Foosball 2012 Gets a Release Date, Demo, and More

July 19, 2012 Written by Paulmichael Contreras

In case you’d forgotten, Foosball 2012 was announced for both the PS3 and PS Vita in March. Featuring cross-play multiplayer as well as game saves (or as Kojima-san would say, transfarring), buy-once, play-twice, and even PlayStation Move functionality thrown in for good measure, this was sounding like one solid PSN release. A solid price and release date was not yet known, however. Those have just been detailed, but wait! There’s more!

Developer Grip Games has set loose a press release all the way from the Czech Republic. The admirably-loaded PSN game now has a few release dates set in stone: July 24th for North and South America, and July 25th for Europe and other territories. Foosball 2012 will also launch with a launch-day demo, so you can try the game and see if it’s worth your money.

Okay, a demo and release date is all well and good, but what kinda price do they think they can get away with for a foosball game, you ask? Actually, a reasonable $7.99 USD/6.99 EUR. If you’re a PlayStation Plus member, then those prices are slashed to $5.99 USD/4.99 EUR. Get ready to leave the bar/pub behind and enjoy up to four-player multiplayer utilizing any combination of DualShock and Vita controllers locally. So, is this an enticing enough feature set and price-point for you to lay down the cash and load up your PSN wallet? Let us know in the comments below.
