Anime Games Need A Break From Arena Fighters

With so many anime games these past couple of years, there's a growing, noticeable pattern in these games that are growing stale — the Arena Fighter.

I think Arena Fighters are the worst fighting subgenre to go to. Why havent the west gotten Shonen Jump games in the style of Marvel Vs. Capcom 2? Or Anime fighter like DBZ Fighterz but not just dragon ball? Arena Fighters just arent very good fighter imo. Even the best Arena Fighter series Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm I feel is pretty mediocre as a fighting game

The best Arena Fighter was Tenkaichi 3 and now it’s about to be Sparking Zero. Other Anime series just can’t pull it off as well as Dragonball can

Have you seen Hunter×Hunter Nen×Impact yet? It sounds exactly like what you're looking for.

We need more AAA anime games that are single player story driven, like you are experiencing another arc or something within that show. It's either fighting games or games that feel shallow with not much going for them, the kind which are made for the sake of it because the fanbase will eat it up anyway.

I want to see a proper well made game by great studios of Cowboy Bebop, Tenchi Muyo, Sailor Moon, Dirty Pair Flash etc

One piece is that one of the anime thats not Pokemon and digimon that ive seen that has plenty of games outside of fighting.

Michiel198912h ago

dragon ball, naruto had some pretty good ones although a lot of them are still fighters and I think there are plenty of games from lesser known animes that aren't that, but I haven't really kept up with anime so maybe I'm completely wrong.

I would like a pokemon smash style anime inspired games.

Flewid63819h ago

The entire fighting game genre needs a break from anime.

To be honest I'd rather know stuff is in the works but other ppl throw fits over it so it's whatever

porkChop4d ago

I'd rather they announce a game when it's like 3 months away. Quick little advertising campaign, round of interviews, gameplay deep dive, and a launch trailer. That's all you need. Cheaper marketing rather than wasting resources trying to maintain hype over like 4 years.

SimpleDad4d ago

Also, it's more likely that people will be hyped up and make an impulse purchase, or a preorder if the release date is announced.

Hotpot4d ago

Not announcing too early also contributes to better work environment. I’m in IT and there’s just too many crunch happened because some higher ups set a hard deadline way too early down the line.

franwex4d ago

Yeah. Fallout 4 announcement was great. Announced during the summer and it came out fall of the same year.

stalnox4d ago

The same thing happened with Witchbrook, its been multiple years and nothing. No updates at all, really. It's nice to know something is coming, but waiting for 5+ years for info isn't really fun

Demetrius3d ago (Edited 3d ago )

Ikr I agree tho, in the ps360 era games were shown in trailers and they'd release within a couple months, plus cutscene trailers are so days of the old I don't get hyped off of that, they used to show gameplay footage, screenshots in the game informer magazines they had confidence back then creativity was at a all time high folks weren't copying souls games like that or call of duty, nowadays we get shhi like 2023/2024 trailer with a damn fall 2026 type of release day like really bruh tf by time that come out yall sure ya gone get sales from folks who been waiting that long, that's a huge risk doing that cause people lose interest
