The Nintendo 3DS version of FIFA 12 won't feature any kind of online multiplayer, EA Sports has confirmed - it will still offer local multiplayer though.
This contradicts earlier reports, which stated that the game would feature head-to-head online matches using the consoles Wi-Fi capabilities. StreetPass and SpotPass will also be missing from FIFA 12.
"Currently, we only have local head-to-head play, but server-based online is certainly something we would be looking at in the future," producer Matt Prior told NintendoWorldReport.
The game is due for release at exactly the same time as the other FIFA 12 titles, but it seems as though the 3DS version may be the least impressive version.
