5 Anime That Need Video Games – Kumundra.com

I miss when games were simple when you could just pop a disc into a console and play it instantly. Where licensed games were plentiful and when games were awesome. Even though we get a handful of licensed games these days, that pales in comparison to the PS2 era when anything could be a game. For God’s sake, we got a game Charlie Angel on GameCube, what a time to be alive. The holy grail of licensed games was, of course, video games based on popular cartoons. I want to spend today pitching five anime that need to be adapted into video games, pronto!

Team based action fun

Coming in at the bottom of our list today is Black Clover, which is a shonen action anime that’s ripe for a video game adaptation. Just for clarification, there was once a game on the series called Quartet Knight, but to put it bluntly, it’s not very good. The game has a non-canon story and the multiplayer component is dead. I want to see a Black Clover that uses the manga’s amazing stories and characters.

Expand the 4-man team mechanism in the original game and enjoy a unique experience. Expand the character roster to include some of the manga’s new additions. You can even fix the online mode and make sure it doesn’t die of neglect. Think of the Attack on Titan games and some character support conversations. Black Clover needs a game to prepare people for the upcoming anime return.

Rip and tear with Chainsaw Man

Chainsaw Man Anime Reveals Long-Awaited New Trailer, Release Date

If you haven’t heard of Chainsaw Man, you’ve been living under a rock. With over-the-top action, a killer metal soundtrack and a killer collection of waifus, what’s not to love? To capitalize on this popularity, we need an action game with the characters of Chainsaw Man. Take the explosive combat of Bayonetta and DMC and translate it into the gore and guts of Chainsaw Man.

It could be a simple action game where we could explore the events of the manga and maybe get additional content to expand the world. I could see PlatinumGames taking that title back and adding some of their trademark quirkiness to a franchise that’s already quite present.

Dark Age of Berserk

With the resounding success of Elden Ring, it made me think back to Berserk. Since the tragic death of Kentaro Miura this year, I’ve longed for one last Berserk game. The idea of ​​From Software doing a faithful adaptation of Berserk with the brutal difficulty they are known for is a match made in heaven.

From Software has already put so many references to Berserk in its games, not to mention that its art style is perfect for Berserk. While there have been a few Berserk games in the past, including the mediocre musou game a few years ago, I would love to see one last Berserk game to immortalize the series in pop culture forever.

Classic Shonen action

I mean I knew without a doubt that Jujutsu Kaisen was going to be fire. The imaginative power system, funny characters and awesome villains would make perfect video game material. We could get a true spiritual successor to the Ninja Storm games with improved mechanics. There’s a huge number of characters, so there’s plenty of opportunity for interesting combat scenarios.

The game could be a fun online battle scene and could explore manga content more. Plus, this might be a chance to wash away the bad taste that Jump Force has left on the games industry’s collective mouth. How did it come close to winning Fighting Game of the Year? A JJK fighting game would be a new and exciting take on the world of fighting games.

Volleyball with the boys

We’ve talked about a lot of series related to battle and action, but let’s talk about volleyball. Haikyuu is probably one of the most unique and compelling sports anime I’ve ever watched. The rivalries were exhilarating and each match was filled with twists and turns. Wouldn’t it be cool if we could relive anime’s hottest moments through a volleyball RPG?

Indie games have taken on sports RPGs in the past and I think Haikyuu could make a perfect experience for a volleyball RPG. You bring together all the main team members and you can develop and learn techniques directly from the show. I could finally play an outdoor volleyball video game without feeling lingering shame about my life choices.

These are our anime picks that deserve new games! Let us know on Twitter which anime you’d like to see get a game in the future!
