Captain Tsubasa 5: Hasha no Shōgō Campione (キャプテン翼Ⅴ 覇者の称号カンピオーネ "Captain Tsubasa V Campione Champion Title"?)[3] is the fifth and final instalment of the original Captain Tsubasa video game series by Tecmo. It's a sequel of Captain Tsubasa 4: Pro no Rival Tachi and was released exclusively in Japan for Nintendo's Super Famicom on December 9, 1994.



The game differs greatly from its "Cinematic Soccer" oriented predecessors. It adopts a new gameplay with a classic view of the pitch and improved graphics. It features various RPG elements with special techniques of characters, known from Captain Tsubasa manga and anime series. Players strongly resembling real-life stars of the time: Júlio César da Silva, Jean-Pierre Papin, Peter Schmeichel, Franco Baresi, Ronald Koeman, Tomas Brolin, Dennis Bergkamp, or Gabriel Batistuta are present in the game. Tecmo also introduced its own characters, like Brazilian ace Signori, ultra-fast forward Alcion, and world class goalkeeper Savičević, among others.

The game's story mode focuses mainly on Tsubasa's Serie A season with Lecce and international campaign with Japan. In addition, other characters like Kojiro Hyuga, Genzo Wakabayashi, Lui Napoleón, Carlos Santana or Karl-Heinz Schneider have their less-expanded scenarios as well. The competitions in the game are based on real major international tournaments, like Asian Cup, Copa América and World Cup. In the All-star mode, the players can create new characters, arrange a friendly match (with all the teams, or by composing an own squad from all the players available in the game), and create a league with national or club teams.

Possible sequel

During the story mode there were two explicit references that could foresee a possible sequel: the dutch Van Berg challenging Tsubasa after the match against the Netherlands, when he refers to a new super shot that he has developed, and especially the rant of an angry Alcion after the final match, where he explicitly states a revenge in Captain Tsubasa 6. However, since then, Tecmo has not developed any Captain Tsubasa game and with those characters.


The game was unofficially translated into various languages: English, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, Chinese or Arabic. The translations were not authorized by Nintendo.
