New footie stars, new moves and a whole new adventure’s kicking off in Inazuma Eleven GO: Light and Inazuma Eleven GO: Shadow on Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems! Ten years after Inazuma Eleven 3, newbie Arion Sherwind is putting on his Raimon High soccer kit. It’s his first day, and he’s revved up to be joining the school’s famous football club. But after a weird kid appears on the pitch, Arion works out the club is going to be closed down by a shady company called Fifth Sector, the big bosses in charge of youth football. Time to lace up! Before you even think about going near a ball, you’ve got to make a choice between two editions, Light and Shadow.
