Inazuma Eleven is the first game in the Inazuma Eleven series of soccer video games, released for the Nintendo DS. It was first released in Japan in 2008, but was localised for a European release in 2011 to coincide with the dubbing of the Inazuma Eleven anime series.
In 2014, Inazuma Eleven was finally brought to North America on the Nintendo eShop. It costs $20, and features improved visuals and new voice acting. This version of Inazuma Eleven was taken out of the Japanese compilation release, Inazuma Eleven 1-2-3: Endou Mamoru Densetsu.
