Videogameszone created their top list of the best anime and manga games for Wii and Nintendo DS. Which one is your favourite?
I've been interested in Jump Ultimate Stars for a while, problem is that I'm not japanese and because of such I do not/can not understand it.
Like the first, there is literally zero chance of it hitting outside of Japan, unfortunately.
I do have to wonder if we'll start to see more of these anime/manga themed games outside of Japan in coming years, as the Japanese companies take a greater stake in the overseas distribution of their properties. Right now, what's holding back titles like the Super Robot Wars series are complicated licensing issues. But if Capcom can bring titles like Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom over (which certainly had plenty of those attached licensing issues), then there's hope for us yet.
I have DBZBT3 on Wii and by far this is my favorite anime game on any home console. The online and fighting modes are good, but the story mode and alternate story arcs are very well done with options for Japanese VOs. I also have Jump Superstars and thought that it was well done, but Ultimate Stars is a better game. Naruto CONR on Wii is another great Anime game that has a good fighting mechanic and killer online play.
