Anime series that are BEGGING to be made into an MMO...........

1. Naruto

Although there are many people who dislike this series because of their infamous fillers, anyone who steps back and looks at it for a second could tell that the story and world of the Naruto Universe could transfer into an MMO, without even having to touch the storyline, or alter anything about the world.

If you have seen any parts of the series, or even heard about , you should already know that within this world there are many major factions, and many different "Classes" of shinobi. Almost a perfect set up for a Faction based game. All players could start out as a trainee ninja, and depending on what "specialization" tree they follow, they can be anything from a medical ninja, to a genjutsu ninja, or even a hybrid between all!

The possiblities with this series are endless.... And since they are making so many pirate MMO's i feel its time to give the ninjas a chance.

 

2. Bleach

Whereas Naruto would transfer smoothly, with bleach there would be a few things which could be minor setbacks in transfering this world into an MMO.

There are two main ways you can really do this,

1. Use a current-day bleach setting and do a faction war between hollow/shinigami. Only setback is how you are going to get the hollow faction to work in game. (With progression and whatnot)

2. Use a Pre-Anime setting, and have the story take place way back when the quincy were still a part of the world. Which could make this a PVE focused game, with a little bit of bitter rivalry between the quincy and Shinigami.

In this game the MOST complicated thing would be figuring out how to get the leveling system to work, because shinigami do not interchange weapons, or really gain many "skills" in their progression. So the only thing which i could say sounds feasable in this situation is to be assigned powers based on what squad you join. And you specialize through "unlocking dormant powers inside you"

I.E. Lets say you became a part of the medical squad.......Once you have reached a certain "rank" , a prompt comes up saying that you have learned a new ability. And when it comes up lets say it gives you a choice of 2-3 different ones you could pick from.

These abilities scale in power when you level, and there is never a need to "upgrade" them.  Which makes it so each person has their own sense of individuality in the game.

 

3. .Hack

Self explanitory. The game is already there they just need to make it.

I know they tried it out in Japan and it didn't work, but what could your really expect from an MMO which wasn't truly an MMO. It was more of a party system in the .hack world.

 

4. Zoids

I know there have been many attempts at a Robot Sci-fi based MMO, but i believe that a Zoids MMO could outdo most of those out there. Story-wise, and gameplay wise. Think about it, you start out as a person, you go through a tutorial, and then after you get to choose your type of zoid. And while you travel, saving cities, and destroying other wandering zoids, you can pick up a variety of parts to upgrade. Making for almost a limitless amount of customization available for your zoid.

Can't you picture it? Epic 100 vs 100 battles of Liger Zeros, and Thundertritops, fighting for control of the world?

 

Well these are just my opinions..........Feel free to ADD whatever you think would make a good addition to this list, and let me know if you like my ideas :)

yea i was considering to write about pokemon i just couldn't figure out how the whole progression thing would work >.<

 

never got too into avatar but from what i know they also have a layout of "Nations" of sort so that could also work pretty well

Robotech should be on your list as well and maybe Outlaw Star with it.   What about Digimon?   There is tons of good anime that would make a decent MMORPG.    Let's hope we see them in the future.  ^_^

I think the only Anime in my opinion that deserves a mmorpg to be made from it is .hack the ps2 games were brilliant and i think a full scale online version would be great.

@Teala there is already a Digimon mmorpg out but it is not yet in english also there is a Dragonball Z mmorpg being made

Robotech or bust. Firstly, I know the series we saw in the U.S. that was all classified as "Robotech" was not from the same series, they were edited and made to fit together. So with that out of the way I'm not sure in which of the 3 generations it would be better to start in, I'd go with the Invid series with folks battling on cyclones when the mecha-planes weren't that prevelant. To me it just seems easier to roll with than say the first generation where the majority of battles are in 50 plus foot destroids and veritechs zooming through the skies.

 

Although I'd love being in the first generation and fighting along side of Rick Hunter and folding out into the middle of bfe and fighting my way back. Several different servers could be set up that would be progressive and the storyline kept moving and followed the series. Maybe a few servers dedicated to each generation that really never progressed.

All I know is, Robotech gave me my insatiable thirst for transformable giant robots that beat the snot out of each other. Even transformers didn't do for me what robotech did back when I was a lil punk.

 

I still remember when Jetfire came out for transformers I was the first person in my group of friends to point out they ripped off robotech.

90% of non school-based MMOs could be made into an MMO.  things like lucky-star and harui wouldn't work, but all the ones not in that sub-group of course have rich backstories with lots of fun magic and explosions ect ect.

I really wish someone would make a Naruto MMORPG, that would be the best thing, adventuring as a shinobi in the world of Naruto, training learning jutsus, developing your own fighting style and lighting fast gameplay, but it would take the right developers to perfect it.

Pokemon wouldnt be hard, Just take the current game make it 3d. make it so a lot of people can be in the same area, you lvl up your pokemon, you train them, you battle them, thats all Pokemon is. Pretty easy to do if they desides to do it.

They have already made a Monster rancher MMO, and a few gave a shot at a robot mmo, but what i am really looking for is something different.

I.E. Bleach,Naruto, or Kiba or something along those lines

 

lmao it would be funny to play a lucky-star based mmo.... What do you do? Play as an otaku in everyday life xD

Well i could see Pokemon being a pure pvp game :O

 

which may sound weird but if you think about it its probably the best way to go.

 

You start out with one of the basic pokemons,

and you do competitions/tourneys to earn new pokemon?
