Over on PS Blog EU, studio director Miles Jacobson wrote, “From the very start of this project, the most important thing we had to work out was how to bring to PS Vita the same match engine that features in the PC/Mac game, along with the 3D match view.

“We’re very proud of the handheld versions of Football Manager that we’ve put out for the past few years, but it’s always been a frustration to us that current smartphones and tablets just aren’t powerful enough to deliver the full FM experience.

“The possibility of running the match engine on a handheld was what drew us to PS Vita in the first place and although it took a lot of hard work, with programmers making what seems impossible possible, to make it happen, the results are clear. It works!”

It follows confirmation of this Football Manager 2014 PS Vita console bundle, which hits stores on April 18.
