FIFA 12 3DS producer Matt Prior has confirmed that the game will not feature online play.
EA said last week in its formal announcement of the game that it’ll feature “fully authentic 11 versus 11 gameplay, head-to-head online matches using Nintendo Wi-Fi connection.”
Alas, not to be. It’s local only.
“Currently, we only have local head-to-head play, but server-based online is certainly something we would be looking at in the future,” Prior told Nintendo World Report.
And that’s the end of that chapter.
FIFA 12 launches this autumn.
