FIFA Soccer 64 is a video game developed by EA Canada and published by Electronic Arts for the Nintendo 64.

Development[edit]

It is similar to the 32-bit versions of FIFA 97, and was initially announced under the same title.[1] High numbers of pre-orders for FIFA 64 led Electronic Arts to reverse its recent decision to withdraw from Nintendo 64 software development, instead announcing plans to release several EA Sports games for the Nintendo 64 over the next year.[2]

Gameplay[edit]

FIFA Soccer 64 is part of the FIFA video game series.[3]

Reception[edit]

Next Generation reviewed the Nintendo 64 version of the game, rating it two stars out of five, and stated that "The only advantage FIFA has over other soccer games is the complete international players license, which means you can play through World Cup games with the real planers. However, when you look at quality games like J-League and Goal Storm '97, you realize that the poorly designed FIFA needs some major retooling."[3]
