SEGA's Playstation2 Football Game Return

SEGA looks set to enter the football Playstation2 market with World Football Climax. After years of Virtua Strikers and SEGA Worldwide Soccer, details have today emerged of a new football title from the Japanese developer/publisher that promises to offer a more serious take on the world's favourite sport.

Currently in development for the Playstation2 and scheduled for an unspecified Japanese release in 2006, SEGA has secured licenses for the Spanish LFP, the Dutch Eredivisie and Gouden Gids along with the J-League. Early details reported by Chris Leyton at TotalVideoGames hint at more than 7000 players within the game taken from Europe's 6 major leagues, along with a unique "one-on-one" gameplay feature that makes use of a dynamic camera setup.
