The Top 8 Games Based on Anime

IGN - Like all the cool special edition PS4s, Japan keeps the best anime video games for itself. Unless it’s from a super popular series like Dragon Ball Z or Naruto, then there’s sadly little chance of games based on anime making it to North America. If a game does receive an official translation, it’s usually several months to years after the initial Japanese release, such as with J-Stars Victory VS+.

Even so, a few gems have made it to North America over the years. Whether you're a huge anime fan or just a gamer looking for some stylish action, you can't go wrong with these 8 awesome anime adaptations.

Hyper Dimension was so good, also loved the Super Botouden games.

ZeekQuattro279d ago

I forgot about those. Extreme Butoden was also good. It came with Super Butoden 2 now that I think about it. SB 2 was my favorite one as a kid as it featured Broly.

No dbz fighterz? Outrageous not to have the best looking dbz game. Are you not into tag team 2d fighters?

1. Kakarot
2. Budokai 3
3. Budokai 2

I’ve played more but the others are forgetful for me

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex - The Series' Finest Game Adaptation

Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex debuted on PSP back in 2005 - and it's about time it was revisited on modern hardware.

I’d love to see that, as long as they stay true to its roots

PSP version had more characters to the story and an anime feel as limited as it was for a portable. You could customize the controls but lack of seconds analog stick hurt it. And it was an easy game.

PS2 version was better. Third person where you get to see the anime characters, better controls as there was a camera stick, play as Batou with heavy weapons, stealth as the Major is known for. Cool music, great graphics for the time, hacking puzzles, multiplayer vs. It's not a hard game like what was said. And for those writers that ummm.. aren't good, there's an *EASY* difficulty. But you just needed to know your controls and your characters strengths.

Sorry. PS2 version is better in my opinion. Yes, it lacks Tachikoma gameplay. But everything else was better.

Been playing through this on occasional sessions. Haven't beaten it yet but it is very fun, lots of interesting mechanics, especially how it stays true to the run & gun meunuevers of the series.

Not only does a Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 modding scene exist, but it's host to some kooky fusion abominations!

Tenkaichi 2 and 3 are still by far the best fighting systems in a DBZ game.

Thomas is going Turbo. He's in everything from Skyrim, RE and now this.
