3 Best Anime Hack and Slash Games 2023

3 Best Anime Hack and Slash Games 2023


Games have come a long way from the simplicity of early 90s platformers. We now have sprawling open-world games with so many mechanics and systems that you will need an online guide to get them. That’s why a particular genre has stayed a player favorite for doing the opposite. Hack and Slash games have been in the market for a long time, but they were always relegated to franchise games; that has changed in recent years as more companies are making them with original stories and combat. This has led to the creation of some of the most enjoyable anime hack-and-slash, some of which are mentioned below.

Persona 5 Strikers

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows

Atlus, in recent years, has seen a considerable amount of popularity and praise due to its Persona Series, which merges the press-turn combat system of the SMT series (Shin Megami Tensei) with a daily life simulator. So it was a shock to many when Atlus announced that a new spin-off game of Persona 5 would be coming. Many had thought that It would be an easy cash grab on a famous franchise, but Persona 5 Strikers proved to be a good Hack and Slash game with its roots in the persona and SMT series. It was the first time fans could play as the Phantom Thieves on the Nintendo and PC.

Combat is top-notch in presentation, as the animation flow nicely, and the style of Persona 5 is not lost. The action follows the core of other hack-and-slash games but with some changes which give it a unique feel, such as using the persona’s mid-battle to cast spells to take advantage of enemy weakness. This is backed up by the excellent writing of the cast, who make a return from the original game as they set out on a summer trip around Japan.



But soon, things start to go south as entire cities are now falling under the influence of the ubcounuius minds, and it is up to the Phantom Thieves to save the day accompanied by their new mysterious ally. Persona 5 Strikers is a fun game with a memorable cast and a great follow-up to 2017’s Persona 5, which anime fans will undoubtedly enjoy.


God Eater 3

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows

Bandai Namco’s God Eater 3 can easily be considered by many a Monster Hunter clone. That may have been the case for the previous entries. God Eater 3 sets itself apart from the rest of the competition. Unlike the earlier games, it was developed from the base up for PC and consoles. It features a beautiful anime art style with great visuals. The premise of God Eater is a bleak one. Humanity was mostly destroyed in a cataclysmic event that brought about the birth of monsters known as Aragami, impervious to conventional weaponry. This prompted society (or what remained of it) to find a way to combat this new threat, they were able to find a way, but it was only possible by using Aragami themselves in weapons known as God Arcs.



The third installment picks up after the events of the first two games as you are a prisoner who has to fight Aragami to win his freedom. This will lead you to a thrilling tale of sacrifices and deceptions and how God Arcs are truly created. Combat is the most fan part of the game as it is easy to learn but challenging to master. You can choose between multiple types of long and close-range weapons, each having a distinct feel. You can easily just button-mash your way to victory like in a Muso game or use the tools and mechanics to take down the Aragami with finesse and style. It is a fun and enjoyable game whose combat makes you feel like a protagonist. Anime fans of the original show will undoubtedly find the game enjoyable.


Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows

Neptunia x Senran Kagura: Ninja Wars, to put it simply, is a fan service game, and it is a good one at that. It features characters from both the series and a brand-new plot to fully use the crossover. It sees the core cast of each game make an appearance and the interactions between them are fun to watch and stay true to their traits. The highlight is, no doubt, Neptune, she is the only character in the game that knows it is a crossover, and she breaks the fourth wall multiple times, which results in hilarious moments as none of the other characters know what she is talking about. The two groups will unite forces to deal with the new steam legion led by the infamous You Gamer.



Combat is a mix match of the best aspects of both series. It is a liner hack and slash game, with a certain amount of depth in the combat as the players can equip up to 4 skills on each of the skill slots, which then can be triggered to extend combos or execute powerful finisher attacks, which are iconic to each character. This and the varied cast of characters make the gameplay exciting until the game ends. The extra quests and side missions also help in that regard. It is an enjoyable game that fans of the series should no doubt play.
