We have some bad news to share with fans of the Inazuma Eleven franchise. It seems that Level-5 is putting that game on the backburner for a bit to focus on the world of Yo-Kai Watch.
Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino took to Twitter to share a message about Inazuma Eleven: Heroes' Great Road, the next Inazuma Eleven game. It seems we'll have to wait quite a bit to see what's going on with that game, as Level-5 is shifting their focus for the time being. Check out Mr. Hino's message below.
Pardon the sudden message, but for business purposes we have prioritized the development of Yo-kai Academy Y over Inazuma Eleven: Great Road of Heroes. Currently, discussion on the groundwork needed to make [Inazuma Eleven] a hit title is required, so that game development may be allowed to continue. We’re putting all our efforts into making it a good game. Please forgive us for the long wait.
