The program also announced that the anime will premiere in October, though it was originally slated for summer.
The program also announced a "completely new episode 27" for Inazuma Eleven will screen at the "Inazuma Eleven Dai-Fukkatsusai" event in September. The spinoff episode will lead up to the premiere of Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin and remake the earlier anime's existing 27th episode with a diverging story.

The story of Inazuma Eleven: Ares no Tenbin is set after the first Inazuma Eleven, but will take place in a parallel world from all other Inazuma Eleven games apart from the first because the story has taken a different course.
