Level-5 says they're prioritizing development of Yo-kai Watch Jam: Yo-kai Academy Y over Inazuma Eleven: Heroes' Great Road

Kicked to the curb

We have some bad news to share with fans of the Inazuma Eleven franchise. It seems that Level-5 is putting that game on the backburner for a bit to focus on the world of Yo-Kai Watch.

Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino took to Twitter to share a message about Inazuma Eleven: Heroes' Great Road, the next Inazuma Eleven game. It seems we'll have to wait quite a bit to see what's going on with that game, as Level-5 is shifting their focus for the time being. Check out Mr. Hino's message below.

Pardon the sudden message, but for business purposes we have prioritized the development of Yo-kai Academy Y over Inazuma Eleven: Great Road of Heroes. Currently, discussion on the groundwork needed to make [Inazuma Eleven] a hit title is required, so that game development may be allowed to continue. We’re putting all our efforts into making it a good game. Please forgive us for the long wait.

Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy gets an English fan translation

Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy released for the 3DS back in 2013, but that was only in Japan. Level-5 never bothered to localize the game for other regions, which is why fans stepped in to do the work.

After 7 years of waiting, fans of the Inazuma Eleven series can finally experience Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy in English. This includes both titles, which were named Big Bang and Supernova. There's no telling if Level-5 will swoop in so squash this fan-translation, but hopefully all the work these fans did doesn't get deleted in a matter of days.

Inazuma Eleven: Heroes' Great Road may see yet another delay

Delay of game

Level-5 seems to be having a really tough time with Inazuma Eleven: Heroes' Great Road. The game has suffered setback after setback, and it appears another one might be on the way. While Level-5 hasn't said anything just yet, the official website has had a bit of a date change. The site recently stated the game would hit in Spring 2020, but for whatever reason, any mention of Spring has been removed. The site now simply states a 2020 release.

Inazuma Eleven Ares no more, Inazuma Eleven Heroes: Great Road coming Spring 2020 in Japan


Today, the final episode of the Inazuma Eleven: Orion no Kokuin anime aired in Japan. The big disappointing factor is that the Inazuma Eleven Ares game hasn't been released yet. Akihiro Hino, the CEO of Level-5, has recognized this in a Japanese blog post.

As mentioned in December 2018, Level-5 relied on an external studio for the development of Inazuma Eleven Ares. While a great part was still being made in-house, the structure created problems nonetheless. This has caused Level-5 to move work in-house fully, and review various aspects of the game including match play.

In today's announcement, Hino has revealed that the game we know as Inazuma Eleven Ares is no more. Instead, the title will live on as Inazuma Eleven Heroes: Great Road. It will still offer Ares related story offerings, but the game now also includes an ''Alpha Episode''. This inclusion will bring back characters from the older Inazuma Eleven series.

Interestingly, Hino has referred to Great Road as a brand new game. In addition, the game will now be coming out in Spring 2020. Hino promised that players will get to enjoy a high degree of freedom, and can use the controller to position players on the field. It will be a brand new kind of Role Playing Game, where players can gather athletes and take part is various matches. Great Road will offer a deep online experience, even allowing for national tournaments to be held.
