Anime Styled Games

Anime Styled Games and Games Based Upon Anime

I made this list in response to a forum question at http://kawaii.io However, the list was so long that it broke the thread, preventing anyone else from replying.

Some formatting may look odd until I have time to reformat this. I just wanted to move it off the forums to try to unbreak the thread in question.

Are you looking for just anime STYLED games with anime-ish graphics? Or games actually BASED upon an existing anime series?



Either way, here are my recommendations ^-^

 

For anime STYLED games check this spoiler (Includes any cases in which the game came first, and later an anime was based upon the game, or games for which no anime exist, but feature anime cutscenes or anime styled artwork)

 

 

For games based on an existing anime series check here

 

 

Also pretty much any visual novel or otome game (these games do not have much gameplay though so if you get bored reading books, do not look into this genre, because that’s essentially what it is, an animated and interactive book) There’s a few discussions ongoing already on this topic. MANY of these get anime based on the game (instead of the other way around) Such as Clannad, Da Capo, Fortune Arterial, Air, Kanon, Shuffle, Fate/Stay/Night, etc, etc.

 

Also I’ve never played so can not “recommend” but I know there are Naruto and DBZ games (I did play an old DBZ game but it wasn’t to my tastes).

 

Also ALL of my recommendations in the spoiler tags have an official english release/translation. I did not include any Japanese only OR Fan Translated titles.

 

If you wish to browse those types of titles not included in my recommendations, please refer to this Wiki:
