Attoi has announced that Soccer Slammers will release on Nintendo Switch, a 2-on-2 arcade soccer experience that will be kicked into touch in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

The game takes inspiration from NBA Jam, which is known for its over-the-top presentation with players jumping higher than normally possible and making outrageous slam dunks.

“We have a new previously unannounced game that will be coming out in time for the World Cup! WHAT!? I know, right!! It is a fun side project that we’ve been kicking around for a while now (pun intended), “Atooi founder Jools Watsham explains.

“It’s an arcade soccer game, called Soccer Slammers. Taking inspiration from NBA Jam, Soccer Slammers is a 2-on-2 arcade soccer experience focused on fast, fun gameplay for Nintendo Switch.”

Soccer Slammers will release on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch in 2018.
