Overview of TSUBASA+
TSUBASA+ is a real-world game in which TSUBASA+Players use the GPS on their mobile phones to create a real-world view of Yoichi Takahashi’s internationally popular manga “Captain Tsubasa,” which is loved by three generations of fans of every nationality. Directed by Yoshiki Okamoto, creator of many major game titles.
When TSUBASA+Players check in at the TSUBASA+ football stadiums scattered throughout the city, their characters interact with the characters of Yoichi Takahashi’s Captain Tsubasa and characters with images and names of football players used under license from FIFPRO Commercial Enterprises B.V., and Meiji Yasuda J.League. TSUBASA+Players can then challenge these character-players by stacking and releasing up to five, coloured energy-balls, and when they win, the character-players and TSUBASA+Players become TSUBASA+Teammates.
Each TSUBASA+Player selects and teams up with two character-players from his TSUBASA+Teammates to form a three-man-team, then TSUBASA+Players challenge each other. TSUBASA+Players can strengthen their characters’ skills in friendly matches and in training sessions at TSUBASA+Stadiums. In addition to tuning their skills in training sessions, TSUBASA+Players can build up their overall strength by using items that they can acquire when they have more than one of the same character-players in their squad of TSUBASA+Teammates.
For more information, please see the press release of September 2nd, 2020.
The first official TSUBASA+ supporter has been accredited to Andres Iniesta, a former member of the Spain National Football Team and currently playing for Vissel Kobe. TSUBASA+ interview with Andres can be viewed on the official TSUBASA+ website (https://tsubasa.plus).
