The Goal For Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road Further Delayed To 2024

Well, Level-5’s latest news is a bit of a bummer. Their much-anticipated sports RPG Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road has been pushed back to March 2024. Yeah, you heard it right; again! The game was first teased in 2016 and set to release initially in 2018.

A Spiral Of Delays

Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road has gone through quite a few rounds of delays already. After its initial release date, it was delayed to May 2019, then to 2020, later to 2023 and now, it’s taking a rain check until 2024. Once it hits the scene, the game will be available on iOS, Android, Switch, PS5 and PS4. There will also be a Switch-exclusive beta version coming worldwide in March.

This isn’t the only title that Level-5 has delayed. A couple of weeks ago, they announced that their titles Fantasy Life I: The Girl Who Steals Time and Megaton Musashi: Wired have been delayed to 2024. Another Switch title Decapolice RPG has also been pushed to 2024, all for the best gaming experience.

Once We Get On The Road To Victory

Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road will be about Sasanami Unmei, a football lover. It’s set 25 years after the original Inazuma Eleven game. The game will have three modes: Story, Chronicle, and Online PvP. The Chronicle mode will feature 4500 characters from all Inazuma Eleven series.

The gameplay will include features like a tension gauge, a revamped match system, player rarities, and live commentary. The game will support cross-play and cross-save on PS5, PS4, and Switch, but unfortunately, not on mobile. Take a peek at the latest trailer of Inazuma Eleven: Victory Road!
