FIFA 15 will launch on September 26 for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3, PC, PS Vita, Wii and 3DS, EA has confirmed.

Whilst the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions will be all-singing, all-dancing on the EA Ignite engine, it appears the old-gen and portable editions will be lacking unspecified features.

"A version of FIFA 15 will also release on the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system, Wii, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita handheld entertainment system this Fall. Not all game features are available on all gaming platforms," wrote EA in the game's announcement press release.

Packshots featured on Game.co.uk show the PS Vita, 3DS and Wii versions to be "Legacy" editions, indicating they are the same game as last year (and in some cases years back), but with updated player rosters.

It's not clear what new features will make it to PS3 and Xbox 360.

The full list of current-gen features, as described by EA, can be seen below:

Agility & Control and Correct Contacts
Leave defenders in the dust or control the ball like the world's best footballers. Players explode into action with improved balance, cuts and closer touches when in possession, giving greater responsiveness and personality to the game's superstars.  Experience brilliant control as you keep the ball in a sprint or when searching for an opening in those close-touch situations.

Authentic Player Visuals
The Next Generation football player is here. Player faces have an incredible level of detail, while character models look and feel powerful and athletic. Kits move realistically and change with the environment, becoming dirty with mud and grass as the match unfolds. 

Dynamic Match Presentation
Match Day feels dynamic and immersive. Improved commentary will highlight unique fan reactions, with chants and behaviour changing on location. New bench reactions, 10-man goal celebrations and more will keep you engaged in the story of the match.

Emotional Intelligence
With over 600 new emotional reactions, players now respond to pivotal moments on the pitch – bad tackles, missed chances, epic goals - as they would in real life.

Living Pitch
Stadiums are alive and full of the emotion that only football can create. Playing surfaces wear down as the match progresses, with boot marks, slide tackles, and debris visible on the pitch. Corner flags move, goal frames shake, and animated LED ad boards bring FIFA 15 to life.

Man-to-Man Battles
Dispossessing your opponent is more rewarding than ever! Intercept and keep the ball with Possession Tackles and new shoulder barges. Feel the impact with big fall physics; shirt pulling will also be visible with enhanced cloth technology. FIFA 15 fundamentally changes the way you compete for the ball.

Team Tactics
Your AI teammates and opponents now recognize what's happening in the match and will adjust their tactics just like real players. Park the Bus, In The Mixer, and Time Wasting are some of the Team Tactics you'll come up against in FIFA 15.

For some reason when I read "man-to-man battles" I automatically imagined a QTE to take possession of the ball. It's obviously not going to happen, but still…a shiver went down my spine.
