The annual sporting sim will now feature Japan’s top football league and all of its teams.
All 18 clubs from the Meiji Yasuda J1 League are coming to the game, including FC Tokyo, Vegalta Sendai, Kashima Antlers, Urawa Reds, Avispa Fukuoka, Sagan Tosu and Omiya Ardija.
There’s also spots for Kashiwa Reysol, Kawasaki Frontale, Yokohama F. Marinos, Shonan Bellmare, Ventforet Kofu, Albirex Niigata, Júbilo Iwata, Nagoya Grampus, Vissel Kobe and Sanfrecce Hiroshima.
In addition to the league competition, FIFA 17 will include the J.League cup tournament and the Suita City Football Stadium, which is the home of Gamba Osaka.
J1 League teams will feature all of the authentic kits, logos and rosters, and will likely be updated as the season goes on.
Fans can even purchase content from the new Japanese clubs in card-based online mode FIFA Ultimate Team.
A “massive” game that’s been years in the making, EA Sports will also introduce a brand new story mode called The Journey.
Starring up and coming footballing prospect Alex Hunter, the story mode will take players on a journey filled with emotional highs and lows.
