Let’s face it…Soccer isn’t a very popular sport in North America. Bringing a game like Inazuma Eleven to the states is a pretty risky outing. That’s not to say it couldn’t work…it just needs the right attention.
The good news is, it appears that Level-5 is at least considering the idea. Recently a trademark was filed for Inazuma Eleven, as pertaining to video games. Nothing related to the animated series just yet, but I personally think the TV show is a key component in getting gamers interested. I can also see how that would be a tough sell.
