Great job EA! The more I play it, the more I enjoy FIFA 16. All these little details and stuff to unlock keeps me coming back. Something that PES (as good as the gameplay is as well) lacks.

I'm really excited about his and I have no idea why. Hopefully this means Japan's National Team is also added.

WOW!!! EA really did it. I'm more Hyped for Fifa 17.

More licenses are never a bad thing, although I see no scenario in which I ever play with any of these teams.

Nice add. Thanks EA

Astronomical addition. Very excited to see the J-League. My first KONAMI game was J-League WE 97, I used to play with the Urawa Red Diamonds because they were the closest to look like Manchester United. This is great news!

I think EA had to release this info, since the J1 League spilled the beans with their own press release a while back.

This is nice but I am still waiting on my Jupiler League EA.

Wish we could get Ukraine. Have had Shakhtar in ROW for a while, and I thought Dinamo Kiev used to be in as well, but it's a pretty good league, and would be fun to play, and a good talent pool to add to the database for MM.

So in game are the Japanese, Korean, Australian, and Saudi Arabian leagues and I heard rumors about the Chinese league?

no reason why they can't have an AFC Champions League type tournament for Career Mode

So where's the guy always asking about the J League?

On a related note, I wish EA would include MLS in their fake Copa America (Copa LatAM) tournament.

Pretty pumped for this. I've been waiting for one of them do this for a while. I always figured it would be Konami though.

SUGOI!!!!!

EA: does this mean the J League stat overlays as well? Like this years Bundesliga? They should try to do the same for the Serie A. Spanish BBVA is licensed now, so hopefully it means the same is done for it like the Premier League

Do I see empty seats at the top right of the stadium? I don't remember seeing that in FIFA the last few years.

So...is this enough teams now for a pseudo AFC? They have a south american and UCL already. Would be cool if the Saudi, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Australian teams have a cup. That would be badass


Edit: oops no China yet, but 4 leagues should be plenty for an AFC

Hi, right here brother lol...finally and words can't describe how happy I am, but now I am kinda hoping they have more asian leagues, because in career mode, you don't want to play as one of the MLS teams because they don't have any cups vs teams from other countries, so at the end of the day, i only play BPL or other teams in Europe because of the Euro league....

I think four is enough, right now we have Australia, Korea, Saudi, J-League, I wish more Asian leagues will be involved, C-league and some western asian teams will be perfect!
