Leave it to Nintendo to make a version of Football Manager that will appeal to just about everyone.

Out on 3DS today is Nintendo Pocket Football Club, which is certainly the cutest football manager sim I've ever seen.

As you might expect, you'll be training your team, buying new players, and issuing tactics when they're out on the field.

Training Cards let you build upon your team's strengths, and they can also be used to during matches to push your players further.

The grand plan is to rise through Pro League 1, then the Federation Cup, and on to the European Challenge Cup.

If that's not enough competition for you, then you can register your team online and take on other players from around Europe. You'll soon be able to track your team's online ranking and stats here.

Nintendo Pocket Football Club costs £10.79 / €11.99 during the first two weeks of its launch. After May 1st 2014, the price will go up to £13.49 / €14.99.
We'll have a full review, soon.
