Inazuma Eleven Game

Inazuma Eleven (イナズマイレブン / Inazuma Irebun / "Lightning Eleven") is the first game of the Inazuma Eleven series for Nintendo DS.

Inazuma Eleven 2: Kyoui no Shinryakusha


Inazuma Eleven 2: Kyoui no Shinryakusha (イナズマイレブン2 脅威の侵略者) is the second installment of the Inazuma Eleven games for Nintendo DS. There are two versions: Fire and Blizzard.

Story Mode

The main character, Endou Mamoru, is a very talented goalkeeper. He plays for his junior high school's soccer team called Raimon Junior High, which has just won the Football Frontier. Out of a sudden, "aliens" attack not just their school — but all the other junior high schools that have soccer. They are now thrown into fighting against the "aliens".

Match Mode

The game is split into two parts: one resembles a RPG, featuring various location that Endou and his team have to explore in order to get new items, face several other players in short casual battles or to advance further in the story. Most of the goals of this part are indicated by a giant purple arrow; the second part is the actual match: using the stylus, the player moves the soccer team around against another team. The player can dodge opponent's attacks, slide tackle to take the ball away, or use a special ability available to the characters they recruited. The result of any of his players actions are determined by seven skills, the player's affinity, and the total number of players participating in an action. Special abilities can only be stopped with other abilities, meaning that they will always win against basic tactics. Super shots and Super keeps however play simultaneously, which means that unlike defending the ball they always consume the Ability bar and at the beginning are determined by the player affinity only.

Connection mode

Players are able to take each other on via wireless mode.

Two Games

They are divided into two games mainly Fire and Blizzard both having different stories.
