LEVEL-5 released new gameplay footage of Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road of Heroes highlighting mechanics and the soccer game system. The company also released new artwork and confirmed that more news is coming in early 2023.
The new artwork depicts a character that has not appeared in prior Inazuma Eleven works. Details about the new character are scarce at the moment, but LEVEL-5 promises that the character is an extremely talented soccer player. The company made adjustments to the overall story to incorporate him into the mix.
“While creating the scenario for Megaton Musashi, I thought that the ensemble cast structure of storytelling was a great match for games and anime with a large number of characters,” LEVEL-5 CEO Akihiro Hino said in a new blog post. “So for this Inazuma Eleven, we reconstructed the story to simultaneously depict protagonist Unmei’s rise from the bottom to success, and the agony of those already at the top from different perspectives.”
LEVEL-5 plans to share more information about Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road of Heroes in February 2023. More details about the story, game mechanics, characters, and animations will be revealed.
