To all the anime fans out there, rejoice! Anime games of your favorite animes are being made available to your Mobile, and there is a lot of details that we have got from Daniel Ahmed, the Senior Analyst at Nico Partners. One of the most well-known game creators, Tencent will be developing these games along with some partners, and the respective manga and anime publishers to make sure that the content is accurate. Let’s know more about it!

Firstly, these games will be under different genres and will have the actual characters that you saw in the anime or manga. As per Daniel Ahmed, three new games will be under the eye of multiple studios under Tencent Games. Some of the more well-known animes that are going to make their game debut are One Punch Man, and One Piece. If you might not know about the animes, we’ll cover you.
The Project is dubbed as Project: Fighter. So most likely, the game is going to be a fighting game, probably a turn-based one, similar to the ones we saw in One Punch Man. Both these titles, that is the game based on One Punch Man and One Piece are available worldwide on release.
Apart from these two titles, Tencent is also working on Digimon: New Century in China. The game is to be made by Qixia Interactive Entertainment, and Bandai Namco Shanghai with Tencent. The game is going to be an RPG.

We do not know when the games will make their debut because no official release date has been announced. But, information on the games will most likely come later on.
More On The Anime
One-Punch Man follows the journey of a bald normal guy, who is monstrously powerful. He likes to be a hero for fun and joins others in his journey through life. The manga and anime are illustrated by One, an author and artist. If you want to know more about him, watch the anime, or read the manga from here.
One Piece is an anime and manga series by Eiichiro Oda. In this anime, we follow the journey of Luffy. He was inspired by his idol, named Red-Haired Shanks. He sets off on a journey to find a treasure and get the title of King of the Pirates. I think it’s better to watch the anime than read the manga. Watch the anime here.
One Piece is a really good anime and has a vast storyline that is immersive. The anime has more than 980 episodes, with more on the way every week. Bandai Manko has also given permission, so you can be assured that the OG characters will be making an appearance.
To see that a major company like Tencent making strides to make games for animes is exciting. Granted, most likely that one feel-good anime might not make it anytime soon as a game. But, it is good to see game companies take to anime games. Happy Gaming!
