Over the weekend, a mysterious entry appeared on Nintendo of America's release calendar. According to the company's website, an Inazuma Eleven game is coming out sometime in Q1 2014. This wacky soccer-themed RPG series has been localized in Europe for years, but the sport's relative lack of popularity in the US and Canada has kept the games from reaching our shores.
Although the complete lack of fanfare means it's possible that the listing is in error, we'll be keeping our eyes open for official announcements from Nintendo's staff. At this point, we don't know exactly which Inazuma Eleven release is planned, but since the game is appearing on 3DS, it is most likely to be the Inazuma Eleven 1-2-3 compilation or Inazuma Eleven 3 on its own.
Update (01/09) - The Inazuma Eleven listing has now been removed from the release calander.
