Another year, another FIFA. Not much has changed in FIFA 22, the game’s new Hypermotion technology looked interesting, but is only noticeable when you actually search for it. However, there is one thing that surprised us, a new cosmetic pack in Ultimate Team mode. FUT allows you to purchase cosmetics such as jerseys, tifos, and banners to personalize your team, stadium, and atmosphere. Among these cosmetics is the anime-themed Mirai’s Mecha Soul pack.
As spotted by Eurogamer, this set includes anime-themed cosmetics based on an anime character in the universe called Mirai. “Mirai, a rookie pilot engineer, and her old mecha, Kako, faced off against the first level XI Kaiju in history,” the pack’s description reads. “When Mirai bravely challenged the Kaiju, Kako became fueled by the strength of her soul. Celebrate the legend of Mirai’s mecha soul with exclusive personalization items in store now for a limited time.”
The bundle includes a giant Mirai-Chan trophy which will certainly distract the corner kick taker while he tries to put one in the box. There is also a Mecha Core VIP area for loyal season ticket holders. While this cosmetic set seems like a fun addition, it’s actually a bit pricey. The Mirai’s Mecha Soul Pack, which includes two banners, two tifos, a crest, a stadium theme, home and away kits, a field trophy and VIP space, will cost you 135,000 FUT Coins or 1,500 FIFA Points; it’s about $ 16. It seems like a steep price to pay for a kawaii makeover.
The overall reaction to this set on the FIFA subreddit is quite negative. Fans have not only expressed their disdain for the design of the theme, but also for its hefty price tag.
Elsewhere in FIFA 22 Ultimate Team, EA has revealed its characters to watch. To be considered a player to watch, a player must have recently transferred to a new team. Considering the roller coaster of a transfer spell we’ve had, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Romelu Lukaku made the list. Additionally, a pre-order of FIFA 22 Ultimate Edition would have given you one of these players for free.
