Captain Tsubasa is getting a new mobile game for iOS and Android

Olive and Tom have never been so successful in the small world of video games. The anime “Captain Tsubasa” will be honored as a new adaptation of the video game aimed at the mobile market. It’s the turn of Japanese smartphone gaming giant DeNA to take to the grass with Captain Tsubasa: Ace, a new competitive multiplayer game for iOS and Android devices whose trailer was released today.


Captain Tsubasa: Ace Warms Up With Announcement Trailer

As of now, no specific gameplay image has been shown in this first trailer. However, Captain Tsubasa: Ace promises to follow the original framework of the cult anime, with “multiple game modes” and “all the fantastic tricks” that make it the only mangaka in Yoichi Takahashi’s universe. If we don’t yet know what kind of gameplay will be based on this new adaptation, DeNA nonetheless guarantees that it will be about “real-time combat mode” football, combining all the offensive and defensive techniques on the ground. The release date has not yet been announced.

This is not the first DeNA sports manga to be adapted into a video game format. In 2018, the Japanese group has already joined another big name from the pages of Shonen Jump magazine with the basketball manga Slam Dunk, adapting Takahashi Inoue’s universe in chibi or super deformed scale. Particularly active in the Asian market, DeNA is best known for having collaborated with Nintendo many times on numerous mobile titles such as Super Mario Run, Mario Kart Tour and Fire Emblem Heroes.

Thus, Captain Tsubasa: Ace could be the successor to Captain Tsubasa: Dream Team, the only mobile adaptation of the manga currently active. Launched in 2017, the game offers players the chance to collect many characters from the manga to create the top 11 on the field. However, after 6 years of activity, the Dream Team is starting to show its age. Then the launch of Ace brought the franchise to life on mobile devices.
