Following confirmation of their arrival during February’s Nintendo Direct, both Inazuma Eleven 3: Lightning Bolt and Inazuma Eleven 3: Bomb Blast have today been dated for European release.

Within LEVEL-5’s latest you’ll pursue glory in steering your football team to victory at the Frontier International Championships, recruiting your line-up from over 2000 characters and employing use of 350 in-game special moves.

Lightning Bolt and Bomb Blast see the narrative explored through separate characters, whilst your rivals will also differ.

New features introduced see special tactical team plays come into effect, as well as a goal shoot chaining system with which you can connect special moves together to be more aggressive with your shots on goal.

Players are also scouted through a new capsule vending machine, whereas an Inazuma Eleven figurine set will be available running up to launch.

Inazuma Eleven 3: Lightning Bolt and Inazuma Eleven 3: Bomb Blast will release exclusively for Nintendo 3DS on September 27th.
