im sorry, nobody talking about it? pretty sure it was top of the box office in US one week and second the next. The movie netted 500 million globally.....yea NOBODY is talking about it lol.

If you live in your own bubble that's fine but its pretty fuckin huge.
video game =/= movie, anime series.

One punch man anime is a success, but nobody is talking about the fighting game anymore, see what I mean here?

Aniplex is the North American licensee of the series. Yes they're owned by Sony but they don't own the IP, they just license it from Ufotable who produced the series.

It's like saying Harmony Gold owned Macross.
No, Ufotable is one of three companies that's part of the production committee. Aniplex, Sheuiesha, and Ufotable. Anixplix is one of the main production companies, not just the US licenser. It's not like Harmony Gold, because Aniplex is a Japanese company that produces and then sometimes also releases in America. Something they've been doing for about a decade. If anything it's like Pioneer from back in the day. So they do actually having a controlling stake in the anime.

Like ManaByte said, Demon Slayer is a whole different beast and that One Punch Man game was fucking garbage too. :messenger_tears_of_joy:

I don't think anyone with taste would say One Punch Man is garbage.

But I really think you are overestimating how good a solid anime game is going to sell. Even DragonBall games selling a million+ is great. No matter how popular Demon Slayer is(and it is) there's no guarantee it's going to sell gangbusters. It will probably do pretty well.

It’ll probably be the biggest PS5 game in October that doesn’t take up 250GB on the SSD.

The anime is godlike.

You will have a great moment just like with the best ones (Dragon Ball, One Piece, Jojo, Hunter X Hunter, Golden Kamui, One Punch Man, SNK...).

Kimetsu no Yaiba deserves totally all his praise and his success, because it is so good.
Watched the first episode yesterday, it was good shit.

It's weird to see that Aniplex belongs to Sony, but Sony Music. I understand it's because they have a music part, but I think it would make more sense to put their anime part under Sony pictures and their games part under SIE/PlayStation Studios.

Because there are cases like this one, where Sony could have published this game worldwide but they asked Sega to do it. Looks great btw, CyberConnect are very talented regarding visuals.

Well, it is published by Sega. Their games - that are not Switch exclusives - have been consistenly on Xbox since the 2 years ago or something.

I was going to get the physical release, but I really wanted the digital deluxe extras (especially the PSN avatars) so...

Story bits look good. Shame they couldn't do better for gameplay than a typical anime arena fighter though. The potential of what could have been.

Another Niche weebo game which will be dead within months.

Yes, like Demon Souls Remake, Re8 and Hatched and Clank. Already forgotten.
And i will not mention fps games.

Man, listen, insulting fans of anime games will not make you a better person.

Dead game for many, alive for me. That's what matters.

Really looks like a storm clone, which isn't a bad thing since I love the storm games.

But this game will probably have an awful online again, the netcode on the naruto storm games has always been abysmal. It's really a shame because I love Storm 4 and I would still be playing it regularly if the online was decent, but most of the time you have like a whole second of delay.

Playing with a HUGE input lag, it's really not fun at all and ruins the gameplay, and they never improved it, even after so many games, I wish they would switch to rollback and update storm with it :messenger_frowning_

Was more interesting than any cut of KnY which is just another "consistent" animation show that does nothing interesting.

Game looks mid considering what they could actually do with it.
Well that's because the actual fights has not started yet . It's only fodders so far , the end of Mugen train movie is a glimpse of what's coming .
