Nintendo have announced Inazuma Eleven GO: Light and Inazuma Eleven GO: Shadow, are both launching for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS on 13th June.
Set ten years after the events of Inazuma Eleven 3, both Inazuma Eleven GO: Light and Inazuma Eleven GO: Shadow storylines kick off the tale of the young but talented Arion Sherwind as he begins his football career during hard times for Raimon Junior High. While Sherwind’s initial goal is simply to break into a formidable first team captained by the virtuoso player, Riccardo Di Rigo, bigger problems soon come to pass when the whole team is threatened with closure on the orders of Fifth Sector, a shadowy football governing body intent on controlling the ‘beautiful game’. With Raimon in disarray, and a mysterious new player named Victor Blade causing unrest in the team, don’t be surprised to see a certain legendary goalie turning up to become the new coach in the team’s time of need.
As the story progresses, while new players can join your roster after victories on the field, players can now also be recruited using PalPack cards, which can be obtained in-game and allow certain characters to be unlocked once specific conditions in-game are met. Alternatively, new characters, special moves and Fighting Spirits will become available to receive via the internet after launch. With further game features such as Local Play functionality allowing up to four players to compete together, and StreetPass Challenges which allow fellow players to exchange information and take on each other’s teams, there’ll be plenty of opportunities to get to know your strongest line-up!
