Inazuma Eleven is getting a new game and television anime, complete with a nifty little wearable link device that encourages you to exercise.

The new game is also from Level-5, who released the first Inazuma Eleven game in 2008 for the Nintendo DS. For those unfamiliar with the franchise, it’s mostly about soccer.

The story of Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin  is set after the events of the first Inazuma Eleven, but takes place in a parallel world. It still centers on protagonist Asuto Inamori as he attends Daimon Junior High (Daimon-chuu) to play soccer.

The game will also be playable with a wearable link device called the Eleven Band, manufactured by Takara Tomy. The device lets players to accumulate points by exercising; which then can be used to raise the stats of characters in-game.

The anime on the other hand, is also based off the game of the same name, and includes Hiroshi Kamiya as Ryohei Haizaki, Ayumu Murase as Asuto Inamori and Jun Fukuyama as Yuma Nosaka, pictured below from left to right.
