Bergsala is Nintendo’s game distributor in certain European territories, such as Norway and Sweden. Today, the company announced that Nintendo are publishing Level 5’s Inazuma Eleven (the first game) in Europe.


The news comes via Bergsala’s Twitter, further followed up with a post on Nintendo’s Swedish website with screenshots. Inazuma Eleven is due for a January 28th, 2011 release.


This announcement is in line with comments made by Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, who recently stated that localizing and releasing currently unlocalized software on the Nintendo DS would allow Nintendo to continue to take advantage of the system’s existing audience, despite the upcoming 3DS launch.


In addition to Inazuma Eleven, Nintendo also presently publish Level 5’s Professor Layton series outside Japan. Here’s what Inazuma Eleven looks like in English:
