Football Manager, the club managing simulator, is getting a port to the Nintendo Switch. This is perhaps one of the more exciting ports to be headed to the convertible console; despite there not being much information about which version of the game that’s being used.
The information was independently confirmed by Engadget, who were following up on a report that Football Manager received a rating for the Switch in South Korea. Football Manager game director Miles Jacobson similarly teased the release with a quote from Eric Cantona.
When the seagulls follow leaky Korean trawlers, it’s because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea. We’re not ready to talk about this, but we will be soon. Keep an eye on @footballmanager for Switch flavoured sardines.

It’s unlikely that we will see the full version of Football Manager on the Switch; seeing that the Touch version received the Korean rating instead. This is perhaps somewhat better for the Switch, as it cuts down on additional gameplay features like pre-match promotion and media management.
Despite the name Football Manager Touch is also available on PC, Mac, and Linux. Meaning that it isn’t a mobile port, but instead a more focused game.
