There’s two vital important facts surrounding Inazuma Eleven. It has an amazing DS title created by the legendary Level-5 team, and secondly, I REALLY want to play a translated version of this, although I do hear a western port of this is on its way (if trademarks are anything to go by). But while I sit patiently for a version I can play (and understand) on my DS I’ll just have to settle for random news surrounding the series. Like that found in the tweet by Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino (translated by Andriasang).
"Meeting for the console version of Inazuma Eleven. Different from the DS version’s RPG type, this has, maybe, the feeling of sports fighting. Perhaps those who like Smash Bros. will enjoy it."
So while this doesn’t sound anything at all like the DS version (which was basically a high school RPG style game with soccer matches instead of fights) I’m definitely eager to hear which consoles we’ll see this arrive on and how it will play.
