Inazuma Eleven looks sharp in motion


Inazuma Eleven looks pretty awesome in this four minute montage of anime clips and supernatural soccer shots. One second you’re tapping on a teammate to pass the ball. The next three opponents connect dark purple energy to form a triangle and the death zone attack. Inazuma Eleven is certainly different and for me that’s a plus. Have a look.




Japan will see Inazuma Eleven in stores on August 22 and it’s not confirmed for North America at this time. I like to imagine someone will localize this since Level 5 is on good terms with Nintendo and Square Enix. However, soccer isn’t regarded as fondly in North America. One scenario could yield Nintendo of Europe snapping Inazuma Eleven up while Nintendo of America passes it similar to what happened with the Tingle RPG. That scenario really isn’t that bad since an English version will exist somewhere in the world.
