The upcoming video game Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road of Heroes (formerly known as Inazuma Eleven: Heroes’ Great Road) has received another glimpse from Level-5 just weeks after the World Cup.
A new character is showcased in the most recent teaser artwork. Although his identity hasn’t been made public just yet, he is reportedly a very talented player who will be significant to the game’s plot. CEO of Level-5 Akihiro Hino added the following:
“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.”
The business has also released a new trailer, which highlights some of the previously described gameplay and concepts.
In slightly related news, Akihiro Hino recently discussed Level-5’s next year with the Japanese journal Famitsu and teased “several new titles” to commemorate the company’s 25th anniversary.
“LEVEL-5 will celebrate its 25th anniversary. In 2022, I feel like I personally put my heart and soul into Megaton Musashi, but in 2023, we will announce many new titles, so I hope to make an even bigger impact as a company. I’m going to do my best with the mentality of ‘Making our presence known going forward.’”
In February 2023, more information about this planned book will be released. What are your initial thoughts on the new Switch Inazuma Eleven game? In 2023, what do you hope to see from Level-5?
