Captain Tsubasa: Dream Team is now available for mobile in English. The Japanese version of the game has been running for quite sometime now and it does not surprise me to see an English version coming out of it. The game is a hybrid of turn-based and tactical gameplay. You select where your players go/pass the ball and when there are enemies intercepting it will show you commands on what you can do. You can play the story mode to play through the original story. You can also modify your players and create your ideal team. You can also compete with other players to prove that your team is the best.
