The handheld version of the yearly football franchise will feature 500 licensed clubs, eight game modes and new controls.
The touch-screen can be used for precision shooting from the player's viewpoint, as well as for drawing set pieces with the stylus.
It will also offer 3D Street Football, head-to-head online multiplayer, a tournament mode featuring 50 real-world competitions, career and Be a Pro modes as well as a variety of camera angles to make use of the 3D screen.
"They challenged our development team to develop innovative features that would maximise the FIFA experience on 3DS," said producer Matt Prior.
"They delivered intuitive new touch-screen controls and a curved pitch in our Street mode that truly brings the 3D elements to life.
"When you combine these features and many other innovations with all the authentic players and kits for the upcoming season, we are confident that this will be the best football game available on Nintendo 3DS."
The first details of the console editions for FIFA 12 were revealed earlier this year. The first screenshot, featuring Real Madrid's Kaka, was released last month.
All editions of FIFA 12 will be available later this year.
