Street Power Football Coming To PC & Consoles This Summer
SFL Interactive and Maximum Games have joined forces to bring the arcade freestyle footy game Street Power Football (or Street Power Soccer in America) to PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC via Steam this Summer.
It certainly appears that Street Power Football is going to be quite deep. Real world players – Sean Garnier, Melody Donchet, JaviFreestyle, Liv Cooke, Andrew Henderson, Raquel “Freestyle” Benetti, Daniel Got Hits and 2 more to be announced soon – are to be included in the game along with their signature freestyle moves and stages.
With 6 game modes, 4-player local or online party play, music from from The Black-Eyed Peas, DJ Snake and Snap and some content from the official Red Bull Street Style World Championship stage, it looks to be shaping up into the FIFA Street game we’ve all been begging for for years.
