Topic: Best anime games on a Nintendo console?

Posts 1 to 11 of 11


I'm a huge fan of all things anime, and I'm interested in buying some games on any Nintendo console based on anime shows,, movies, etc..

Any suggestions, it can be on any Nintendo console, as I pretty much have all of them.



Astro Boy: Omega Factor is the first game that comes to mind. Legit one of the best games on GBA.

@kkslider5552000 I love Astro Boy! I didn't know there was a GameBoy advance game based on it. Thanks.



There’s plenty of semi decent arena fighters on the Switch with the usual anime names like Dragon Ball, Naruto, Kill la Kill, My Hero Academia etc plus Jump Force which has a crossover of them.

I'd say the best ones I've played are

Dragonball Fighters(Switch)
Jump Ultimate Stars(DS Import)
Tatsunoko Vs Capcom(Wii)

I've heard good things about Kill La Kill, My Hero Ones Justice and Captain Tsubasa. The ones I've heard to avoid are Jump Force and One Punch Man.

If you search Globku on YouTube, he covers pretty much all modern anime games, might be helpful to check some of his vids out.

@EHei9229 I recommend you check out Forgotton Anne by Square Enix. There's a demo on eshop. I knew I had to buy it after 15-20 minutes of playing. I rarely finish games, but I finished this one. I hope Square Enix makes another like it.

Dragon Ball FighterZ is literally the peak of all anime-licensed video games

I quite enjoyed One Piece Pirate Warriors 3 on the Switch. Classic Warriors gameplay, covering the first few arcs of the manga/anime.

I'm surprised (and disappointed) that there hasn't been a Sailor Moon game of some description given its resurgence in popularity over the last 5-7 years and the wave of merchandise that has come to the West. A local boutique chain even had Sailor Moon shirts for men, and other stores have Sailor Moon Monopoly, kitchenware etc. Really cool stuff for fans of the franchise. I doubt that we even had merchandise like this available at the height of the franchise's popularity in the mid 90s, but then again, the West was still warming to anime at the time, and the fanbase has changed a lot from then to now (especially as uncut subtitled versions have gained a huge following, and some series have been retroactively issued uncut dubs/subtitles).

I can't think of any "anime" games in my possession except for perhaps Digimon Cyber Sleuth Complete Edition, which has been great, though it reminds me a bit of Flower, Sun, and Rain with its odd and occasionally cryptic storytelling and science fiction elements.

But I would absolutely jump at a Sailor Moon game, even if it's Japanese only. It would be nice if games from other really popular series such as The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (which had games on DS and Wii) were to be localised and sold internationally. Considering that the likes of Attack of Titan and Robotics;Notes have been localised, and even issued an English-language physical releases, I think we are at a point where the market has embraced anime games with open arms; sure, not in the millions, as that would be a monumental ask, but certainly enough to make these games more profitable than they would have been back when they were restricted to an exclusively Japanese/Asian audience.
