Swedish player in the first DLC for Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions

Bet that all players in Sweden will call him by a different name.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions has today got the first new players in its Character Pass, including the Swedish nobleman Stefan Levin (who my brain just wants to call the Prime Minister!). In addition, the game gets a great free update that improves the game significantly.

Feel free to read our review of Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions.

The three players who have been released are Swedish midfielder Stefan Levin who can read other players’ qualities and is good at fooling opponents; Singprasert Bunnaak, a Thai defender whose powerful techniques can surprise opponents in his path; and Ricardo Espadas, the Mexican goalkeeper who is a daring striker.

The other 6 players in Character Pass will be revealed in a row at a later date.

Update 1.1

This update, which is free for anyone who owns Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions, introduces a whole new game mode to Story Mode: Episode of New Hero. In this new mode, your talented player joins the rival football team from Otomo Middle School to take revenge on Nankatsu! In this game mode, cooperation between the players becomes the key to victory.

But we should not forget the quality improvements Captain Tsubasa gets with 1.1 such as several balances and adjustments that improve the experience in Versus and Online Versus. I’m watching you twins!

In addition, it gets the very challenging single player campaign Story Mode: Episode of Tsubasa. This Assist Mode has two modes designed to help players get through the story. Of course, it is possible to turn off the assistance and play on the natural level of difficulty.

You can read more about the new players and the update from producer Tsuzuki-san in an official letter on Bandai Namco’s website.
