Tsubasa+ is Captain Tsubasa’s Answer to AR Advancement
It seems that the success of Pokemon Go in the past 2016 really made the game developers reconsider the marketability of Augmented Reality games on the market.
This can be seen from major franchises such as Ghostbuster, Jurassic Park, and the most recent is Harry Potter through the Harry Potter Wizard Unite game which is also presented in an AR-style game.
This hype is now followed by one of Youichi Takahashi’s manga / anime classic series, Captain Tsubasa, with the AR game entitled “Tsubasa+ (Tsubasa Plus) which will be released in 2020 with 8 supported languages.
Tsubasa+ – What Will It Be like?
The game developed by Miraire Street * X Reality, with gameplay similar to Pokemon Go, where you are required to walk about to play. From the trailer itself we can know a little about what the gameplay of this game will be.
It can be surmised that the player will take on the role of a football coach who is tasked with finding talented players by scouting (walking) in real life, in the scene at the end of the trailer where it is shown that coach Roberto Hongo looks as if he is playing this Tsubasa+.
Players will be brought to various landmarks that exist in the real world to gather players in the world of Captain Tsubasa. As seen in the trailer, this game itself will be released globally, considering the video shows countries such as Spain, Germany and Italy.
Players can also “build up a team with fellow heroes, strengthen the team, and let your team compete with TSUBASA+ users all around the world.” Stadiums will show up around the city too!
