Anime Games

Anime games are characterized by Japanese-style animation. Anime movies and games have gained immense popularity not only in the Land of the Rising Sun but also throughout the world. This type of games often draws inspiration for the story from anime TV series. Anime games are sometimes called manga games. Manga means the same style of drawing, but it refers to the graphics in the comic books. Here are some games that are representatives of this type of games.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is as a game which, as you can guess, is based on the anime series that many players know from childhood. The fact that the game belongs to the genre of fighting games also doesn’t surprise anyone. Dragon Ball FighterZ has been created by the Japanese studio Arc System Works. In the game, you compose a team of three warriors and switch between them during the fight. The game itself is a classic 2D fighting game. During the fights, you can use the unique skills of the Dragon Ball characters. The heroes you can choose belong of course to the well-known anime series.

The next game is Aragami, also available for PC download. This is an action game created by Link Works studio from Barcelona. In the game, you play the eponymous Aragami, who is an undead killer resurrected by a mysterious girl named Yamiko. This heroine asks him to get her out of a closely guarded tower. The game is based primarily on sneaking and hiding in the dark, the fight here is rather a last resort. Aragami has a pleasing visual setting.

The third title on the list is Berserk Warrior. Also available on PC and kept in a dark fantasy atmosphere. The studio behind the title is Omega Force from Japan. It is an action game in which the main character is Guts, a mercenary. He declares war against the forces of evil threatening the planet. What follows is a third person hack’n’slash. There are lots of enemies to kill. Combining spectacular blows in combos is your bread and butter.

Anime games are gaining popularity in the world, although the most popular are those created by Japanese studios. With time, probably also Western game producers, will undertake the task of creating great anime titles. There already a few examples of such efforts – Doki Doki Literature Club! or Yandere Simulator.
