A western release of Inazuma Eleven remains a distant and unclear goal, but Level-5 is already up to a third game in the popular soccer RPG in Japan. Having just announced Inazuma Eleven 3: Challenge of the World!!, Level-5 has yet to offer many details about the plot or gameplay changes.

What is known is that the game contains a "Super Link" feature that allows players to import characters from Inazuma Eleven 2. We hope, then, that Inazuma Eleven 2 comes out in the West before Inazuma Eleven 3 (which is out this summer in Japan), and we hope that all of these things happen in our lifetimes.
