Today Bandai Namco released Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions in North America and Europe, and the publisher is celebrating with a launch trailer.
The trailer includes what you would expect, and that is plenty of epic anime soccer including many of the well-known Captain Tsubasa characters. Basically, it’s 1.5 minutes of pure fanservice.
You can watch it below.
You can also enjoy the first screenshots and artwork, more screenshots, the first trailer, the second trailer, a comment from the series’ creator, the first gameplay, another look at the game, a few recent screenshots showing members of other national teams, a trailer showing off the German team, one focusing on the American team, one on Senegal, one showcasing the Dutch team, one focusing on France, another showing Argentina, one showcasing England, one featuring Italy, one showing off Uruguay, one about Brazil, an extensive trailer about the game as a whole, one about multiplayer, and another about the “New Hero” single-player campaign.
Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is now available for PS4, Switch, and PC.
While the franchise is certainly very well known, not everyone is familiar with it, as its popularity varies considerably from region to region.
While In North America the original Captain Tsubasa anime never rose to 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.
