Game from Professor Layton's Level 5 already inspired ongoing TV anime

The July issue of Shogakukan's Monthly CoroCoro Comic magazine is announcing next Tuesday that a movie version of the Inazuma Eleven game franchise has been green-lit for this winter. The soccer role-playing game from Level 5 (Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King, Rogue Galaxy, Professor Layton and the Curious Village) already inspired a television anime series that premiered in October of 2008.

The television series has already been extended until March 2011. In the original game, player assembles and trains a school soccer team for tournaments.

Update: A promotional image indicates that the film has a subtitle of Saikyō Gundan Ogre Raishuu (The Strongest Army Ogre Attacks). Thanks, Splash.

Update 2: The primary image source was found via 2channel. Thanks, Ko Ransom.
