Today Bandai Namco released a new trailer of its upcoming anime soccer game Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions.
The trailer showcases the Tsubasa Episode mode, which is basically the story mode of the game.
This mode includes the middle school arc from the original anime, featuring some of the most iconic matches that have basically forged the childhood of many in my generation.
Depending on the score and on what’s going on during a match, certain cutscenes may trigger, some reproducing the original story, while other completely original.
We also see many familiar characters and their special shoots. Basically, this is as epic as it can be.
You can watch it 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.
