European 3DS gamers will have a lot of games coming in their countries in the next few months as Nintendo as announced quite a few new games and release dates. Together with Fire Emblem: Awakening, Code Of Princess and Etrian Odyssey 4, Inazuma Eleven 3 will launch in Europe this summer on 3DS.
The Inazuma Eleven series has been mildly successful in Europe, with two of the three DS games being officially released and localized in many different languages,as well as the Wii action spin off and the accompanying anime series. Inazuma Eleven 3 was originally released on the DS with two different versions, just like the previous entries of the series: like the Pokemon games, the only difference is in the characters which can be recruited for your team, with minimal plot differences.
All the three DS games, together with a spin off based on the animated movie “The Ogre” have been recently released in a compilation in Japan for 3DS, with slightly upgraded graphics, 3D support and some small gameplay tweaks: even though Nintendo and Level 5 haven’t specified, the version included in this collection is probably the one getting released in Europe.
Inazuma Eleven 3 will be released in two different versions, called Spark & Bomber this summer on 3DS. No news on a North American release: chances are slim since the two DS games weren’t released over there.
