 +**//Nintendo Pocket Football Club//** is a football management game by [[organisation:ParityBit]] for the [[tool:hardware:nintendo_3ds|3DS]]. It's a follow-up to a game they made on the [[tool:hardware:GBA]]. A follow-up has since been released in Japanese only, for mobile phones.

 > A charming, simplified football management sim. The main appeal for me are the cute graphics in the replays. They have lots of nice little animations, and the games have a pretty good flow! Though the offside calls are WAY too strict. > A charming, simplified football management sim. The main appeal for me are the cute graphics in the replays.

 +
 +==== Zones ====
 +
 +One of the ways you have to control how your team plays is the 'Zones' option you find in the pre-game or training menu under 'Team Tactics'. Changing the length and position of the box can have a big difference on how your team plays: how they pass, how much they run...
 +
 +> A narrower zone will make your players pass and intercept passes more. A wider zone means they will play a longer passing game.
 +> The further forward you put your zone the greater the chance of getting near the oppositions goal but also of leaving your goal open to attack. Further back creates a more defensive strategy.
