    A First Look Tralier Inazuma Eleven

    Inazuma Eleven showcases how Japanese boys acquire thick British accents. Get ready to high score in this soccer RPG, due out on January 28 in Europe (aka the land of "football").

    Story.

    Those accents really took me by surprise, gonna take a while getting used to those and I live here

    The annoying football-knowledgeable Brit in me is begging to ask what the hell Euro Cup Season is, so better let him get it over with. As recompense, permission is granted to mock anything about NFL, ice hockey, baseball or such that I get wrong in future (Admittedly searches for Euro Cup do go to what I assume it to be referencing, I just never heard anyone ever call it that)

    When I was working in Disability Services, my co-worker loved soccer and he'd call things "Euro-Cup Season!" or "World Cup Season!" and I'd just giggle at him. I wrote that blurb for him since I know he reads the site. It was to tease him.

    Completely unexpected. Anyway, at the very least, the game's got great music by Yasunori Mitsuda.

    The Inazuma Eleven TV anime series has been dubbed in English, and broadcast in several nations. I don't know if that version includes genuine British accents...

    i've never dealt with international shipping that wasn't coming from the states (as I live in Canada). I wonder how much a customs fee would be for it...or Nintendo could just bring the dang thing over here. That would save a lot of problems.

    Here goes, bro.

    I'm a big soccer fan, so this game should be right up my alley, but that trailer tells me nothing about how the game actually plays . . . specifically, the actual soccer part of the game. Do you get to control players playing the soccer or is it more of a management-style game? And is it anything like bliztball from FFX? (I hated blitzball.) If so, I'd be less eager to import this game.

    it's... I'm trying to remember from the demo of Inazuma 2 that I played...

    There's direct player control, you can direct with the stylus (maybe the buttons too, but I don't remember/never tried), random battles are three-on-three scrimmages while boss matches are full team-on-team.

    I suppose comparisons could be made to Blitzball, but only in Inazuma's favor. It's much better.

    @Master Chief - I was aware that was what it was referring to, it's just the noone in their right mind would call it that here without being instantly heckled many times over

    It's unlikely to be widely available yet as they only pretty stealthily officially announced it yesterday with a release date of under 2 weeks away so stores haven't had much opportunity to go for stocking and pre-orders yet. Afraid I can't really help with stuff like customs fees and how much it'll be to send it over but things that have come the other way to me recently haven't had any. All I'll say is it'll be very difficult to send it slower than anything I've ordered from the US before

    Looking forward to this, last game I really played that had a proper RPG/sports feel was Mario Golf on the GBC (which was also great)

    I found it amusing that when I looked up Inazuma Eleven, amazon.co.uk had a notice that they had no idea when the game would be back in stock. What? lol

    Those probably also kill any chance of a North American release, as I'm assuming they refer to it as "football" and not "soccer" in this dub. The game would likely have to be dubbed again for American audiences if this is the case.

    Just started watching the subtitled anime with my 8 year old daughter. We love it. If I could find a British retailer with this, I might import this.
