Eclipse Games is bringing an arcade football game to the Nintendo Switch next month with Legendary Eleven: Epic Football.
It’s a blend of over-the-top action – flaming footballs, outrageous bicycle kicks, and comic book graphics – is a fun palette cleanser. Especially if you’re used to playing FIFA 18.
Check out the trailer below:
What looks cool about Legendary Eleven: Epic Football is its inclusion of classic players and teams.
The blurb describes the game as, “An epic arcade football game inspired by the golden age of football spanning the 70’s to the 90’s. Choose from 36 teams full of glorious haircuts, moustaches and legends in short shorts.”
It also focusses on international teams, with five cups to win: Africa Cup, Asia Cup, America Cup, Europe Cup, and, of course, World Cup.
Also, in very cool throwback, it features stickers to collect for your album, which also build your team. It’s a similar feature to FIFA 18’s Ultimate Team cards, but it’s done over to look like a glorious old faded-colour sticker album – rejoice!
It’s due out on Steam Early Access on May the 29th and will arrive on Nintendo Switch on June the 8th. There are PS4 and Xbox One versions planned, but no release dates yet.
