I bet you’ve pondered, “I bet Kill La Kill would make a superb beat ’em-up.” We all have. Many, many times. These 3 anime were BORN to be made into a video game (and yes, I include Kill La Kill).
|First off I need to address my baby that is the series Kill la Kill. I loved this anime, my colleagues at Viewster love this anime and most of the anime fanbase loves this show. It isn’t for everyone mind you, but it still has a solid performance. This show though has been on fans radar for a game adaptation for quite some time. Most have pushed it as a potential candidate for a fighter or beat ‘em-up sort of game. Even Platinum Games director expressed interest in creating an actually Kill la Kill game in the future.|
|Secondly we got Mirai Nikki, the true Yonder Simulator. Okay sure, Yandere Simulator is a very real game that is being made. It too focuses on the Yandere theme. What I’m talking about is a game with survival-horror mechanics that plays out like the anime does. Maybe you play a character with an obsessive, murderous lover or maybe you don’t. I think a game just based purely on Mirai Nikki itself would be enough to push some sales.I firmly believe a horror/survivial focused game would be the best course of action. Everyone is a fan of things that go bump in the night; the spooky ones.|
|Finally, and obviously, Keijo!!!. This anime was bound to pop-up on this list and I am not afraid to say it. Keijo, the butt-bashing-sports anime that swept the globe needs an adaptation. Of course the anime has a promotion going on with the other popular game Dead or Alive Extreme 3 for swimsuits. It unfortunately lacks its own dedicated title and this should be remedied by the fine folks over at Team Ninja. You can thank me later for the best-selling game idea. Keep it sporty and maybe just take the Soft Engine from Dead or Alive Extreme 3 and add it to the Keijo adaptation; for them jiggle physics.|
