Anime episodes and movies based on their Konami game counterparts

March 26, 2015

The son becomes the father, and the father becomes the son. A quote from the famous Superman movies we all know and love. Since then the gaming market has made multiple attempts to make the  man of steel do a proper transition to the living room game console. Did you also know that quite a number of Konami games were also ported into the world of anime episodes? Indeed, and you probably wouldn't have ever guessed which ones.

Yu-Gi-Oh! is a given, that's for sure, as it originally made its debut as a manga from the Shueisha's Weekly Sh┼Źnen Jump magazine in Japan back in September of 1996, and ever since then has had one anime after another made for it, as well as one of the most popular card game franchises in existence. Selling well over 25 billion cards worldwide in the process.

But let's take a good look at a few other off the wall titles you may recognize that had anime transitions done for them.


Ganbare Goemon

He was a bit of a mischief maker, but the lovable hero Goemon and his sidekick Ebisumaru even have their own anime series. Goemon made his first appearance on the arcade format back in the early 1980s, and since then has had multiple games on different platforms such as MSX, Super Famicom / SNES, and even on the Nintendo 64 system. If you've never tried the Super Nintendo release, I highly recommend that you do. It's one of those games that's hard to put down once you start playing it.


Dragon Collection

Is it a role playing game, or is it a card game? Why not both, as the Dragon Collection was released for the social networking platform back in 2010, and since then has had a manga adaptation made for it, along with an anime series, which by the way has just ended a few days ago on March 23rd. Still, if you can get your hands on this puppy, then do so since it too is an addicting game that's hard to put down.


Twinbee

Ahh, the lovable chestnut and cute fuzz ball known as Twinbee. It seems that Konami has a niche for making cute shooter games, such is the case also with Parodius. For those of you who haven't had a chance to try this one out, I highly recommend you use the opportunity, as it is available for both the NES and SNES consoles just for starters. The series in Japan was so popular that it even warranted a proper anime, which is pretty well made I have to add. So far I haven't yet seen either an English dub, or English sub version for this, but if you know of one leave a comment where it is in the comment section below.


Zone of the Enders

Moving on from cute shooter games, to something of the more futuristic variety. Zone of the Enders makes the grade as one of the best mecha shooter titles I've seen in a long time. Taking place in the 22nd century, human kind has colonized the planet of Mars, with an additional space colony hovering high above in orbit around Jupiter. ZOE first made its debut on the PS2, with a side mission landing on the Game Boy Advance for those who want to take the experience on the road with them.

You can also get the HD collection for PS3 and Xbox 360 if your looking to upgrade your set. So what a better way to celebrate such a great series, than to have anime episodes and movie made for it?
