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.

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.

The 3D Audio customizations are great news. Tempest Audio is the most underrated feature of the console.

And the Remote Play update is huge, basically now you can share your whole console remotely with friends and family without giving out your own password. They just need to have an account on your console.

Honestly, I am surprised they went so far with the Remote Play changes.

This is a great update!


Review: Jeanne d'Arc - Long Awaited Strategy RPG Remains Divine | Push Square

Khayl Adam: "With the release of the game for PS5 and PS4, which features up-rendered graphics, quality-of-life features like rewind and quick save, and custom video filters, there is now no excuse not to play what has rightfully become something of a cult classic. Level-5's take on the historical Hundred Years War that raged between the kingdoms of England and France in the 15th century is a creative one, and we're glad to report that the wait has been worth it."

Sounds like it opens the floodgates for more Dr Disrespect-likes.

Also, a Google Stadia feature that was never implemented but was spoken about in a way such that streamers could invite viewers into their game with just a link.

Creepy and encourages creeps to be even creepier.

It's just an optional way to make it easier to invite people into groups for multiplayer...
