However, the show will take place in a parallel world from all other Inazuma Eleven soccer role-playing games (apart from the first), because the story has taken a different course.

The original 127-episode anime series aired between 2008-2011, and has since inspired the Inazuma Eleven GO, Inazuma Eleven GO 2: Chrono Stone, and Inazuma Eleven GO Galaxy sequel series. The television anime franchise ended its five-and-a-half year run in March 2014. The anime franchise also includes three films and the Inazuma Eleven Go vs. Danb?ru Senki W crossover film.
Nintendo released a 3DS port of the original Inazuma Eleven game in North America in February 2014.
