EA Sports has revealed that people who pre-order their upcoming street soccer title, FIFA Street
, will receive extra content based around Lionel Messi. Messi will be the centerpiece of an adidas™ all-star team along with 12 of the greatest footballers in the world. Perhaps his inclusion as a pre-order incentive isn't too surprising considering he's gracing the cover
of the latest edition of the Street
franchise as well.
In addition to the ability to play as Messi, who has also just signed a multi-year endorsement deal with EA, pre-orders will also net you an exclusive venue "inspired by street footballers playing in and around the Plaça de Catalunya in the historic center of Barcelona", which Messi himself lent time to designing.
EA has also released a video and several screens of the pre-order content.

will be available in March 2012. Unlike many pre-order incentives, this one will be available world-wide.
