Bandai Namco released this awesome animated trailer for the latest Captain Tsubasa: Rise Of New Champions soccer game.
The wildly popular Japanese manga comics were adapted into a TV show and later into video games. All have been extremely successful, but there hasn’t been a console release for the franchise for over 10 years. Now, Playstation players will get a chance to take on the top teams in the world in this epic soccer simulator. Move over FIFA, there’s a new game in town…
The trailer blends real footage from the game with animated scenes that hark back to the much loved tv series. The show and comics were massively popular in Japan when they were released and were partially credited for the increasing interest in football in the country. Many of Japan’s top players say that they wanted to be like Captain Tsubasa when they were kids. Their national team made a surprise progression into the round of 16 of the last world cup, where they narrowly lost to Belgium. Are you excited to play this new release? Let us know down in the comments.
