Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is the wild and hyper-stylised sports game I've been craving for over a decade. The gameplay is quick to pick up, but hard to master, and the over-the-top anime transitions and animations that are sprinkled throughout the action make it endlessly entertaining. Offline and online versus is sure to give you hours of entertainment if you're the competitive type, while the hefty amount of single-player story content can keep you just as equally entertained. Anyone who's been waiting for the next great arcade sports game need not look any further – it's here, and its name is Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions.

Rise of New Champions is a great anime adaptation. A fast and spectacular soccer arcade, with every player and special move from Captain Tsubasa, and two single player story modes that deepen the experience.

A good representation of Captain Tsubasa's soccer style. Very spectacular at times, but very tedious at others due to the limitation of its mechanics.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of the New Champions is a heartful love letter to the masterpiece of Yoichi Takahashi. Despite some flaws, such as a very clumsy progression system and some naive design choces, the game is fun to play, it feels like to be in the anime series, has a great potential online and the chance to create custom team and custom players is fan service at its best.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is a very primitive arcade soccer game with RPG elements based on the popular manga. Like many other projects based on anime and manga from Bandai Namco, it is made for inexperienced casual players, so there is no deep gameplay or any other interesting mechanics. Although if you are a big fan of Captain Tsubasa manga, you can add a few points from yourself to the final score.

Captain Tsubasa has genuine depth behind its arcade flair, but the initial presentation leaves a lot to be desired thanks to a dull, aggravating, and sluggish introduction to its characters and systems.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is a bit like when you fancy watching a game of footy but there's only the Scottish league on the telly. Sure, it looks like football to the untrained eye, and yes, occasionally it's entertaining just like real football, but you're mainly there hoping that someone is going to get chinned.
