There aren’t many offerings for soccer fanatics on the video game front. For front office tinkerers, the life-draining Football Manager is a fantastic option, albeit the only real one. FIFA and PES have dueled for years over player-controlled supremacy, though FIFA has stagnated dramatically over the past three years and PES still lacks so many licenses.
Other than lackluster mobile options that’ll get you through a patch of boredom on an airplane, there isn’t much else. The shortlived FIFA Street franchise was nice, but it hasn’t existed since the fourth iteration came out in the first quarter of 2012 on the previous generation of consoles.
That’s why these gorgeously rendered photos of a street soccer court in Brazil play on the imagination to such a tantalizing degree. They’re titled “RIO” in the Imgur folio, so we know the specifics of that, at least.
Redditor redrad56 posted these on Reddit’s r/gaming on Friday, and hot damn are these just some of the greatest things you’ll see all week.
