Footie of the 1980's is making a comeback as Square Enix's Beautiful Games Studio announces the upcoming release of footie management sim Championship Manager 1980's Legends for iPhone and iPod Touch.
Big haircuts, home internationals, English players going abroad and mobile phones everywhere... sound familiar? The 1980's are coming back round again and now is your chance to relive the footballing decade your way.
With Championship Manager 1980's Legends, prospective managers are able to change history as they take over some of the biggest teams from the decade, with all the players to match. Packed with a database featuring thousands of players from the 1980's you really will be able to build your dream team of the decade.
Will you be able to tear Lineker away from Leicester City before Everton do? Or will Glenn Hoddle's long passing skills attract you to make a bid for him?
Championship Manager 1980's Legends also features illustrated news stories from throughout the decade, as they happened. With multiple start dates, you can chose exactly when you want to drop into the decade of big hair and tiny shorts.
"It's almost like the 1980's never went away -- Kylie Minogue is still releasing songs, there's another Royal wedding, talent shows are on prime time television and King Kenny's back at Liverpool. It's like we never left the decade behind," says Roy Meredith, General Manager, Championship Manager.
"1980's Legends lets you take that revival one step further and manage some of the greatest names in football, back in a decade when football was about mullets and mud. With 1980's styled visuals you really will immerse yourself in the era."
Championship Manager 1980's Legends is due for release in March, and will follow on from the popular Championship Manager 1970's Legends which is available now from the App Store.
