Today Bandai Namco released an extensive gameplay video of the anime soccer game Captain Tsubasa: Rise Of New Champions.
The video shows PS4 gameplay and it’s pretty special for the fans of the game, as it features the “Episode New Hero” campaign.
The feature centers on creating your own character and joining one of the three main “rival” schools of the series Furano, Musashi, or Toho.
The character creation looks quite extensive even allowing you to select your friends within the team. This time around we get to play for Musashi alongside one of the most beloved Captain Tsubasa characters, the prince of the field himself, Jun Misugi.
Interestingly, the story appears to be translated to the modern-day, as Misugi is shown wielding a smartphone.
The version showcased is the one for PS4. You can check it out below.

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.
