Inazuma Eleven 3DS game set for Q1 2014, according to listing.

Inazuma Eleven 1・2・3!! Endou Mamoru Densetsu

Inazuma Eleven—one of them, at least—is coming to 3DS in North America this year, according to Nintendo’s official website.

The release calendar page of the website lists an untitled Inazuma Eleven game for 3DS due out in the first quarter of the year.

Inazuma Eleven

Given that it’s not titled, it could be any one of the following:

  • Inazuma Eleven 3: Lightning Bolt / Bomb Blast / The Ogre (Japan: 07/10)
  • Inazuma Eleven GO (Japan: 12/11)
  • Inazuma Eleven GO 2: Chrono Stone Neppuu / Raimei (Japan: 12/12)
  • Inazuma Eleven 1・2・3!! Endou Mamoru Densetsu (Japan: 12/12)
  • Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy: Big Bang / Supernova (Japan: 12/13)

Inazuma Eleven 1・2・3 would make the most sense, I think, given there hasn’t been an Inazuma Eleven game localized for North America yet. It is a compilation of the first three games, the first two of which were released on DS. And all three have already been localized in English, since they were released in Europe.

Then again, this could just be an error by Nintendo of America.

Thanks, NeoGAF.

    YES!

    Oh, how I’ve waited. Hopefully, it’ll be 123. Anything else would be pretty dumb.

  • Jesse

    Hopefully, for any Inazuma Eleven fans, this will be correct.

  • Budgiecat

  • Lalum

    If it is 1+2+3 I hope they don’t pull some bullshit and only give us 1.

  • SerendipityX

    I was wondering what else they were going to release since they pretty much threw everything out there in 2013.

    It’s going to take me some time to get through the slew of recently released and upcoming 3DS games that I want to play, but, aw, go on, you’ve twisted my arm Nintendo. Let’s have some footy RPG goodness on top of that.

  • OverlordZetta

    Maybe Danball Senki can come too? Please?

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      That would be the best. And maybe Youkai Watch too.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        but kids mecha definitely didn’t do well in US like medarot or another

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          But… niche fans… :(

  • PrinceHeir

    nicee!

  • TheGameTagerZ

    Not too crazy about this. Personally like the newer series Chrono Stone and Go Galaxy. Maybe if this sells well we can see these here.

  • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

    Probably… a mistake.

  • MosquitoLemon

    Cautiously optimistic… this is my favorite game franchise as of late. Granted I have played through 1,2,3, in JP and 1,2 EU, but I’d throw down $40 just to play 3 again.

  • PrinceHeir
    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Not a confirmation.

    • Solomon_Kano

      That article’s talking about the same spot on Nintendo’s site that this one is. From the same GAF post, no less.

  • Renaldi Saputra

    the anime IIRC didn’t do well in US

    • http://twitter.com/GNPixie Lynx

      I don’t even think it aired in the US.

      It sure as hell didn’t air up here in Canada.

      • Renaldi Saputra

        I see, maybe they should made it to South America exclusively, bcos there’re a bunch of Inazuma fans

        ah man, they’d better bring Re:Digitize Decode ASAP

  • DarthBrian

    WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA—? O_O

  • Wolf Star

    What the hell is inazuma eleven?? I never heard of it.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      An… odd soccer rpg game from the lovely Level-5.

      • Wolf Star

        Oh sports game with RPG.. “Meh”

        • Renaldi Saputra

          well, maybe this isn’t a game for a not fanatic soccer especially soccer anime fans..

          • Wolf Star

            I’m not into sports games.. sorry. Even if it’s with anime sports. It’s the same thing..

            • Renaldi Saputra

              I see

              • Wolf Star

                Wait is level 5 going to be involved with this??

                • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                  Yes, they are the makers.

                  • Wolf Star

                    Ok then nevermind, I think it’s might be a good game. Anything with level 5 is awesome :D

                    • Renaldi Saputra

                      I lol’d at you

                    • Wolf Star

                      lool xD

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Heh well… that isn’t completely true. PL7 is going to suck. As is Wonder Flick.

                    • Wolf Star

                      What’s PL7?? lol

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Professor Layton 7 that is not really a Layton game at all.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Oh, yeah there’s a lot of prequels for that game and I just stopped paying attention to it after the 3rd game. (Well 4th game)

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      I have played 1-5. I pre-ordered 6. But 7 is a huge departure.

                    • Wolf Star

                      I heard 7 is the last game in the series. Soo is it really that bad?

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Where did you hear 7 is the last one? o.o It isn’t so much that it is bad… but it is completely different and doesn’t even seem to feature Hershel.

                    • Wolf Star

                      http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=LjEbeQlwldc
                      Watch this :P also it’s on the Internet about it’s the last game in the series. Different really?? :)

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Nah not watching that. But internet? Not reliable.

                    • Wolf Star
                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Mobile! Evil! Anyways ok. Azran is #6. #7 is the different one.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Haha ok :) why not watch the video?? :/

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Lazy.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Ok lol it’s still last professor Layton game :) I really don’t know why they made prequels a trilogy. (Idk if the movie counts)

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Azran is the last real game yes. And the movie does count. There is also a second movie coming out too. But there is a 7th game which means it is not the last one. I doubt they will end the series, it makes them too much money.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Ok and ohh I didn’t know there is a 2nd movie coming out.. Well they said it’s the last time we will see Hershel soo it’s his last game.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      Indeed Hershel’s last game. Which is why 7 is going to be so different, or at least one reason.

                    • Wolf Star

                      I wonder how the game is going to end?? will it be another cliff hanger that will lead up to the 1st game?? or something like that?? idk

                    • Wolf Star

                      At least this game is coming out soon. Also it looks good :)

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      It looks heavenly! When does it come out? Do you know? I need to pre-order it too. O.O

                    • Wolf Star

                      http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=5f9K5yaWsBA
                      Here’s the trailer :D and also so far the game should be coming early 2014. also you can preorder it :)

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      “Early” >_>

                    • Wolf Star

                      Well Europe is getting it in March 2014.

                    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

                      So April or May for the US.

                    • Wolf Star

                      Maybe?? It says 2014. :P

                • Renaldi Saputra

                  they’re a part of level5

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Eh I haven’t ever played them so I cannot vouch for it but it sounds interesting to me and it is L5 so it has to be good.

        • Budgiecat

          Its better than Blitzball…

          • Wolf Star

            True lol

    • Renaldi Saputra

      a soccer series which is quite similar to Captain Tsubasa, only with more hissatsu waza and more action-ish..

  • Audie Bakerson

    Wonder if they will change references to football back to サッカー/soccer or leave the translation intact.

    Hell, they could pull of Days of Ruin and have their own completely original translation from scratch.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      They’d change it to soccer.

    • Budgiecat

      American football shouldn’t even be called football. You barely use your feet lol. It should be called Tackleball.

      • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

        Are you not American?

        • Budgiecat

          I am

  • Learii

    make a trilogy for us

  • Elvick

    Trilogy makes most sense to me. And I hope it’s that. Since I haven’t played them. And I hope it’s retail.

  • JonathanisPrimus

    Watch it be an eShop only release of the 3DS port of just the first game. In my bones I feel like that’s exactly what will happen.

    • Elvick

      If it’s that, then it’d be such a fail that I would laugh my ass off. Rather than be mad about it. The hilarity of it would overpower any other feeling.

    • Silver Citizen

      It’d be a start!

  • Pyrofrost

    Personally, I don’t like sports themed games at all; but, I love Level 5, so, I’m willing to give this a chance. Hopefully it doesn’t turn out to be a mistake.

  • http://www.shonengamez.com/ Kaitou

    I have Inazuma Shine, Neppu, and Big Bang/SuperNova on my Japanese 3DS. Would love to see these get ported here.

    • Kirin Minh

      can you play the game in Rnglish or Japanese only?

  • Pyrofrost

    I absolutely hate sports themed games; BUT, since I adore Level 5, I will be willing to give this an honest shot.

    Hopefully this is not a mistake on NoA’s part.

    • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

      Why hope for it to be a mistake?

      • Pyrofrost

        That’s a typo, I’ll edit that.

        • http://www.cubiz.tk/ Auragar

          Oh. Heheh. Ok. :3

  • Mugiwara

    Do you hate soccer? Play Inazuma Eleven, you will love it, like me! It’s like playing soccer with Dragon Ball powers, Saint Seiya’s Armors and Aliens.
