Inazuma Eleven 3 Uses A 4 Gigabit Cart, Too

0 A little while ago, Level-5 president Akihiro Hino celebrated the successful "official" unveiling of Inazuma Eleven 3: Challenge the World on his Twitter feed. The game will release in two versions on July 1st — Spark and Bomber — for 4,980 yen.


Expanding upon its predecessor, Inazuma Eleven 3 will feature 2,000 characters and 300 special moves. As we’ve covered previously, it can also link up with Inazuma Eleven 2 to transfer characters over from the game.


Most interestingly, Inazuma Eleven 3 is the fourth game that will use a 4-gigabit cartridge. The others are Ni no Kuni, Tokimeki Memorial: Girl’s Side 3rd Story, and LovePlus +. What’s going on here? Did Nintendo drop the fees on their cartridges to give DS support a boost or are they giving preference to certain developers?
