It’s no secret that the PLITCH team is made up of a lot of nerds and geeks. Besides gaming, some of us share a passion for anime and manga, so we thought it would be a cool idea to look at games that were inspired by manga/anime. In case you’re missing some favorites like Attack on Titan or Dragonball on our list, don’t worry – there will be a part 2 coming your way next week!


Naruto


Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm

Some of you probably grew up following the adventures of Konohagakure’s bravest ninja – Naruto Uzumaki, bearer of the nine-tailed fox. Ever since he was a young boy, Naruto was an outcast because everyone feared the destructive powers of the fox.

Still, Naruto never gives up on his dream of becoming Hokage – the supreme ninja of his village. The sequel Naruto Shippuden follows him and his friends as they grow into adults and fight to save the world in the Fourth Shinobi World War.

Several Naruto games were released over the year and PLITCH supports five of them from the Ultimate Ninja STORM series. Step into the shoes of your beloved characters and relive your favorite Naruto and Shippuden arcs as you fight against enemies with powerful Jutsu attacks. If you ever wanted to be a ninja, this is your chance!


Yu-Gi-Oh!


Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist : Link Evolution

Similar to Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh! is one of the most popular Shonen titles and probably needs no introduction. The story revolves around Yugi Mutou, a shy boy who loves games and is often the target of bullies.

After solving an ancient puzzle, his body becomes a host to a mysterious spirit that has the personality of a gambler. Now, whenever he’s threatened, the other Yugi challenges his foes to a dangerous game where the loser will be facing a dark punishment.

The trading card game remains popular to this day (our streamer and marketing manager Chi is making sure of that – she has over 2000 cards) and the various videogames enable fans to experience the game in a different format.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist and Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution are both PLITCHable and let you build your own deck of cards with which you battle it out against other duelists. With our PLITCH codes for the games, you always have an ace up your sleeve.


Demon Slayer


Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no Yaiba- The Hinokami Chronicles

The 23-volume-long manga Demon Slayer has risen in popularity in the past couple of years, especially with the release of its anime. After the family of the siblings Tanjirō and Nezuko was attacked by demons, Nezuko turned into a demon and Tanjirō does everything in his power to find a cure for his sister.

The game Demon Slayer – Kimetsu no Yaiba: The Hinokami Chronicles allows you to choose between the adventure mode where you play as Tanjirō and get to experience the story from the manga/anime and the versus mode which is the perfect choice if you want casual fights. Match up characters from the franchise for some exhilarating battle action. With our PLITCH codes, you can customize the game and make it easier or harder for a unique experience.


Digimon


Digimon Survive

Okay, okay, technically Digimon started as virtual pets which were meant to be a counterpart to Tamagotchi but since there’s also an anime as well as various manga, we thought we'd include it anyway.

The story focuses on creatures who live in the “Digital World,” a parallel universe that has its origins in the Earth’s various communication networks. In the first season of the anime, a group of friends gets transported there and makes friends with the Digimon.

Various videogames were inspired by the franchise over the years and two of them are supported by PLITCH. Become a cyber detective or hacker in Digimon Story Cyber Sleuth: Complete Edition and collect over 300 Digimon to create an unbeatable team. In the hybrid visual novel and tactical RPG Digimon Survive, you’ll face dangerous battles in a world full of mystery and have to try to stay alive – which won’t be a problem with our codes!


BLEACH


BLEACH Brave Souls

Another manga classic that enjoys great popularity to this day is BLEACH. Its main character, Ichigo Kurosaki, obtains the powers of the Soul Reaper and henceforth has to defend humans from evil spirits and guide souls to the afterlife.

Besides the world of humans, various parallel dimensions exist in this universe, among them one where Shinigami live and are organized as a military-led training center. We won’t go further into detail in case you haven’t read the manga or watched the anime yet.

If you’ve finished the story in whatever format and are craving more content, how about playing BLEACH Brave Souls with PLITCH? Build a team of your favorite BLEACH characters and take them into battle against some of the most fearsome foes in the series! With our Godmode code, you’ll take out the villains in no time.


We hope you like our selection of games and anime/manga. Some of us are now certainly in the mood to rewatch our favorite anime.

Happy Gaming!
