Bandai Namco has announced Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions, an upcoming arcade football game based on the popular manga series.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions isn’t just a regular football game. True to the original manga, the matches you face here will be filled with stylish, over-the-top, entirely implausible trick shots that make it a hundred times more exhilarating.

Captain Tsubasa is finally coming to the West with Rise of New Champions, which is launching this year for PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and PC. Bandai Namco celebrated the announcement with an insane new trailer, and I dare you to name any other football game that features quite this many magical spirit animals.
