FIFA 12 3D producer Matt Prior has told Official Nintendo Magazine that players will be able to download extra content for the game via SpotPass.
"We are not utilising StreetPass but we'll have a day one kit and roster update to make sure we are fully authentic for the new season and SpotPass is one of the ways that you can download the update," said Prior.
Yet Prior is more concerned with getting the gameplay spot on than making use of all of the 3DS console's unique features.
"We looked into all of the unique 3DS features early in the development cycle but with our first foray into Fifa on the 3DS we wanted to make sure we got the fundamentals right and focused on getting the core game solid while at the same time innovating in key areas.
"We did this by developing a lot of content and modes and developing the gameplay with unique 3DS features which we have done with the addition of touchscreen shooting. We wanted to focus on getting those things right and creating a very solid and fun gameplay experience."
