Today Bandai Namco Entertainment released more gameplay of its upcoming anime game Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions.
We get to see a classic match that has taken up many episodes of the anime and many volumes of the original manga, Nankatsu vs. Toho.
We also get to see some of the spectacular “special moves” that the anime and manga got us used to, like Kojiro Hyuga’s “Tiger Shot” and Ken Wakashimazu’s ability to propel himself off the goalposts to catch shoots that would be otherwise impossible to stop.
You can check it out below.
You may not be familiar with the franchise, as its popularity varies a lot from region to region.
While in North America the original Captain Tsubasa anime never rose to similar prominence, I don’t think I’m exaggerating by arguing that in many European and Latin American countries (and of course, Japan) almost every kid grown up in the past forty years knows about it.
In the countries where it has been airing regularly on TV for decases, Captain Tsubasa is an absolute legend, and likely one of the most well-known and loved anime of all time.
Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is currently developed by Tamsoft, and it will release for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC worldwide in 2020.
