After Football Manager Mobile, SEGA Releases Football Manager Touch 2016 For Tablets, With 50% More Dimensions For 100% More Dollars

Just last week SEGA published Football Manager Mobile 2016, a version of its long-running soccer management sim that skips out on fancy graphics in order to make it play nice with older hardware. Now Football Manager Touch 2016, a more high-powered version with full 3D simulated football matches, has joined it. SEGA's naming scheme is a little convoluted: Touch is more of a high-end game than Mobile, though both of them support mobile hardware and touch controls.

It's also much more expensive. FMM2016 wasn't cheap at $8.99 plus in-app purchases, but Football Manager Touch 2016 costs a whopping  $19.99... and yes, it still has in-app purchases, up to $6.99.

Football Manager Mobile 2016, SEGA's Less-Demanding Soccer Management Sim, Is Now Available For 9 Bucks Plus In-App Purchases

Considering the last year of events in the NFL, my usual cheeky poking of soccer fans would probably be in bad taste. After all, when one of the most visible "managers" in America's version of football is Jerry Jones, a man who would probably punch a baby in the face while he ate a puppy sandwich if it meant he could win a Superbowl, I'm in no position to take jabs at The Beautiful Game.* So, for all you football fans who dream about managing a World Cup team, SEGA is back with another entry in its endless Football Manger series.

Football Manager Classic 2015 Treats High-End Android Tablets To A 3D Version Of The Coaching Simulator

Don't let the name fool you. Football Manager Classic 2015 isn't an old version of the somehow-popular series of soccer/football coaching titles. You're not in for a nostalgic dose of pixelated graphics (in this case, that's what the regular entries are for). Football Manager Classic 2015 hits Google Play with 3D visuals, more players, and more languages. In short, it's closer to the PC version of the game.

Football Manager Classic 2015 supports less hardware than the most recent Football Manager Handheld. It only runs on what the developer considers high-end tablets. Note that while devices such as the NVIDIA SHIELD, Nexus 9, and LG G Pad 3.8 GPE are supported, the 2013 Nexus 7 is not. Check out the full list of devices to see if your tablet is compatible.

Square Enix Releases Champ Man 15, The Frowniest Soccer Management Game Ever, On The Play Store

Pardon me, readers. This is usually where I make a distinction to point out the fact that most of the world calls its favorite sport football. (We do that in America too, but it's a different football, and we call everyone else's football "soccer.") That isn't important. What is important is that Square Enix thinks that the image below is the best way to advertise its new game, Champ Man 15.

Look at this man. According to Google Image Search, he's Arsène Wenger, the manager of London's Arsenal Football Club. According to his face, Arsène's doctor just told him that there was no choice but to amputate the arm he burned unsuccessfully attempting to save his dog and her litter of puppies from the fire in his 100-year-old family home.

[New Game] Sega's Football Manager Handheld 2013 Caters To OCD Soccer Fans Everywhere

With college football nearly over and the NFL ending just a month or so afterwards, pigskin fans are... oh, wait. This is the other kind of football. Sega's Football Manager franchise has long enabled obsessive compulsive soccer fans to live out their somewhat sedate dreams of managing a pro club. It looks like the developer is giving the handheld versions the same yearly release cycle that the console and PC games enjoy - as well as a nice price bump up to $9.99. Hey, it's a business, not a sport.
