Captain Tsubasa is a manga series that has entertained the football fans for years. It was created in 1981 by Yƍichi Takahashi and since then it follows the story of Tsubasa Ozora, a young football player who joins a club in Japan. The franchise already has plenty of games but Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions promises to bring “fresh air to the football genre” with gameplay featuring lots of action and the wild shots on goal that made the franchise so famous all over the world.

With anime-like graphics, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions will feature the most popular characters in the series, including Tsubasa Ozora, Kojiro Hyuga, Genzo Wakabayashi, Taro Misaki, Jun Misugi or Hikaru Matsuyama, but also some others that are yet to be confirmed.

As an arcade football game, you are not to expect the type of gameplay that you would find on some of the most popular football series, like FIFA or Pro Evolution Soccer. Instead, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions adapts mechanics from the arcade football genre to deliver fast-paced gameplay and plenty of action. You will be able to execute amazing shots on goal through the use of skills, perfectly representing what the fans love from the manga series.

Up to four different players will be able to play Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions together, so it will be a very appropriate game to have a great evening with your friends. It has not been specified yet if the multiplayer modes will include online or be restricted to local, but we expect that both of the options will be present.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions will launch in 2020 for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC, and although no release date has been confirmed so far, we hope to be able to enjoy the game as soon as possible.
