DS | Inazuma Eleven
Release: Unknown
Publisher/Developer: Level-5
- soccer-themed RPG
- characters are anime-like with insane special attacks
- matches are played with touchpen
- in story mode you play a scout
- to dribble you draw an arrow in the direction you want to play
- to pass you touch the player you want to pass to
- to shoot, you touch the goal and you can also decide to shoot left or right
- when dribbling, you can touch other players, or you can hit people who have the ball, this takes you into a "command battle" where two commands are displayed on the bottom screen
- over 1000 characters who can be your ally
- versus and swapping possible with wireless play


as a big soccer fan, I have to say, I'm intrigued.

The 3rd and fourth RPGS better be for Sony (PS3/PSP), and one of them had better be Dark CLoud.

Why develop for a dying handheld and a too a expensive console?

Level 5 doesn't have the money to flush down those toilets.

Stupidity at it's finest. You sir are an example to all of them.

Dying handheld-hardly, it always ranks 3rd in sales in just about every region.

PS3 isn't too expensive, otherwise Sony would be making money on each sold.

The software sales are in the toilet. Most Japanese buy it for gay pron umds, Americans buy it to illegally emulate nes games.

PS3 is expensive from the consumer viewpoint.

You have no idea when Luminous Arc game out in Japan. A good ds developer can crank out games in a fast fashion especially when they get the expierence down pat.

I actually think Level-5's Soccer RPG looks kind of cool!

But I doubt it will ever come to the states. :(

You should hardly be able to criticize someone for being "stupid" when you don't even have your facts straight.

As it's NOT a dying handheld (true statement by you), the PSP is failing miserably to the DS in sales, and Sony knows this. It's why the price has dropped - which means Sony isn't making as much as they initially wanted. And as for the "3rd" in ranking, the PSP might be 3rd or 4th, depending on PS2 sales, but it's numbers in comparison to Nintendo DS and the Wii are dwarfed. It's not even a competition.

And the PS3 obviously had to be too expensive, or why else would Sony's numbers be wretched for the system AND had to price drop in less than a year of releasing the system? Nintendo has never had to drop the DS price since its release, and the Wii could honestly go up in price and people would still buy it. It's all about marketing, and Sony has not done a great job of it this term.

And speaking of RPGs that Sony won't be getting, Nintendo just got exclusive rights to the next Kingdom Hearts. Way to go again, Sony. Losing more exclusives.

(And by the way, I don't "bash" the PSP. I have one. I just don't play it nearly as much as my DS.)

Since they're Japanese sources, I'd expect Japan.

We have known the game to be coming for quite a while. Antipation tends to die with such foreknowledge.The first is hitting the shores of the US this year I think.

It doesn't matter how well it sells when the software sales are absolutely horrible. For a console that sold 25 million it sure doesn't have enough games on the NPD top 20 list every month and doesn't even make a blink on the Japanese Media Create sales.
