Today Bandai Namco released a new trailer of its upcoming anime soccer game Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions.
The trailer showcases another story mode that we can expect from the game, Episode: New Hero.
This is quite peculiar as it lets you create a custom character thanks to a rather deep creation suite and choose a team among those rivaling Tsubasa’s Nankatsu including Furano, Musashi, and Toho.
This will allow you to “fight” alongside heroes like Hikaru Matsuyama, Jun Misugi, and Kojiro Hyuga in a very interesting alternate look at the story.
You can check it out below alongside artwork for many of the characters you’ll meet in the game.
Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is currently developed by Tamsoft, and it will release for PS4, Nintendo Switch, and PC worldwide in 2020.
While the franchise is certainly very well known, you may not be familiar with it, as its popularity varies a lot from region to region.
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.
