Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions Gets PS4, Switch, and PC Release Date

Bandai Namco announced that the Tamsoft-developed over-the-top soccer title, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions, will launch on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC-via Steam on August 28.

To celebrate the announcement, the publisher has released a new gameplay trailer that highlights the game’s features. Viewers get a preview of the arcadey soccer action that awaits them as the trailer highlights special shots, aerial battles, and saves.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is based on the works of series creator, Yoichi Takahashi, and follows Tsubasa Ozora as he steps up as the leader of his soccer team and brings them to glory. The game introduces players to soccer with an anime twist as players are able to execute a variety of powerful offensive and defensive moves during matches against rival teams.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions will feature Japanese voice-over with text support for English, Neutral-Spanish, and Brazilian Portuguese. The last console game to release for the series was in 2010 on DS with Captain Tsubasa: Gekito no Kiseki, but the game hasn’t received a numbered entry since Captain Tsubasa 5: Hasha no Shōgō Campione, which released in 1994 from developer Tecmo.
