Cosplay Wednesday – Captain Tsubasa

Bandai Namco is taking the classic anime and manga series Captain Tsubasa and is bringing it to the world of video games with the release of Captain Tsubasa: Rise of New Champions. In honor of this title, Gamers Heroes takes a look at a dead ringer for the series.

Taken with a Canon PowerShot A2200, this Captain Tsubasa cosplay by DiegoContrerasP has got the hair, the costume, and most importantly, the ball. Hailing from Columbia, his hobbies include video games, drawing, playing the guitar, practicing sports, and other arts. Needless to say, a lot of his passions came together for this shoot.

He has previously worked with gaming start-ups like Raptr, publishers like Konami, and roller derby girls at PAX West (check out Jam City Rollergirls)! Gamers Heroes is a passion project for him, giving him a chance to tap into the underground side of gaming. He is all too eager to give these lesser-known heroes of the indie space the attention they so rightly deserve, seeking out the next gem and sharing it with the world. Previously making appearances at events like CES, GDC, and (the late) E3, he is all too happy to seek out the next big thing.
