Get ready, Hunter x Hunter fans! A new fighting game based on the popular manga and anime series is in the works. Developed by Eighting and published by Bushiroad Games, the game is officially titled Hunter x Hunter: Nen x Impact.
Details about the platforms and release date are still under wraps, leaving fans eager to find out more. While the specific type of fighting game it will be remains uncertain, the promotional material shows characters such as Gon, Netero, and Leorio gearing up for battle.
If you’re unfamiliar with the series, Hunter x Hunter is a shonen that follows the story of Gon, a young boy who aspires to become a Hunter like his absent father. The series is known for its compelling plot and dynamic characters.
Eighting, the developer behind this new release, has a strong track record with fighting games, having worked on popular titles such as the Naruto series, DNF Duel, and the Marvel vs. Capcom games. They have also recently contributed to the development of Pikmin 4. While Hunter x Hunter games have not traditionally made their way to the West, fans are hopeful for a localization of this new title.
