Dragon Ball Super Card Game Digital Version
Published in 2008 and relaunched in 2017, the Dragon Ball card game returns, but this time as a video game. Entitled Dragon Ball Super Card Game Digital Version, the interest of this digital version will be to be able to enjoy in-game animations. This is what we saw in the first trailer to announce the existence of the project, during which we can see Goku doing a Kamehameha. It remains to be seen in what kind of situations this kind of animation will be triggered, if it is in combat or when you open a booster for example. And for those who have cards in physics, we also wonder if they will be able to use them in this version. Many questions still surround this project, but we should learn more on March 4 and 5 during the Dragon Ball Games Battle Hour 2023, an event dedicated to video games from the Dragon Ball universe as its name. indicates it.

Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade
Given the popularity of the anime’s first season, it was obvious that Jujutsu Kaisen was going to get a video game. For its first adaptation, Gege Akutami’s manga is available in mobile free-to-play for iOS and Android which takes the form of a role-playing game with turn-based combat titled Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade. Given the nature of the title, we can expect that we will have to do with a gacha, that is to say an experience that includes a portion of randomness in obtaining certain elements such as characters or equipment. From the little that we have seen of the project, we already know that it benefits from an animated introduction by the Mappa studio which took care of the anime and the film Jujutsu Kaisen 0. On the script side, because yes there is in a, we should meet new characters never seen in the manga who come from a school of exorcism that we do not know yet. An astonishing project which should be released next year in Japan, is surely later here unfortunately.

Black Clover: Rise of the Wizard King
Slated to premiere in 2023 worldwide, Black Clover: Rise of the Wizard King is a mobile free-to-play inspired by the manga of the same name. Its particularity is that it was not developed by a Japanese publisher like Bandai Namco, but rather by a Korean company, namely Pearl Abyss which we know for the MMORPG Black Desert. More specifically, it is the small Vic Game studio that will be in charge of transforming Yuki Tabata’s universe into a video game. From what we have seen from the videos from the beta, it is that it will be a role-playing game with turn-based combat with characters deployed on the ground who have several skills. Between these clashes, we are entitled to well-made cutscenes that allow us to relive the events of the anime, but also, we can walk around in a 3D world by controlling Asta. A project that promises to be ambitious.

Solo Leveling: Arise
We end this list by cheating a little by talking about a Manwha, a Korean manga, which will not be adapted into an anime until next year. Thus, Solo Leveling: Arise is once again a free-to-play game planned for mobile, but also PC, which this time has the originality of an action role-playing game. A little surprising information when we learn that Netmarble is at the origin of the project, a Korean developer and publisher that we know for games like The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, marvel future revolution or Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds. From what we have seen from the beta videos, it is once again a project that looks ambitious, with gameplay close to the typical hack’n’slash of Netmarble who knows about it in the matter. If the title is scheduled for 2023 in Korea and we hope that it will also land quickly with us.
