Get Ready For Some Soccer Challenge, Dino Dini is Back and So is Kick Off!

Dino Dini's Kick Off™ Revival , the reboot of the soccer arcade hit is now available on PC in a full new version

Paris, September 12, 2017 – Dino Dini and  The Digital Lounge are thrilled to announce that after the PlayStation® Vita and PlayStation® 4 last year,  Dino Dini's Kick Off™ Revival  is now available on  Steam for PC, offering gamers a new incredible soccer challenge.

Back in 1989, the original game, acclaimed by several generations of gamers, was advertised with a clear message: " Playing it is easy, mastering it will take time - A lot of time". 2017 players are warned: this is still true with Dino Dini's Kick Off™ Revival !

Designed for people who want to get the satisfaction that comes from executing skillful moves under pressure,  Dino Dini's Kick Off™ Revival  is a game for the hardcore gamers where success and failure boils down to the player’s dedication at mastering the game. Called by some the  "Dark Souls" of soccer games, this game has the same philosophy that drives skill-based games where the game itself is a sport.  

The only question is, do you have the dedication and skill to master  Dino Dini's Kick Off™ Revival ? It's not a question that can be answered quickly, those who have tried to do that have failed! But don't worry, as long as you focus on what matters - building your skill and strategy - you will have plenty of fun along the way. This is not a game that just hands you goals, you have to earn them! When you score an amazing header goal in injury time to win a match after coming back from behind, it feels like nothing on earth!

This new Steam version benefits from all the improvements made to the game since its first release on PS4 TM in june 2016.

About Kick Off

The franchise Kick Off is a series of video games simulation football born in 1989. Kick Off, the first game of the series, was designed and programmed by Dino Dini and edited by Anco for Amiga and Atari ST in 1989. He has been at the top of the best sales rankings and has won several awards. Player Manager is a game derived from Kick Off developed by Dino Dini and released in 1990. This is the first game to combine management mechanics (including game tactics, leagues, transfers and players with detailed features) And a football game engine (based on that of Kick Off). Dino Dini then developed Kick Off 2. The latter was released for the 1990 World Cup and featured several new features, including the aftertouch, an innovative concept that allowed the player to adjust the ball's trajectory in the middle of the match. Dino Dini left Anco to join Virgin Games in 1992. GOAL !, published in 1993, is considered by Dino Dini as the sequel to Kick Off 2. GOAL! Is also released on the Sega Megadrive / Genesis console under the title "Dino Dini's Soccer". Anco retained the names Kick Off and Player Manager and published several other editions of these games, but Dino Dini did not participate in their development.
