New FIFA Street screenshots out game's street pitches
FIFA Street is set to make a major comeback next year after EA admitted that the last incarnation just didn't do the idea justice. These screenshots should help convince you that they mean business.
Following confirmation earlier this week that EA was to revive the FIFA Street franchise, the game developer has released a number of FIFA Street screenshots outing the game’s globetrotting credentials.
Set to utilise the same engine as the upcoming FIFA 12 release, FIFA Street will launch next year with the new screenshots revealing pitches will make use of landmarks in cities such as Barcelona, Amsterdam and St. Petersberg.
In an interview with game outlet PSM3, EA’s Creative Director of the street football sim said: "Street football is all about flare, so we'll have the likes of heel passes and flare passing. What we're debating over right now is how difficult to make a pass.
"Obviously, in the main FIFA series the difficulty isn't in placing a single pass; it's in stringing 15 or 20 passes together to create space so you can get a good shot away," he continued. "But with such small pitches in Street, one successful pass can potentially put you through on goal for a scoring opportunity."
