Earlier this year, Bandai Namco shared a Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions trailer that gave us a glimpse of the game's wild story mode. Much like this recent trailer, the story mode video shows off a variety of melodrama and super moves, from piercing falcon-like shots to locomotive-esque defensive abilities and more. We also had the opportunity to go hands-on with the game in January, playing as Nankatsu Middle School facing off against Toho Academy.

Captain Tsubasa was originally published in 1981 and ran for 37 volumes before getting picked up by Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1994. Since then, there have been several manga and anime adaptations, with the latest appearing in 2018 by director Toshiyuki Kato, writer Atsuhiro Tomioka, and licensor Viz Media.
