By Ishaan . July 12, 2011 . 10:58pm

Inazuma Eleven Strikers is finally being released this week, but Level 5 are putting the game out on Saturday, July 16th. Now that all the screenshots and trailers are out of the way, the only thing remaining is the game’s opening movie:



That has to be one of the most enthusiastic opening movies I’ve seen for a game this year.

  • This plays like a real soccer game? I really hope this comes to europe. :)

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Not so much, no. You won’t see these guys flopping 6 feet away from the nearest opponent or staying down for 5 minutes after someone brushes past the side of their leg going for a legit ball.

        Its a soccer based RPG, but its not 100% unrealistic, theres team tactics , theres dribblings, theres defense moves, and theres goals.

        If you play the DS games and remove the exaggerated effects of the moves, you have a classic soccer match (futbol in my country =P).

      • Yeah but I meant controll wise, because the DS Game seemed more like real time strategy RPGs. :) I of course hope it’s still as overexagerated as it was in the DS ;) I just wish for more “traditional” football game controls ^^

  • M’iau M’iaut

    Hmmmm folks really into shonen stuff……

    Whomever could he be referring to?

  • Lexaus_the_Alchemist

    Soccer has never looked so cheerful. I just hope it’s import friendly. =)

  • shion16

    Thats the meaning of a shonen (or a Shonen Jump xD)

    This soccer series is not from JUMP, but it represents all their values (even more than Cpt. Tsubasa that is more one-man teams)

    I really hope an import of more Inazuma Eleven games  >=D

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Don’t forget

      Breaking out the meaningless series tag line as often as possible!

    • It has everything I love, a must buy!


  • Zenkito

    That looked somewhat interesting…anyone watch the anime of this or the earlier series? Is it worth watching?

    • Shinji Kazuya

      I have been watching from the very beggining. Watching Inazuma Eleven GO now. It’s really nice man. Inazuma Eleven feels unique ta me.
      Give it a try :3

      • Zenkito

        well I watched some trailers, AMV’s and well… caved, should have both of them soon :D

  • Shinji Kazuya

    Would be real awsome if this somehow could make it’s way over ta Europe.
    Looks really nice ta play with friends.

  • CheckEmBrah

    I wish I could find an affordable PAL copy of Inazuma Eleven for DS to import, all the ones I ever see on ebay are way overpriced. 

  • Ren

    Hey, let’s play name all the characters in the opening! :D
