Captain Tsubasa(キャプテン翼) is a 1994 video game released by Tecmo for the Sega Mega-CD and based on the popular Captain Tsubasa manga/anime series. It was published only in Japan.
The game is a further extension of Tecmo's "Cinematic Soccer" genre of games that appeared previously in other platforms, with the player watching from a cinematic angle and having to choose his actions from a timed list, with the results of these actions being animated on screen. It is also notable for being the first CD-ROM based Captain Tsubasa video game, featuring improved spoken cutscenes with the purpose of retelling the original Captain Tsubasa story more closely to watching the anime.
