Video: If Inazuma Eleven Football Was Real, Costs Would be Astronomical

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Footballs and pitches going up in flames

While the franchise is big business for Level-5 in Japan, Inazuma Eleven has had limited localisations in Europe and none in North America, earning loyal fans without necessarily troubling the upper-reaches of software charts. Europe will have its next dose of Inazuma Eleven goodness on 27th September, with the arrival of the 3DS versions of Inazuma Eleven 3: Lightning Bolt and Inazuma Eleven 3: Bomb Blast.

Originally released on DS in Japan, the move to the 3DS versions is unsurprising as these games — each a variation on the same core Inazuma Eleven 3 experience — finally come West. Ahead of their upcoming arrival, Nintendo UK has produced a series of snapshot TV trailers to show off the crazy moves and sequences that have come to characterise the franchise.

As you can see, it's just as well that bonkers video game rules don't apply in real football, as groundsman would have a little too much to deal with.

Looks good. The first was fun but far too easy, haven't played the second yet. I might skip this one and wait for GO though.

It took me quite a while to get into the first game. For ages I couldn't even score a goal, but then most of the game was pretty easy... apart from the last game. I had to grind up a ton of levels before being good enough to win that.

Those games look incredible! How come there's never been an Inazuma Eleven game available in Australia? :(

I totally forgot this was coming out! I'll definitely pick up Lightning Bolt when I can. I absolutely love the handheld Inazuma games, they're amazing! & I don't even like soccer haha
