The only football game we’re truly looking forward to this year finally has a release date.

Bandai Namco has announced that Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions will launch on 28th August for PS4, Switch and PC.

An arcade football game based on the legendary franchise, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions features over-the-top action. Players will be able to perform ludicrous special moves including gravity-defying shots, though they’ll need to be at the top their game to get one past the goalie as they’re also capable of pulling off breathtaking saves.


Bandai Namco has revealed that a Champions Edition of the game will be available exclusively via its online store, featuring everything in the Collector’s Edition – the game, a statue, embroidered badges, collectable cards, an artboard, the character pass, and bonus DLC – plus a customised Jersey. While the Collector’s Edition costs £129.99, the Champion Edition costs £149.99.

For those who have cash to burn, there’s going to be a Legend Edition, too. Also exclusive to the Bandai Namco store, it includes everything in the Champion Edition as well as a Captain Tsubasa table football table made by René Pierre. The price? A whopping £1,789.99. Whew!

The trailer below gives a taste of the entertaining action you can expect. It also features five iconic national teams: England, Italy, France, Netherlands, and Uruguay. Give it a watch.
