Inazuma Eleven
« on: February 23, 2014, 02:29:12 PM »
You know, "the soccer RPG" by Level-5 that came out in 2008 and, over the years, spawned a manga and anime series.  

It came out on the 3DS eShop about 10 days ago and was a complete surprise to me and pretty much everyone.  Is anyone else out there playing this?  I'm only dabbling with it a little bit since I'm pretty busy with life, but so far I'm enjoying it.  I never expected to see this baby actually drop in North America and am even more surprised that it just appeared with no fanfare.  Kind of a "surprise launch."  EDIT:  In a sea of "me too" JRPGs, this one does offer a unique flavor and I hope/wish more people knew about it. 

I know that the flavor of the month is Bravely Default, but surely someone else out there noticed Inazuma Eleven as well.

I want to play this. Sports RPGs are such a great idea, and I'll never forget the glory of Mario Golf RPG.
Friends, waffles, work. Or waffles, friends, work. Doesn't matter, but work is third.

Wasn't this released the same day they announced it was coming here?  I wish that happened more often.  I'm interested but when something is digital only I'm hesitant to buy right away.  $20 is a good price point though.

That's exactly what it reminds me of.

^ This. I'm interested and I'm a bigger fan of Level 5 than most, but don't have the time to play it right now with so many other games backlogged. Maybe one day.

I'm waiting for the DS versions of 1-3 to arrive from Zavvi.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

I have to go off topic for a moment because I'm currently replaying the Phoenix Wright games and so naturally I read that as "Zvarri"
