"What are the odds? " with how many anime come out these days, very likely actually, especially since it take place in anime's homeland

considering that there has not been an anime on this in the past 60 years of the history of anime, very, very unlikely that it'd happen in a similar timeframe as the only game in the 40 years of the history of games.

Yeah cause you have all knowledge of the hundreds of thousands of anime and their settings from the past 60years. C'mon bro

Before you write "C'mon bro" can you bring up an example of one set in the first Mongol invasion of Japan?

Bet you can't.

i watched a 'tactics' anime of this in 2016 or 2017 (a la code geass), dont remember the name. There are enough animes that are about it.

just google 'feudal japan mongol invasion anime' et voila.

Abriael104d ago

There's no "tactics" anime on the Mongol invasion of Tsushima. And the google search you suggested returned only Angolmois.

Considering how well Netflix' Marco Polo was received by the people, it is very likely that the tv series served as an inspiration for sucker punch to explore the mongolian empire as the setting for their game. or maybe the manga inspired them to look into mongolian empire. and probably marco polo tv series is the reason why we are seeing an anime adaptation right now.

Great article abriael. Extra points for putting me on to a new read.

Well, but Sucker Punch did it first. It's like those movies you see on Netflix that are strangely identical to the not yet released Disney movies. You're trying to capitalize and ride the wave of someone else's success.

Not necessarily. The anime is based on a manga that was created in 2013. More than likely the anime was in production before Ghost of Tsushima was even revealed. This is literally a coincidence.

Reminds me that I need to finish drifters. What an awesome game premise drifters would be.

I just got done watching Guyver. Its one of those animes where the series ends but the story doesn't. Couldn't begin to tell you how much I LOVE a complete lack closure in my anime.
