If you’re a fan of sports RPGs then it looks like you could be in for a treat with Panic Barn’s latest game: Soccer Story. The game will be a comedic sports RPG where you will face off against all sorts from sharks to toddlers and even ninjas.
A new story
Soccer Story is not to be confused with Golf Story and Sports Story from Australian studio Sidebar Games, but it does appear to be influenced by these popular games.

In this world, football/soccer has been outlawed. Think Footloose, but with the beautiful game. Soccer Story has turn-based combat, but the matches are real time.
From where we are sat it looks like it could be the perfect blend for a sports RPG, especially if the matches themselves are as fun to play as they look. Your weapon of choice in combat is a magical ball that has chosen you to save the sport.

Soccer Story boasts a pretty, pixelated art style that is akin to the Nintendo RPGs of the 2000s, if it can be even half as good then we might just have a must-play game on our hands.
There is no set release date yet for Soccer Story, but we do know it’s coming this year to Steam, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, Stadia and Xbox’s Game Pass later this year.
There will also be beta that you can sign up for here, in anticipation of the release.
