Sega announces Football Manager Handheld 2012 app

Out on iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad tonight.

Sega has announced Football Manager Handheld 2012, due out around midnight tonight for iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad (with iOS 3.0 or above).

The game launches in a single package, meaning you can play it on multiple devices, should you own them.

If you have Apple TV and iOS 5 you can mirror Football Manager Handheld 2012 from your iPhone or iPad to your TV screen while controlling it with the handheld device.

Miles Jacobson, boss of developer Sports Interactive, took to the Football Manager forum to make the announcement and outline the game's features.

It includes updates leagues and competitions, an improved user interface and the addition of Facebook and social networking options.

It also includes the new Challenge mode, which allows players to take on pre-defined scenarios. You select the challenge, your team and take it on.

It's "similar to the challenges that were in International Superstar Soccer all those years ago," Jacobson said. "But then that really shows my age..."

"So as well as the main management game mode, and the free car/station finder that helps you get to and from football stadiums, you now have another game mode. For no extra price."
