Did Level-5’s CEO tease Inazuma Eleven Ares for Switch?

Posted on August 19, 2017 by (@NE_Brian) in News, Switch

Inazuma Eleven Ares was announced during the Level-5 Vision event last year. Since then, we haven’t seen too much of the project. Level-5 has been hosting semi-regular Inazuma Walker live streams, but we really haven’t seen much, especially when it comes to the upcoming game.

Level-5 did host another live stream earlier today. The big news is that the anime has been pushed back to Spring 2018. Originally, it was planned for this summer before being officially announced for October.

Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino also briefly talked about the Inazuma Eleven Ares game towards the end of the stream. In an exchange with the show’s MC, Hino seemed to hint that it will be on the Switch.

Here’s the basic exchange between the two:

MC: People are asking which console it will be released for.

Hino: Well, no one would thought it will be 3DS after they saw the footage we showed on the last stream.

MC: Please also release it for 3DS.

Hino: No no no no… Sw….

MC: Swi….I will buy whatever console you’ll release [Inazuma Eleven] on. But currently it’s really difficult to buy a Switch, so…

Hino: What? Who said it is for Switch?

The next Inazuma Walker live stream will be hosted on October 21. It looks like Level-5 will have something to say about the new game then.

    Still waiting for Eyeshield 21 same kind of style but with football, been wishing and hoping for years.

      Too bad the series is dead. It has a good gaming potential.

    • Shonenfan

      The wii one realy was fun. But a rpg style eyeshield 21 seems to be lot better idea!


    Assuming Level 5 is waiting for GameFreak to build the Switch’s installbase before they release Yo-Kai Watch 4. = )

  • Bojan Babic

    I hope they start releasing games there. Better visual quality for their awesome games. Also, they aren’t million sellers for 3DS so they won’t lose anything for switching to the new hot thing

  • awng782

    Well that was an interesting conversation…

  • I’ve been saying this for the longest.

    Level 5 could have an ultimate success on the Switch. Honestly, if Yo-Kai Watch 4 and the next Pokemon game arrives on the system; the Japanese audience will devour it. I’d like to see the new Ares game come to the Switch. Nothing wrong using better hardware than the 3DS!

    • Hino already sort of confirmed Yokai Watch 4 existence so yeah its coming.

      • PikaPlayzHD

        and since Pokemon is going to the Switch I imagine yo-kai watch will as well, it’s gonna be interesting

    • Fandangle

      I thought Yokai Watch was a dying fad? It didn’t catch on in the US like it initially did in Japan and in Japan it’s popularity is waning because they were just over saturating the market with them. They’re doing the same with Snack World. Though I will forgive them for pumping out mediocrity as long as they use it to fund their passion projects, even if those passion projects are somewhat mediocre as well, but I still have hope for Ni No Kuni II

    Great. Another game that America won’t get instead of a Switch Yo-kai game.

    • Reggie

      Still waiting for a YKW 3 announcement…

    Still waiting for Endou Mamoru Densetsu 1-2-3 collection localized in English, for western people.

  • JasonBall

    That exchange was retarded.

  • Mando44646

    Joke’s on us. It won’t be localized anyway 🙁
