  • Attack on Titan 2

    Attack on Titan 2 does more than letting you play through the first 50 chapters of the manga. Instead of playing as an established character like Eren Yeager or Mikasa Ackerman, the hack-and-slash game lets you create and customize an original anime character of your own. You'll be able to experience the amazing, yet, dangerous world of Attack on Titan as the latest recruit of the Survey Corps. The game does an incredible job of recreating the series' larger-than-life battles against the monstrous Titans, while also making you feel like you're just part of the gang.

  • The Naruto: Ultimate Ninja games were some of the best anime fighting games in recent years. The unbelievable cel-shaded graphics and dynamic fighting system fit the Naruto series beautifully. Now, Nintendo Switch owners can play all three games with all their DLC content, like extra missions and alternative costumes. It's not only an entertaining fighting game, but a perfect way to re-experience Naruto from his childhood days to adulthood.

  • Despite its relatively short lifespan, My Hero Academia has managed to become a cultural zeitgeist. So, it's no surprise to see the superhero Shonen Jump series receive its own video game for the Nintendo Switch. My Hero One's Justice is a 3D arena fighter populated by all the great heroes (and villains) from the anime. The game does a fine job of replicating all the bombastic quirks into its flashy one-on-one combat system. It's fast, fun, and beautiful too. Definitely a game for fans of My Hero Academia to check out.

  • Nintendo Switch owners disappointed by the lack of Marvel vs. Capcom games on their console now have the wonderful alternative of Dragon Ball FighterZDragon Ball FighterZ carries the same exhilarating 2D action of the early Marvel vs. Capcom games, but presents it through the chaotic world of Dragon Ball Z. What makes Dragon Ball FighterZ really remarkable is its cel-shaded graphics. After taking one peak at the game, you'll swear you're watching the anime itself.
