In Inazuma Eleven Ares, people get to see an alternate take on the series. The events of the original Inazuma Eleven happened and the Raimon Eleven won at the Football Frontier. However, unlike in the original series, aliens did not attack. Instead, youth soccer teams need sponsors to play. Asuto and his teammates are brought to Raimon Junior High to become the school’s new team and enter the Football Frontier.
Inazuma Eleven Ares is expected to release on the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Android devices and iOS devices in Japan in Fall 2018.
