Meet Leonardo Rusciano and Gino Hernandez.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions

Bandai Namco has released a new trailer for Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions introducing Italian Junior Youth characters Leonardo Rusciano and Gino Hernandez.

Here is an overview of the team and its players, via Bandai Namco:

Italian Junior Youth

A team that is said to have the best defense in this championship, symbolised by goalkeeper Hernandez. This team aims to stand on top of the world by enhancing the long-established ‘counterattack football’, adding new members to support the offence, which tended to be insufficient.

  • Leonardo Rusciano – A forward for the Italian Junior Youth team. His personality is a bit problematic, but he has great offensive talent. He can counterattack single-handedly.
  • Gino Hernandez – A goalkeeper and the captain of the Italian Junior Youth team. He is a ‘Perfect Keeper’ who let in no goals for an entire year by blocking opponent shots with his “Golden Right Hand.”

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is due out worldwide for PlayStation 4, Switch, and PC via Steam on August 28. Read more about the game here, here, and here.
