Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions Kicks Off Character Pass DLC This Week

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions launches its character pass later this week. First up, players will meet stars from Sweden, Thailand, and Mexico.

Starting on December 3, Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions players will access to some international superstars via DLC. The character pass starts with just three new characters in the game, but over time, the total pass will include nine new soccer stars. Alongside the DLC, all players will get access to a new team in the game’s story mode. Now, you can join Shun Nitta and help lead the Otomo Middle School team to victory. Check out the new trailer below.

The first three players joining Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions come from all over the world. Sweden’s Stefan Levin brings his expert technique to the table. He’ll help your created characters learn how to dominate the midfield. Thailand’s Singprasert Bunnaak brings his powerful legs to the field. His training in Muay Thai makes him an incredibly sturdy opponent that is sure to challenge even the most battle-tested players.

Finally, Ricardo Espadas from Mexico brings his fleet-footed dribbling technique to the goalkeeper position. He introduces the ability to build your spirit gauge as a keeper by dribbling in the open field. That should add a nifty bit of risk-reward to games he’s in.

And, of course, the new school route for the single-player story gives veteran players yet another path to explore. Plus, the team has added in some new assist modifiers that should help newer players out with the difficulty. As someone who’s played through the game a few times, those should be very useful to get through some of the game’s tougher matches.

Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is available now on Nintendo Switch, PC, and PS4. The Otomo story launches on December 2, while the character pass kicks off on December 3.
