Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions

Bandai Namco has detailed Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions mode “Episode: New Hero,” which lets you build friendships with your favorite characters, learn new skills, and experience “dramatic stories.”

Get the details below.

In Episode “New Hero,” you will have the option to create your very own character and join one of three prestigious middle schools known for their talented teams with key strengths:

  • Furano Middle School of Hokkaido – Known to have the best teamwork in Japan.
  • Toho Academy in Tokyo – A top-class academy in Japan.
  • Musashi Middle School – Led by the talented Jun Misugi.

Once you’ve created an avatar in your likeness and picked a club, your aim will be to defeat Tsubasa Ozora’s team, Nankatsu Middle School, and compete to join the New Hero League!

The New Hero League

After the national tournament, players were about to leave their school team when they heard about an unexpected tournament—the New Hero League: this competition was going to be held to select the best players for Japan’s All Star Team, as the International Junior Youth Tournament was cancelled.

Get ready to experience dramatic stories and different outcomes depending on the school you choose, and build friendships with your favorite players to increase your “friend rank!”

By bonding with a specific character above a certain level, you may even acquire the character’s unique skill and special move.

Forging close friendships with your team members will help stack the odds in your favor to defeat your rivals!

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam in 2020. Read more about the game here and here.
