Bandai Namco Leisure and Spike Chunsoft’s Soar Power is the most recent online game that includes one of the legendary stables of manga characters ever. However it’s removed from the primary and nowhere close to one of the best. Video video games based mostly on Shonen Soar publications go all the best way again to the Famicom, which is definitely the place a lot of the crossover titles lived till comparatively just lately. Whereas among the finest Shonen Soar video games have predominantly landed on Nintendo platforms (Shout out to Soar Final Stars), there are many high quality titles to select from on PlayStation consoles.
Whereas it’s essential to do not forget that with licensed anime video games you’re by no means going to get that prime shelf expertise (aside from Soar Final Stars, shout out to the GOAT), there’s nonetheless loads of enjoyable available right here. Battle Stadium D.O.N. gained’t maintain a candle to Tremendous Smash Bros. by any estimation, for instance, however that doesn’t imply a bunch of 4 anime dorks gained’t have an excellent afternoon collectively huddled in entrance of a PS2 (or GameCube) at an anime conference.
As you could have gathered from my cheeky asides, it is a PlayStation-centric record. That implies that any recreation not obtainable on a PlayStation platform doesn’t qualify. That guidelines out a lot of the crossover titles, alas. So I opted to snag what I really feel are prime examples for singular Shonen Soar properties to beef it up, and these inclusions aren’t essentially the “finest” general video games (that caveat is there largely to justify Dragon Ball FighterZ being neglected), however ones I really feel encapsulate the Shonen Soar vibe probably the most.
With out additional rambling, right here’s the record:
Now for the enjoyable half. These have been my favourite examples of Shonen Soar video games. That mentioned, readers, I’m questioning what you all assume. What are among the different Shonen Soar video games on the market you like, and why? Are there any Preventing for One Piece stans on the market? Let me know within the feedback.
