Level 5 has released new gameplay footage of its forthcoming Inazuma Eleven sequel, subtitled Balance of Ares.

The franchise began life on the Nintendo DS before leaping over to the 3DS. Balance of Ares is coming to Switch, PlayStation 4 and smart devices this year in Japan, and will be accompanied by an anime series - the trailer for which is also included below.

As you can see from the new gameplay trailer, the franchise massively benefits from the increased power of the hardware, making those one-on-one encounters all the more dramatic.
