Foosball 2012 Coming To PS3 And PS Vita, With PS Move Support And Cross Play

Hi Everybody! This is Jakub from Grip Games, the folks who brought you The Impossible Game, MiniSquadron and One Epic Game. We are back to present you our newest creation – Foosball 2012 for PlayStation 3 and PS Vita.

As you have probably guessed – it is a table football (foosball) game. The very first one for PlayStation 3 & PS Vita, so we made sure that it is packed up with a lot of features and game modes, like various kinds of tables (American style, European style…), customizations, ball types and trick shots to keep you entertained and experimenting for hours.

The ‘World Tour’ single player mode will let you travel across the globe and challenge AI opponents in nearly 30 locations. More social players can look forward to a local multiplayer for up to four and online multiplayer, where you can match against the rest of the world and rank up to become the table football champion.

PlayStation Move is also supported on PS3. If you own this magic wand, you can control Foosball 2012 exactly like you would control a real table football, with 1:1 movement precision. If you don’t own PlayStation Move, DUALSHOCK 3 is also supported and, if you have ever played a football game before, the controls will feel immediately familiar. The PS Vita controls are the same as on the PS3 controller, thanks to the dual analog sticks, and touch controls are also supported, if that is your thing.

Foosball 2012 is going to be a lot of fun for everyone – not just fans of table football. It is easy to jump in to and enjoy instantaneously, but it also provides a lot of space to truly master your skills and rule the online leaderboards. If you are looking for a game that you won’t put away after a few hours, but a game that will motivate you to keep playing and get better, look no further. And I think that I even don’t have to mention just how fun this game can be when you have a few friends available for a local multiplayer ;-)

Foosball 2012 will be released for both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita as a downloadable game via the PlayStation Store, and will offer every single Cross Play feature between PS3 and PS Vita that you can think of.

First of all, the game supports cross-platform multiplayer – PS3 players can play against PS Vita players online, and vice versa. Secondly, if you own PS3 and PS Vita, the game automatically synchronizes your save data between both versions. You can start playing the game on your PS3 and then take it on the road with your PS Vita, and start exactly from where you left off.

And the best news of them all – if you buy the PS3 version of Foosball 2012 on either platform then you will be able to play on both platforms at no extra charge. The same applies for any additional purchasable content.

The release is planned for the end of this spring. In the meantime, you can follow the game on Twitter and Facebook  or visit the official website to get all the latest news and also keep checking back on the PlayStation Blog!

I hope to see you all soon online, playing Foosball 2012!

Did you enjoy this?

This sounds fun as hell!

I still really like the “2 for 1″ deal thing, like with MotorStorm RC. It makes it feel like a really good deal.

Especially considering a game like this would be perfect for the Vita, and could be pretty fun with the Move controller. :D

This looks really interesting, what will the price be?

Jakub Mikyska 22 March, 2012 @ 3:59 pm   5

Thanks for all the positive comments. I cannot comment the price yet, but we are aiming at ~ 7.99 Euro. We will announce the price once it has been decided.

€8 sounds good, hopefully there’ll also be a custom soundtrack option for the PS3 version! :)

 

It says spring in the video but spring end’s on Sunday?

 

MAX 8€, best would be if you could price it like Motorstorm:RC.

 

This looks very interesting. Played some real life Foosball last year and I was crushed. Hope to get my a-game going with this game:D

Definetely not for me, but kudos for taking that step on the dual console road, hopefully it’ll clear the way, if only slightly, for other, well all games becoming ps3/vita compatable, so for that i wish you’s well. Though tbh i ‘don’t’ like the trophy system presently implemented in likes of ms-rc and probably this, ie beat the game on vita and every PS3 games trophy gets unlocked as well, it’s both unfair and i think has made some vita owners sing too highly the praises of these ‘cheaper’ games, and if the ppl at sony are reading the comments, as they prob are, all the positive feedback about said game must figure into the future vitas prospects.. guess i’ll be popular now ..lol.. but just my opo.
