Love Football has one major difference from conventional soccer games, a feature that Namco considers as its biggest selling point. Most sports games are played from a third-person perspective, but Namco wants to give gamers the true feeling of playing soccer from an athlete's point of view. To do this, the developers of Love Football have adopted a first-person camera angle, where the gamer sees the action from the view of a single soccer player on the field.
Love Football producer Nobuhisa Mikoda explains that the new perspective gives the gamer all the experiences of competing as an on-field participant, including fighting for the ball against other players, the pressure of getting marked by multiple opponents, and getting into defensive position when someone else has the ball. Of course, the game also allows the gamer to switch to other characters on the field.
Although the feature will probably be unique to the Japanese version's release, one of Love Football's core gaming modes will be a "Japanese representative story mode." Gamers will be able pick their favorite Japanese national team member and get to experience the joy and pressure of competing on the field as an athlete in the spotlight.
