Tokyo Xanadu eX+
As an enhanced edition of the 2015 game Tokyo Xanadu, Tokyo Xanadu eX+ was released two years later. If you love JRPGs like Persona, then you’ll love this one. Playing as Kou Tokisaka, who lives in Morimiya City, you need to travel through the mysterious realm known as Eclipse, where you battle monsters with your allies. This story-driven game has more dungeons than its original, with brand new playable characters and monsters to defeat.
Do you love side scrollers? Then Fight’N Rage is perfect for you. This ‘90s style beat ‘em up will take you back in time with a classic anime style. In this game, you can choose from three characters to start with and unlock another 20 more as you battle through a world where mutants enslave humans. But it’s up to you to stop them by fighting with different combos. Best of all, you can play this game alone or with up to three friends in local co-op mode.
Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!!
Arc System Works is renowned for its successful fighting games, and Arcana Heart 3 LOVE MAX!!!!! is no exception. In this anime fighting game, you play as angels of the Arcana in various modes. Not only is there a story mode, but there is an additional short story for the Angels and an after-story for you to play. You can even play online in multiplayer PvP matches and rank on the leaderboard if you feel competitive.
Gal*Gun: Double Peace
Everyone loves a dating sim, and Gal*Gun: Double Peace is a hilarious take on the genre. In this game, you play as Houdai, who now has every girl in the school infatuated with him. However, there’s a catch. He needs to find the love of his life by the end of the day, or he will be left forever alone. Of course, this isn’t like your average visual novel dating sim, so rail shooter fans will love this game.
As our second JRPG in our bento box, Dusk Diver originally came out in 2019. In this anime beat-’em-up, you can play as Yumo, a high school girl who fights against Phantoms who invade the human world. Set in the tourist hotspot of Taipei Ximending, Yumo can explore the town or slay the Phantoms in the mysterious world of Youshanding.
Spirit Hunter: Death Mark
If you love Japanese horror games, then you’ll love Spirit Hunter: Death Mark, a dark visual novel with a rich story. Named for the grotesque birthmark that appears on certain people's bodies, these victims are cursed to die a horrifying death. In this game, it’s up to you to protect those who bear the Death Mark, but it’s a lot more difficult when you need to save yourself from death too.
CHAOS CODE -NEW SIGN OF CATASTROPHE-
As another game from Arc System Works, CHAOS CODE -NEW SIGN OF CATASTROPHE- is a brilliant 2D fighter with 16 characters to choose from. There are seven different ways you can play this game, with a rich story mode that is absolutely insane. But if you’re tired of playing against NPCs, you can head over to online matches where you can fight with others over the net.
Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story
Do you like JRPGs and management sims? If so, you may love Valthirian Arc: Hero School Story. In this game, you play as the principal of a school that is suited to warriors and mages, and it is up to you to train them. You can craft your own weapons and armour for your students while navigating a realm on the brink of war.
Spirit Hunter: NG
If you enjoy Spirit Hunter: Death Mark, then you should also consider its companion game: Spirit Hunter: NG, where you play as a young man looking for his missing sister. You don’t need to play Death Mark to enjoy NG, as both have separate storylines, but if you enjoy horror visual novels, then there’s no doubt you’ll be missing out.
GUILTY GEAR Xrd -SIGN-
We can’t have an anime list without GUILTY GEAR Xrd -SIGN-, the first of the Guilty Gear Xrd games, -SIGN- was originally released in arcades across Japan, but since 2015, it has been available on Steam. Each character has their own storyline, but you can also battle online with others and learn a variety of combos to improve your skills in this fast-paced fighting game.
These are only a few of our favourites in the Bento Bundle and only a taste of what Fanatical has to offer. So why not get them while they’re hot?
