Today, Level-5 livestreamed the latest episode of Inazuma Walker, its webshow entirely dedicated to the Inazuma Eleven series (and more precisely Inazuma Eleven Ares). This time around, we got quite a lot of goodies: trailer for Inazuma Eleven Reloaded, the first episode of the Inazuma Eleven Ares game, and even some gameplay footage for the game!
If you missed the livestream, no problem: here’s the full recording!
Also, if you came here looking for news about the Inazuma Eleven Ares game, make sure to check out this post instead! The one you’re reading right now is only overing the presentation itself, with all the details + footage for the game going into that other post.
Inazuma Walker Vol.8 – Corner #1
The first corner of this episode was the usual one where fans share memories / fun anecdotes about the series. This time around, the theme was “The Ultra Dimension Near You!”. Basically, extraordinary things or people that have happened or could be found near you.
The theme for the next episode is “Just you watch, Mr. Akihiro Hino! This is my Inazuma Eleven!”. Basically, they’re asking for players to share memories of their time with the game, such as “I wanted to have that character at defense position, but it was too hard to recruit him”. It can be impressive things you did in the game, fun things that happened to you, parts you struggled with, etc.

Inazuma Walker Vol.8 – Corner #3
The third segment was one where they talked about the three protagonist of the Inazuma Eleven series, using various keywords to describe them.

Inazuma Walker Vol.8 – Corner #4
During this segment, they discussed the big Inazuma Eleven event that was announced several months ago, which is now taking place on January 21st, at the Tokyo Big Sight in Japan. There, two things will be shown (among other things, this isn’t the full program!):
- Inazuma Eleven Reloaded, the “Another Episode 27”, that bridges the original Inazuma Eleven series and Inazuma Eleven Ares, basically replacing the original Episode 27;
- Inazuma Eleven Ares: Episode 1
What’s more, Akihiro Hino specified that the version of the first episode to be shown at the event would be akin to a “Director’s Cut”, longer than the one that will air on TV in April.
Here’s the preview for Inazuma Eleven Reloaded:
And the one for Inazuma Eleven Ares: Episode 1:
Inazuma Walker Vol.8 – Corner #5
Next, it was announced that the next episode of the livestream would be in just a month, on November 25th. It will be on a Saturday again, and at 8PM. This episode will be about the big Inazuma Eleven event in January, and will have more details about it (including where and how to get tickets, and more). We can probably expect the next episode of Inazuma Eleven: Outer Code too, but it’s not 100% confirmed yet.
