Anime games are of course always a hot topic of conversation among game fans with these Japanese cartoon character designs.
Recently, anime game designs have been widely applied by game developers outside Japan itself, such as Genshin Impact made by MiHoYo from China.
Due to the popularity of the anime design, JRPG games are increasingly being marketed on well-known game platforms such as Steam and Android or Apple game platforms through Google Play and the App Store for iOS.
However, most of these anime games are still region locked or can only be accessed via a special server, which is usually a Japanese server. Therefore, there are special platforms that provide region locked games, such as QooApp and TapTap.

5 Most Popular Anime Games for February 2022
Attack On Titan Brave Order
The first anime game that is still hot and warm is an adaptation of Hajime Isayama's manga series with the same title, namely Attack on Titan.
For information, Attack on Titan has also been adapted into anime for 4 seasons, with the most recent season being The Final Season which is currently airing.
The anime game Attack on Titan Brave Order, which was released on February 11, 2022, adapted the main plot of Attack On Titan, from the appearance of the Colossal Titan on Wall Maria and several plots after that.
This anime game also carries a Turn-Based RPG, which means you will fight the enemies in the form of titans by waiting for the turn of the character you are playing.
For example, when you fight the Mindless Titan, the party you brought at that time will appear. Each party will consist of 3 members that you can arrange before the battle. However, for battles determined by the story, the 3 characters will be automatically selected by the game.
Because this game is turn-based, you have to wait your turn and also wait for the character's skills to be fully loaded before they can be used.
Because this game is still region locked or can only be accessed through the Japanese server, you have to download this game from a platform like QooApp or TapTap to play it. Of course, this game is still in Japanese entirely.
To make it clearer, you can watch the first 13 minutes of the Attack on Titan Brave Order gameplay developed by Enish Inc. via the following video.
