If you love soccer, North America isn’t normally the best place to live. Today, Nintendo is making it better.

It took a while (five years and a dozen games released between Japan and Europe), but the international hit franchise Inazuma Eleven has finally made it to North America.

The first installment of the soccer-role-playing game series was originally on the Nintendo DS. It released during 2008 in Japan and 2011 in Europe and the U.K. ┬áThe game features character development via leveling up and upgrading stats, tactical soccer matches, and special moves that come with over-the-top visual displays, such as “flaming tornado kicks” (it is a Japanese role-playing game, after all).

It will hit the 3DS eShop today and cost $20.

Nintendo announced the news during today’s Nintendo Direct presentation.
