You probably noticed the fact that I jammed anime and FPS into the same sentence. That's not a typo: that's what I meant. Let me explain.

A few months ago, I decided to revisit my love for anime by watching shows on Crunchyroll and while doing that, something else hit me: I was reminded of my time playing Shogo: Mobile Armor Division when I was younger. Its mix of anime with FPS gameplay was unlike anything I've ever seen before, and it was a fine example of an unusual combo that proved to be surprisingly good (think PB&J.)

Monolith Productions proved that it was possible to successfully merge two genres that normally were mutually exclusive together, and Shogo was a very good game. I'm a huge fan of anime and FPS games, and I can't help but wonder what would happen if another developer took a jab at mixing anime and FPS elements.

What do you guys think? Is it too ridiculous to be true?

NOTE: This is a repost from a GameSpot.com forum thread I made.

I guess there are things like Gunz, S4, Exteel (dead), not sure there's really a whole lot else in that regard. I guess it depends what you're asking for from an anime/FPS. If it's just the art style, that shouldn't be much of an obstacle.

Edit: Also Oni, if you haven't played that, maybe give it a look. I'd love to see a new game like that.

to me anime, is just an art style. it never was a genre. you can mix anime with any game genre.

i guess anime can be a genre, because it usually something with an extra dimension of fantasy. like s4 league, the flips and jumps are something that normal american game developers would never implicate in there games, but since s4 is an anime style game it had that.

Well it would definitely add more variety over the terrorists and bland deserts plaguing FPS games these days, but the market is so oversaturated with FPS games, do we really need even more?

Perhaps an anime FPS could shake things up a little bit in terms of gameplay and audiovisual presentation.
