Level-5 Provides Inazuma Eleven Update
Level-5 provided an update on its latest title in the Inazuma Eleven football RPG franchise, Inazuma Eleven: Great Road. In the four-minute video, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino apologizes for the game’s extended delays while showing footage of it running on Nintendo Switch. The game is now planned for a 2023 release in Japan as a “culmination of the series”. It is being developed for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, iOS, and Android.
Inazuma Eleven: Great Road was originally set to be based on the Inazuma Eleven Ares animated series, but the game will now tell its own story and effectively act as a reboot. The game’s story will include elements from the first game, focusing primarily on the original Football Frontier tournament, but it will see characters from across the series — including Mamoru Endou and Tenma Matsukaze (Mark Evans and Arion Sherwind in English) — all coming from the same time period.
