A demo for soccer title 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil is now available on Xbox 360 and will launch on PlayStation 3 later today, according to a tweet from the EA Sports FIFA Twitter account.

The PS3 version will be available when the PlayStation Store updates this evening.

The demo will include the game's Kick Off Mode and will have several playable teams: Brazil, England, Mexico, Australia, Japan, New Zealand, U.S. and Ivory Coast.

2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil, this year's World Cup-specific soccer game, will include an expanded control scheme from last fall's FIFA 14 as well as additional animations for special passes and extra dribble and flick mechanics. Up to 32 local players can participate in the game's offline Road to the FIFA World Cup mode, choosing from the game's 203 available teams. A Road to Rio de Janeiro is also available in online mode, in which users can play their way across 12 different Brazil host cities. The game will launch on April 15 in North America and April 17 in Europe for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Earlier this month, Japan announced that it had adopted beloved Pokemon Pikachu as its mascot for the real-world 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
