Best Anime Games on Steam

Persona 5 Strikers

Persona 5 Strikers is currently out on steam since February 23. The Persona series is one of the best anime games on steam right now with also a good Anime series belonging to the Persona universe. It’s an action role playing game that is heavily story driven with amazing combat gameplay animations and an awesome storyline, which is something worth getting if you’re into this kind of genre.

Tales (video game series)

Tales is another single-player story driven game which has been praised for its story and characters it gives us. Tales games like, Tales of Berseria, Tales of Vesperia and their new upcoming Tales of Arise.

The game offers long amount of playtime and comes in a two part series and as well with other DLCs available which the 2nd game being Ni no Kuni Wrath of the White Witch.

Code Vein

Code Vein was one of the best anime games on steam during its launch year, and probably still is now. It’s an action role-playing game set in a post-apocalyptic world where Humans are infected by a strange virus transforming them into crazily strong monsters. Code Vein was widely played on release earning its title for being an “Anime Dark Souls game” and comes with a really good character customization which received a lot of positive feedback.

Sadly the popularity slowly died out ever since the game stopped receiving new updates, but it’s still a great game to buy on sale. You can play with your friends since it supports co-op and challenge the bosses this game has to offer while enjoying the really good character customization.

Octopath Traveler

Octopath Traveler is a 2D turn-based platformer RPG anime game developed by Square Enix and probably one of the only best Anime games on steam for 2D platformers. The game is about an adventure with eight heroes of different professions that you can pick. The game follows a classic 2D pixelated graphic look but with modern graphical shading and animations making the game have a unique sense of visuals and gameplay compared to other titles.

Captain Tsubasa

Captain Tsubasa is a new Anime soccer game released in 2020, it’s actually one of the first and probably the only proper Anime soccer game you could find on steam, which also comes with a full story mode. If you like soccer Anime like Inazuma eleven, you’ll enjoy this as well.

Captain Tsubasa is a strong arcade type of game with “power skills” and other exaggerated fiction, so you shouldn’t expect anything like FIFA 2021, or PES quality physics and playstyle. With that said, Captain Tsubasa is a still a fun and entertaining game for any Anime fans out there that love soccer games in arcade fashion.

Eternal Return: Black Survival

Eternal Return is one of the only best anime games on steam for being a Moba and Battle Royale inspired game available which has been growing in popularity since 2020, players coming from Moba and Battle Royale games would have some interest with Eternal Return due to the resemblance between the two genres.

Controlling your character, spawning into a post-apocalyptic world, setting out to craft/build your items while trying to be the last one standing is pretty fun, especially all the cute and epic looking Anime characters Eternal Return has to offer.

Phantasy Star Online 2

Phantasy Star Online 2 is the current popular MMORPG on steam right now, although being an old game, it recently got released on steam last year for the west after eight years, yes that long. The gameplay is probably outdated for anyone seeking next generation gameplay, although the game still contains a large player base due to the cosmetics and other Anime content PS02 has to offer for character customization

I was a pretty active anime MMORPG player back in 2011/2012, and Eden Eternal was my go-to. I’ve been trying to find a similar MMORPG that I could get into as much as I was into EE but to no luck. and no I don’t like the Aura Kingdom either so not going to play that lol
