Works That Can Be Adapted Into A Fighting Game — Gintama

Gintama is one of the funniest manga and anime franchises ever, which I believe could be adapted into a serious fighting game.

I recently posted an article on how I believe the Magic the Gathering card game could be adapted into a serious fighting game, not an arena-type one like Kill La Kill or My Hero Academia because it has almost 30 years' worth of lore.

I thought of another work that would also make a great conversion to a fighting game, while maintaining its core comedic elements, Gintama. This work is created by Hideaki Sorachi and it originally started out as a manga, which ran from 2003 until 2019, then received adaptations across multiple mediums of entertainment, with anime being the widely known adaptation.

Video games are the second most widely known adaptation of Sorachi’s original manga.

The mobile game The King of Fighters All Star, which is developed by Netmarble and published by SNK, had two collaborations with Gintama.

There is a lot of material to draw from when making a functional Gintama fighting game, whether it’s for serious tournament play or for simple fan service, as the Odd Jobs Gang has gone on many adventures, which led the gang into a series of major battles.

There are many characters to choose from, too, that can fit the game roster, with plenty more left for future DLC.
