What are some of the best Xbox One anime games that have come out in 2020? There are many. Although Xbox has not been as active in developing anime-based games, like other consoles, it’s slowly picking up. That’s great news for people who have grown up with anime and now have a chance to dive into the worlds of Dragon Ball and Blue Dragon via their Xbox One. And those who have not yet found their love for anime can find their entry into the genre through those amazing new Xbox games. So let’s take a look at some of the most exciting anime games that have come out recently. In no particular order, here we go.

1. Dynasty Warriors Anime Spin Offs

Dynasty Warriors has been an immensely popular tactical strategy game, so it’s no wonder that it has inspired several spin-offs. One Piece: Pirate Warriors took inspiration from the anime series Once Piece, and its 4th edition is also available on Xbox One. The Heroic Legend of Arslan, which is based on Yoshiki Tanaka’s fantasy novels of the same name, was released for Xbox One in North America and Europe. Both of these twin spin off games can be purchased via Xbox games pass. 

2. Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ is among the best Xbox games ever released. It’s visually advanced, punchy, and enables you to immerse yourself in the world of the Dragon Ball. The game lives up to the expectations a player might have for the Dragon Ball universe. This fighting game makes you feel like the characters you embodying the game, whether it’s Goku, Frieza, Beerus, or Cell.

And if you want to continue playing while traveling, then just look up how to play Xbox games on an Android phone. All you need is a subscription to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and a compatible controller. The game is available both for Android and iOS.

3. Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom – an Xbox Game adapting Anime Perfectly

This is another great Dynasty Warriors Anime spin off games. But it deserves a special mention because it does a great job of adapting the Anime. The story of the game feels like it could appear in the actual show. The cool thing is that unlike in other Dynasty Warriors games, where you sometimes need to fight hundreds of enemies at a time, you only have about 20 enemies here.
