Anime and videogames have always had an ambivalent relationship. There is a clear connection between those who love anime and those who love videogames, but most licensed anime games tend to be cheap cash-ins that never bring the source material to life. The best of the bunch is PlayStation 2’s classic fighting game, Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3. It was great for a very simple and juvenile reason; it made me feel like Goku in a fight. Sadly, they never went further with that concept. Where is the anime fan’s Arkham Asylum? When will developers make a true AAA anime title worthwhile? Better take a seat, because the search for this higher standard hasn’t been reached. And if One Piece: Romance Dawn is any indication, anime fans will be waiting for quite a while.
