Level-5 president and CEO Akihiro Hino has taken to Twitter to tease the next Inazuma Eleven game.
First, some (recent) history. Back in March, Hino teased on Twitter, “Now, turning towards Level-5 Vision 2016, we’re working on a number of new anime and games. Look forward to it! I want as many people as possible to come see. Of course, there is also that new title. I… (it’s still to early to say the rest).”
What’s pictured is a character, seemingly from a new Inazuma Eleven game, whose name appears to be Ryousuke Haisaki (灰崎凌典).
Finally, Hino followed up with: “We are returning to I‘s origin this time, it’s completely, straight up, hot-blooded. No avatars, no time limits (it’s nothing to laugh about, seriously! lol), there will be new challenges, and I think you’ll be surprised. Look forward to it! Oh and also, I think it goes without saying, this isn’t a pro league story.”
Level-5 held its Level-5 Vision press conference in April last year and in August the year prior (2013, they didn’t hold Level-5 Vision in 2014). A date for this year’s conference has yet to be announced.
