Captain Tsubasa 5: Hasha no Shogo Campione (キャプテン翼V 覇者の称号カンピオーネ kyaputen tsubasa V hasha no shougou kanpione), translated as Captain Tsubasa V: Campione, Title of the Champion, is the fifth and last installment of the original Captain Tsubasa videogame series developed by Tecmo.


It is a sequel of Captain Tsubasa 4: Pro no Rival Tachi and was released for Nintendo's Super Famicom on 9 December, 1994.


The game differs greatly from its "Cinematic Football" oriented predecessors. It adopts a new gameplay with a classic view of the pitch and improved graphics. It features various RPG elements with special techniques of characters, known from Captain Tsubasa manga and anime series. Players strongly resembling real-life stars of the time: Thomas Häßler, Julio Cesar da Silva, Jean-Pierre Papin, Peter Schmeichel, Franco Baresi, Ronald Koeman, Tomas Brolin, Dennis Bergkamp, or Gabriel Batistuta are present in the game. Tecmo also introduced its own characters, like Brazilian ace Signori, skilful forward Alcyone, and world class goalkeeper Savicevic, among others.

The game's story mode focuses mainly on Tsubasa's Serie A season with Lecce and international campaign with Japan. In addition, other characters like Kojiro Hyuga, Genzo Wakabayashi, Lui Napoleón, Carlos Santana or Karl-Heinz Schneider have their less-expanded scenarios as well. The competitions in the game are based on real major international tournaments, like Asian Cup, Copa America and World Cup. In the All-star mode, the players can create new characters, arrange a friendly match (with all the teams, or by composing an own squad from all the players available in the game) and create a league with national or club teams.
