If you were to tell the 13 year old me, sat playing Budokai Tenkaichi on the PS2, that one day I could play a Dragonball Z game where I could make my own character and interact with the events of the manga/anime, I'd have snapped your arm off quicker than an Instant Transmission. The original Dragonball Xenoverse struck a chord with many players by essentially being pure, unadulterated fandom wish fulfilment.

The adventures of Pirate Stretch Armstrong hav- no, wait. Monkey D. Luffy. Monkey D. Luffy. Anyway, Monkey D. Elastic Band Man has had a long and storied history in anime and manga. One which, quite frankly, has slipped under our radar. So would this be the game to drag us, kicking and screaming towards the high seas? Eh, probably not.

Video game exclusivity usually get a lot of hate from gamers, particularly when it comes to those from a third-party developer – think Rise of the Tomb Raider and Street Fighter V. So three cheers for Koei Tecmo for bringing their previously exclusive Playstation title, Attack on Titan, to all major platforms.
