At the time of writing, it’s not completely certain whether pre-orders are actually open yet or where. The editions are only mentioned on Bandai Namco’s European website, but the links to actually pre-order Captain Tsubasa don’t lead to a product page.

We enjoyed our time with Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions quite a bit when we got the chance to preview it a while back, and we’re looking forward to seeing the final product in all its glory.

For now, you can check out the special editions on Bandai Namco’s Europe site. Stay tuned to GameSkinny for more Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions news as it develops.
