Football fans (soccer, in the US) are in for a treat in sometime in Q2 of this year when X2 Games releases X2 Football 2010, a follow-up to their popular X2 Football 2009 [App Store]. We've recently received details and pre-release screenshots from the developer

This new release sees the addition of over 150 national teams, 10 national leagues, and features online multiplayer for head-to-head action (via Bluetooth, local WiFi, or online).

A core innovation to X2 Football 2010 is the introduction of the Dream Team mode. In Dream Team mode, players must use their skills to try and create the ultimate team of their own. It goes like this: you start out with an initial draft of weakly skilled players and compete in the multiplayer, tournament, and quick match modes to accumulate tokens. Users can then spend these tokens to scout for quality players from across the globe to build up the ultimate Dream Team.

Technical Director Charles Chapman commented,

"We were always confident that X2 Football 2009 would be successful, our entire development team are football fans and this, in turn, lead to the creation of a game that met with world-wide acclaim. But we never, ever want to rest on our laurels.

We've taken on board a lot of feedback from users and have rewritten large parts of the game from the ground up as well as adding more features. Our aim is to ensure that X2 Football 2010 continues in the same tradition that its predecessor set upon first release."

The game features improved AI as compared to the 2009 release and faster gameplay for users with iPhone 3GS / 3G iPod touch devices.

Stay tuned for more info on this release as we get it, as well as a full review when it lands in the App Store.

      No, it's Football ;-) Soccer is just short for "association football".

    Not a soccer fan but that still looks cool. The dream team is a good idea and the graphics look great!

    I always found X2 2009 to be the better soccer/football game over FIFA 2010 primarily due to the controls. You could play FIFA after a lot of patience and practice, but it was still inconsistent. As a game for casual gamers, X2 was clearly aimed at that audience, easy to pick up and play. With the additional content, the new graphics in X2 2010 along with more or less the same control scheme will hopefully make this a bigger winner.

    I'll be honest judging by the screenshots the graphics aren't exceptional, or anything to a whole new level in comparison to X2 Football 2009.

    But I really don't care - because X2 Football 2009's graphics were already decent...and in a game like this, it's the gameplay that truly shines.

    I am really looking forward to the new Dream Team mode, I hope to get a nice team full of great skillful players WITH accurate statistics - like messi with an acceleration state of say... 95 :D

    And indeed I am looking forward to playing with club teams like Liverpool and Real Madrid.

    I hope that they also add a bunch of subtle upgrades to the game, which make the experience just so amazing.

    hehe, I'm reading to start my online X2 Football 2010 online career too, I hope to pwn some mothers.

    I heard briefly after X2 Football 2010 was put on iTunes App Store, it was removed because X2 company want to increase the pricing. Is this allowed?
