Inazuma Eleven Ares will be on 3DS, also planned for “higher quality game machine”
Posted 3 days ago by Brian in 3DS, News | 8 Comments
When Level-5 announced Inazuma Eleven Ares last year, the company did so without announcing any platforms. But during the fourth Inazuma Walker live stream today, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino finally shared some news.
Hino said that, in addition to 3DS, Inazuma Eleven Ares will be on some other platform. “It may also release on what you would call a higher quality game machine… perhaps,” Hino teased.
Switch could certainly be one possibility. With Inazuma Eleven Ares featuring toys and Nintendo’s new system having an NFC reader, a release on the new console would make sense.
You can watch the full, three-hour broadcast of Inazuma Walker below, which even includes trailers for The Snack World anime.

Super Mario Run’s revenue “did not meet our expectations,” Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima told Asia Nikkei. However, don’t expect the company to ditch the pay-once-and-play model, despite the success of Fire Emblem Heroes.
One senior company official at Nintendo said that “Heroes is an outlier.” This person also mentioned, “We honestly prefer the Super Mario Run model.”

Rime was one of the first instances of a multiplatform game costing $10 more on Switch. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like it will be the last.
Amazon and GameStop both have pre-orders open for the Switch version of Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure. Both listings have the collection down for $40. On other platforms, the asking price was $30. So much like Rime, Minecraft: Story Mode – The Complete Adventure will cost $10 more on Switch.
