Captain Tsubasa: Rise Of The Champions will allow you to feel the rush of defeating real human opponents in the newly unveiled online modes. A brief blog post on Bandai Namco’s website has the details. After creating a new character in EPISODE: NEW HERO, you’ll be able to take that new avatar to create a dream team of your own. You can use that team to compete against other players in division matches, but you’ll also be able to have 1 vs 1 or 2 vs 2 matches for your custom or original teams.
During the Bandai Namco’s Play Anime Live 2020 event, the company announced that Captain Tsubasa: Rise of the Champions is the first anime sports game it has brought to the West. It’s a big deal for them. The story follows Tsubasa Ozora as he competes in the soccer leagues and rises to the top.
Check out the trailer to see the online modes, and you can play the game when it scores a release on August 28th.

Jason became terminally addicted to videogames after receiving the NES at an early age. This addiction grew to include PC gaming and was cemented with the launch of the PS2. From then on, he was afflicted with epic RPGs, tense shooters, and deep strategy games, never becoming skillful, but never able to quit. He continues to play games (poorly) and share his passion for them to anyone willing to listen.
