The worlds of Soccer and Anime converge in Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions, based on the renowned Captain Tsubasa series. The game chronicles the athletic exploits of Tsubasa Ozora as he plays out his love for the game and advances through the ranks of multiple Soccer leagues. Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions PC immerses players in an action packed soccer game that features exhilarating gameplay, over the top signature shots and accessible gameplay.
Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is also available on PS4.
In the name of accessibility, fun and a competitive spirit, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions brings coin-op football back to life, embellished with that incredible array of techniques, moves and specials that have always characterized the saga. A much needed breath of fresh air.
Captain Tsubasa is not a game for everyone who loves football in the real world. It gives more importance to fan service than actual gameplay, fortunately without falling into gross mistakes.
It's very easy to see Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions being a love-it-or-hate-it kind of game. It's a fun representation of the insane, over-the-top action of a sports anime, but it's not a very good soccer game. Despite having multiplayer modes, it's unlikely to hold your attention unless you're deep into building up perfect teams of talented misfits. Still, fans of the anime should enjoy it, and newcomers wondering about Tsubasa will probably find it to be a fine introduction to the franchise.
It's a great option for players who want to enter Tsubasa’s world. It may not satisfy more serious football fans, but gamers looking for a nice arcade football game should definitely give it a try.
Generous in terms of fan service, equipped with complementary scripted modes and gameplay ideas that blend well with the style of the original work, Rise of New Champions is a good Captain Tsubasa game, but in some ways it forgets to be a good soccer game.
Even with the over-zealous use of effects and seemingly-obligated need to snapshot every significant moment mid-game, Tsubasa understands that to truly craft an entertaining sports title, it has to convince its players that the depth it houses is worthwhile. But much like the lofty heights of the best PES iterations, the game nails the tenuous, juggling of emotions that soccer can bring. Crafting on top two solid (if a touch slap-dash on presentation) story campaigns, that have all the trappings of some of the best and most resonating of emergent gameplay. I sincerely hope these issues are rectified sooner rather than later — Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is an unabashed yet joyous rendition on what makes soccer games so good.
