5 Best Anime Games to Play With Friends 2022


Gaming has always been a group activity from the early days of DnD to the modern FPS multiplayer market. It is always more fun, too, with friends than it is to play solo. But nowadays, with games requiring such demanding hardware and being so expensive, it is pretty rare that you and your friends can play the same game. But all hope is still lost as this list has compiled some anime games aimed towards Co-op players, whether locally or online. They are a mix of free-to-play and less demanding games. They are as follows:

  3. PHANTASY STAR ONLINE 2 NEW GENESIS
  4. Dragon Ball: The Breakers
  5. SoulWorker

Tower Of Fantasy

Platforms: Android, iOS, Microsoft Windows

After the massive success of 2020’s Genshin Impact, some imitators are sure to pop up. At first glance, it is pretty easy to say that Tower of Fantasy is just that, but when you give it some time and see the underlying foundation of the game, it is easy to say it is different in many regards. It is a fast-paced MMORPG where you take control of your player-made avatar and fight through hordes of enemies, dungeons, raids, and other players in the beautiful open world. The story is a mix of Sci-Fi and fantasy as you are a wanderer and can control a mysterious power source; this causes many factions to turn their eyes towards you to use you for their own goals.



The players can equip their characters with three weapons at a given time and change them on the fly. The core combat is rather simplistic, with one main attack button and a few secondary skills, but where it shines in the mechanics surrounding it, like the Phantasia state. Phantasia is the state in which time moves slowly, which allows you to execute quick maneuvers, and you can make a few fast attacks without risks and fire the discharge skill for free, which is unique to each enemy. Other than the story Tower of Fantasy has many different game modes which allow you to do many things, such as go on raids with your friends or go to a separate arena to challenge enemies. It is an entertaining and addicting game, and anime fans of MMORPG should give it a try.


Granblue Fantasy: Versus

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Microsoft Windows

Fighting games nowadays come with crazy combo mechanics and the top string of moves to activate special activities. This has made the whole genre unplayable to modern and newer players. That’s why Granblue Fantasy: Versus feels so different and quick compared to the rest of the fighting games. It is based on Cygame’s massively famous mobile gacha game, which allows it to pull from a large pool of lore and backstory. The playable roster of the base game is relatively small, only featuring eleven characters at launch, but the trade-off is that each character has a different playstyle and exciting lore. Versus mode, couch Co-op is also made quite interesting as each character has various ways and can counter an opposing player.



Combat is paramount for a fighting game, and with Arcsystems handling the game, you feel that the action was fined tuned to perfection. Arcsystems has also made the entire combat system easier for new players. You can now use light, medium and heavy attacks intermixed with special character attacks. The combos are basic and easy to pull off, and the special moves have a dedicated system from which you can use them efficiently. It is the perfect game for one to start their journey of fighting games. The net code also provides a smooth multiplayer experience with minimal lag and low latency. With its beautiful art style and smooth combat, it is a must-play for fans of the original anime.


PHANTASY STAR ONLINE 2 NEW GENESIS

Platforms: PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One & Series X/S, Microsoft Windows, Android, iOS, PlayStation Vita

The Phantasy Star series has been SEGA’s golden boy MMORPG since the PS2 era, but it was unable to keep up with time, leading it to become a somewhat forgotten series. PSO2 New Genesis sets out to fix that with a whole new perspective. New Genesis is a complete reimagining of the original PSO2, meaning it has the same narrative, but everything else has changed. This includes everything in the playable areas, which have been changed from dungeons to a fully explorable open world, and the combat, which can most closely be compared to Sword Arts Online combat.



Combat is now based on six core classes, each with a different weapon and kit. It has also been streamlined to ensure the fresh players have a pleasant time in the early game, and veterans can go a bit wild in the end game. This combat is supported by a new open world that integrates the dungeons of the previous PSO2 base game to be seamless and open. With this, the battles now feel more dynamic as you can encounter enemies while out and about in the open world, and if you don’t want to fight, you can explore your own free will. With its low price tag of free, it is one of the best anime MMORPGs on the market.


Dragon Ball: The Breakers

Platforms: Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 & 5, Microsoft Windows, Xbox One & Series X/S

Dragon Ball is a series that has always focused on bombastic fights and over-the-top power scaling. Yet this focus has caused us to lose the charm found by the earlier weaker characters from the original shows run back in the 80. So when Dragon Ball: The Breakers came out with the premise of playing as the weaker characters and finding a way to defeat the villains of the series, it was pretty surprising and refreshing.

The game’s story starts with us discovering that time seams are occurring and causing villains to pop up everywhere. Dragon Ball: The breaker is an online Co-op title where six civilian players and one villain player duke it out.



The gameplay reflects that we are civilians and can not fight the villain headon. We must run, hide and use distractions to complete our objects to escape and finish the villain. But you are not alone or completely defenseless; you have the aid of the other five players and can use specific skills to escape or stun the villain. As you play, you will fill up a gauge that you can use in times of desperation to power up and use abilities from the iconic characters to give your teammates time to flee or complete the objective. Dragon Ball The Breakers, with its iconic art style of the show and thrilling mechanics, are in for a grand time with your friends.


SoulWorker

Platforms: Microsoft Windows

Long-winded lore and over-cumbersome mechanics have long since become the norm of MMOs. It is surprising to see a game like SoulWorker focus on fun hack-and-slash combat instead of a million different little mechanics to make the game feel different. Soul Worker is an MMORPG set in a destroyed world after a cataclysmic event; you can choose from various base characters with classes attached to them and customize your character. This makes your character feel unique and gives the devs time to flesh out each selectable base character's backstory. The art is also gorgeous, as it uses lighting and atmosphere to provide an end-of-the-world feel.

Combat is the game’s main focus; it is a hack and slashes fun, with a particular skill required to fight some of the more formidable enemies. You can use timed dodges to avoid enemies’ attacks. Regular attacks can be chained into different skills, which can later be combed into regular attacks.



This gives significant combat replayability as you can fine-tune your perfect attack pattern. The online features are also great; they allow you and your friends to form raid parties and even go questing in dungeons together. It is a fun game that changed older mechanics just enough to make them feel fresh while retaining their roots.

I hope this article was able to help you find some anime games to play and enjoy this winter season with your friends. For more anime game-related content, stay tuned.
