The original world-renowned soccer RPG Inazuma Eleven is now available for digital download!

Nobody loves soccer like Mark Evans. As captain of the Raimon Junior High soccer club, he dreams of taking his team to the top and winning the legendary Soccer Frontier championship. Unfortunately for him, nobody else in the club shares his passion… until they’re thrown into a match against the elite Royal Academy for the club’s survival. It seems the only way Raimon will stand a chance is if Mark can convince new transfer student and ace striker Axel Blaze to come out of his mysterious early retirement…

Train your team, find items, and level up; then take to the field for some tactical soccer action. The more soccer battles you win, the more special moves you’ll learn, and the stronger your team will be!

Take on fierce opponents in eleven-on-eleven soccer matches!

Field over 1000 potential recruits to craft your custom team and challenge your friends via local wireless play!
