Inazuma Eleven Compilation Kicking Off on 3DS

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Europe may get it this decade

For European fans of the Inazuma Eleven franchise it's been a slow process to get hold of the first two DS titles, especially considering the fact that Japan is already into a 3DS spin-off series; North American soccer fans have been completely deprived. If you're in Japan, however, there's almost too much crazy super-charged RPG football action to handle, with confirmation that Inazuma Eleven 1,2,3: Legend of Mamoru Endo, a compilation of the first three DS titles (or six if you count each version), is on the way to 3DS on 15th November.

As reported by Andriasang, the compilation will feature improved visuals to accommodate the higher resolution on 3DS, as well as stereoscopic 3D effects. Japanese gamers that pick up 3DS exclusive Inazuma Eleven Go 2 will also be able to take advantage of connectivity between the games, though no further details on that have been confirmed.

Will Europe get a version of this? It's possible, as the first two titles have already arrived, while we're still waiting for the third to hopefully be translated and released. As for North America, based on previous examples we're not very hopeful.

I've never played a game in the series, but it does look intriguing.
If they release this in Europe I'll certainly have to consider it.

I won't buy this, because I'm not a fan of the series.
But maybe my liitle brother will want it.

I know, there's so many Inazuma Eleven games out now, its insane. Its one of the new big franchises. I'm just constantly seeing t-shirts and toys and all sorts of stuff for it. The only time I played it is the version that was released as a side-game in the 2nd Layton game.

Hopefully this will come to North America, so we get the previous games for the first time.

I've read that it contains all the different versions of the sequel and IE3. I assume you can 100% each version with just the collection which would be great.
Would be hard to resist if it comes to Europe.

Finished the original DS outing last week and am about to finish the entire 127 episodes anime in the next few days. I must say I became quite a fan of the series now (which is odd because I don't rally follow football IRL at all). Looking really forward the Wii Strikers game coming in September and really, REALLY hope this 3DS compilation makes it tot he west, that's a lot of content in a single 3DS cart!

Only played the first, was waiting for 2 to drop in price, but I may wait for this. I'll have Strikers to keep me interested, anyway.

I've played a copy of it and it really is a great hybridization of soccer and rpg. It has a bit of pokemon thing going on in that you are constantly trying to recruit new players and each player has his/her own strengths and weaknesses as well as well as over the top abilities.

I really hope that a 3DS iteration of the series comes to America.

I think that the second Inazuma eleven game came faaar to quick (only a few months) after the first one! It showed that Nintendo really doesn't know anything about timing!!

Anyway, I didn't buy the second one because the first one has yet to click with me (I have to get used to the controls). However, the Wii game could still be fun for me. Different controls, I guess!

Oh man, this is a chance for them to make good and put this out here! There's an anime right? Dub the hell out of that, put it on Cartoon Network, release this game, and monies will be made.

I don't care for soccer at all (or any sport for that matter really) but I absolutely loved the Inazuma Eleven games they've released & would certainly get this if they released it in my region, especially to be able to play the 3rd Inazuma Eleven & the other's with updated graphics :D

I have the first,and while I haven't got far into it,I've pretty enjoyed my time with it.
I still want to get the second one,though.

Please come to the UK,though.

eh... i've lost all hope of this making it to the US. Unless the american soccer/football team can conjure up a bunch of band wagoners (mostly being kids), then this isn't gunna ever see the light of day over here

i'm getting tired of these region specific games for the 3ds. I can understand how Japan gets everything first but this is spinning outta control. It isn't fair how North America and Europe gets screwed outta alot games. Why can't they just change the Language settings to English and put the games out? As you can tell... I'm one of the many gamers who is mad that Pokemon Black 2 comes out in October for America.
