Need a break from the tightly condensed and unpredictable football season that’s unfolding in real-life? Then why not give anime soccer a try with the free Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions demo available on the PS Store now. This is playable on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 courtesy of backwards compatibility, and includes the tutorial and offline versus modes.
You’ll be able to try out four teams: Nankatsu Middle School, Toho Academy, Furano Middle School, and Musashi Middle School. We actually had mixed feelings about this one, awarding it a 5/10 in our review: “Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions is a bit like when you fancy watching a game of footy but there's only the Scottish league on the telly. Sure, it looks like football to the untrained eye, and yes, occasionally it's entertaining just like real football, but you're mainly there hoping that someone is going to get chinned.”
