    505 Games has today announced that Subbuteo, the classic table-top football game, will be making a leap exclusively to the Nintendo DS, and be released across Europe in September.

    Developed by Italian software house Artematica, we’re promises that that the touch screen is used extensively in a game that faithfully re-created the flick-tastic enjoyment of the original Subbuteo.

    Players interact with the game using the stylus on the lower screen to set the player position, defend, attack, pass and shoot, with full control over ball. Using the finger-flick icon on the screen, gamers can choose the angle and power of the kick; while the upper screen gives real time feedback on all the match action with fouls, goals and even aerobatic shots.

    Game modes will include tournaments and traditional leagues, while Subbuteo will also include a wealthy game editor, allowing you to customise team names, kit colours, and logos. What’s more, you’ll be able to indulge in a bit of multiplayer competitiveness via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

    “Subbuteo is an all-time classic and only the Nintendo DS could bring to life the touch and feel of the beautiful game in such an entertaining and engaging way,” commented Ian Howe, Managing Director, 505 Games. “The huge DS market will also allow us to take Subbuteo to the entire family, in much the same way we all first played the game when we were young.”

    Especially because Fifa 08 for the DS has WiFi too.
    But this game is worth the download, hope I like it.

    Looks like another piece of rushly made crap which will be boring as hell.

    Best to stick with proper Subbuteo.
