Captain Tsubasa: Rise Of New Champions Adds Three New Soccer Pros This Week

It's good to have goals.


Bandai Namco revealed a new trailer and screenshots for its soccer game Captain Tsubasa: Rise Of New Champions this week, highlighting new characters who'll be added to the game's roster.

Based on the classic manga and anime series created by Yōichi Takahashi, the first DLC for the game will add Swedish nobleman Stevan Levin, Mexican ace goalkeeper Ricardo Espadas, and martial arts striker Singprasert Bunnaak from Thailand.

Each character has their own set of flashy special moves, such as Bunnaak's Muay Thai-influenced kicks that can send a soccer ball hurtling at dangerous speeds or Espada's unbreakable defense in the goalkeeper's pit.

An upcoming patch will also add a new episode for the New Hero campaign, in which players can join the Otomo Middle School soccer team in a revenge match against their rivals, Nankatsu Middle School.

A new assist mode is also being added, while Versus and Online Versus mode will receive new balance changes.
