New details for the much delayed Inazuma Eleven Ares have been revealed, with the game boasting a “scout” system which lets players assemble their team from the various schools including Raimon Junior High School and Teikoku Academy.
The game will also purportedly feature a command battle system with high psychological warfare and action while lets players have a feel of a real football game although no further information was disclosed. In any case, there will be a presentation event taking place on 26 August 2018 for the game, so we may be getting an actual release then.
To recap, the game is being developed in such a way where even people who do not normally play football games can jump right in without much hassle. The developer promises that the strategic characteristics of football will be retained, yet it will also be accessible enough for anyone to pick up. In addition, Level-5 stated that the visuals will improve from what is being shown so far, although at the moment they are polishing the controls, which makes or breaks games like these. The ultimate goal is to have all characters who appear in the game be the exact replication of their anime counterparts. Inazuma Eleven Ares will be released in Japan during Summer 2018.
