BECOME THE STAR PLAYER IN INAZUMA ELEVEN STRIKERS ON Wii

9th August 2012 – Immerse yourself in the world of Inazuma Eleven like never before when Inazuma Eleven Strikers makes its Wii console debut on 28th September 2012. Shape and control a dream team of star players from the Inazuma Eleven series and enjoy intense football battles for up to four players.

Prepare for all-out action in this home console sibling to the popular handheld football RPGs; this time, arcade-style action brings the series to life like never before as the stadiums, the characters and their spectacular special moves become playable on the big screen, looking exactly like fans of the TV series have come to expect.

Take part in a series of competitions that represent Raimon Jr High team’s rise through the ranks, playing through the most significant team encounters of the TV series - some of which haven’t even aired yet! You can also build your entire team from scratch. New players can be scouted from any team you defeat – but it’ll take a hefty sum of Inazuma Points and a pitch-perfect eye to shape a team of champions.

Each of the over 150 characters from the series has their own specific strengths – and as you pit players together they’ll grow bonds that improve certain skills even further. Respect the power of team play and you’ll even be able to pull of powerful Co-op Moves! As you win more matches, you’ll be able to unleash ever more impressive Special Moves to stop your opponent in his tracks or go straight for the goal yourself; with the level and element of two opposing moves deciding who comes out victorious!

Inazuma Eleven Strikers offers plenty of challenge for solo players and even more fun for up to four friends in local multiplayer! Whether you work together as a team or challenge each other in 2 vs. 2 or 1 vs. 3, in single matches or fully-fledged tournaments - it’s your call! a second player can even take on different supporting roles by acting as a Coach or a Manager.

From managing your team in the Club Room to discovering the delights of special training minigames – there’s loads more to discover, so stay tuned for updates to the official Inazuma Eleven Strikers website and make sure you follow @NintendoUK on Twitter as we reveal how you can unlock special characters to scout for your ultimate team!

Following the offering of the Inazuma Eleven RPG games on Nintendo DS, this arcade-style action title for Wii promises to bring Inazuma Eleven fever to the big screen like never before! Tackle your way to victory this autumn when Inazuma Eleven Strikers launches across Europe exclusively for Wii on 28th September 2012.
