Today Bandai Namco released a brand new trailer of its upcoming anime soccer game Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions.
The trailer is very extensive, clocking at over seven minutes, showing off the different modes that you can play, including the ability to play as Tsubasa himself or join one of his rival teams as a brand new character.
We also get to see the World Youth Tournament, including a glimpse on many of the national teams and anime cutscenes.
Unsurprisingly, it’s basically a bundle of memories for the fans of the series, and it’s absolutely epic.
You can check it out below.

While the franchise is certainly very well known, not everyone is familiar with it, as its popularity varies a lot from region to region.
While In North America the original Captain Tsubasa anime never rose to the same relevance, in many European and Latin American countries (and of course, Japan) almost every kid who grew up in the past forty years knows about it.
