FIFA Street release date confirmed

New social-focused 'Street Network' feature also detailed

EA has slapped a March 16 UK release date on FIFA Street, with the rest of the world getting the Xbox 360 and PS3 game three days earlier.


The firm has also announced a new feature called the Street Network, which is designed to encourage social competition among players.

Requiring an internet connection and an Origin account, Street Network will let players "capture video of their best tricks and share them in-game with friends, showing off their personal favourites and embarrassing their opponents.

"In addition, friends will be able to track and compare each other's progress throughout the game, including World Tour story mode and Head-to-Head Online Seasons, and follow each other's status in EA Sports Football Club".

The FIFA Street reboot uses the FIFA 12 engine, meaning it'll feature the same physics as its full pitch counterpart.

It also builds on FIFA 12's skills library with 50 new ways to make your opponent look daft. Producer Sid Misra told us a whole host of new features will make FIFA Street "the first true quality street football experience".
