Nintendo pulled a bit of a fast one on us during yesterday’s Nintendo Direct that we didn’t see coming. Level-5’s soccer/RPG hybrid series Inazuma Eleven is now available through the Nintendo 3DS eShop just like that. No hype, no trailers, no official announcement that it’s coming.
Boom, it’s just there for the taking. The first game in the series is available for $19.99.
The game briefly appeared on Nintendo’s official website earlier this year, but it was quickly scrubbed away without any explanation as to why it was published on a release calendar. Well, now we know the answer. Be sure to check out Inazuma Eleven on the Nintendo 3DS eShop and maybe Level-5 will bring over a few more games its holding out on.
