Anime games for the fans to look forward to
With the anime fanbase now bigger than ever, franchises are taking this opportunity to venture into the world of games to give the fans a new, more interactive experience based on their anime.
Games have been made before but they never really fulfilled its true potential. Many games were made with little effort and lacklustre visuals in an attempt to get maximum profit out of minimum investments.
With game developers releasing new plans for game releases in the near future, it seems like they are finally taking this genre of game seriously. Here are some of the games anime fans can look forward to being released.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Origins
Based on the popular manga The Seven Deadly Sins, Netmarble has released a trailer of an open world RPG similar to Genshin Impact. It is planned to be released in mobile, PC and console. It will be the successor of The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, a turn-based RPG which is very popular among the Gacha gaming community.
The new game seems more interactive and visually appealing than its predecessor, and the producer describes the game as "MMOCCG" (Massively Multiplayer Online Character Collecting Game). It remains to be seen, however, when the game will actually be released.
Fullmetal Alchemist Mobile
In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Fullmetal Alchemist franchise is releasing its own mobile game being developed by Square Enix. They have released a teaser that shows a gameplay where the Elric brothers are seen fighting a goon on top of a moving train.
The teaser indicates that it will be a fighting game with a gameplay similar to that of Dragon Ball FighterZ and may have a story mode. It is expected to be released in this summer.
My Hero Academia: Ultra Rumble
With multiple games already released around this popular anime, Bandai Namco has taken an unexpected route and will be releasing a battle royale game based on My Hero Academia. The beta was released in Japan where players were already able to get a taste of what the game will be like.
Just like any other battle royale game, the target is to survive until the end. But the game seems to have additional side missions and each character has unique skillset and moves. It's expected to be released on consoles and Steam this year.
Black Clover Mobile
This will be a RPG game developed by Pearl Abyss and Vic Game Studios, expected to be released by 2022. Even though the producer refused to say what type of gameplay there will be, the teaser shows it might potentially be an open world game. The visuals already has Black Clover fans hyped up and waiting for its release.
With the developers not wanting to release much information on their games, it's hard to conclude how the final products will look like. Even then, the signs are good and it looks like anime fans are in for a treat.
