Lace up your coaching shoes with New Star Soccer Manager, which is out now10 Jul 2018 0
As commenters wisely pointed out, there are better mobile options for football gaming than EA’s FIFA Mobile, which has a World Cup mode available now. One of these is New Star Soccer, which was the runner-up for our Sports Game of the Year in 2012 (iOOTP Baseball managed to edge it out for the top slot that year). Now, there’s a new front office layer available: New Star Soccer Manager is out today for iOS devices.
While it keeps a lot of the simple tap-to-kick charm of the original, New Star Soccer Manager adds in scouting and recruitment, additional team management layers, training, and even stadium building. There’s plenty to do off the field, but the updated look and feel of the action on the pitch is certainly welcome as well.
Right now, New Star Soccer Manager is only available for iOS devices, and it’s free to download from the App Store. Developer New Star Games says they have an Android version in the works, but that won’t show up in time for this weekend’s World Cup semifinals, unfortunately.
