A recent poll conducted by “Anime! Anime!” asked its readers which video games they would like to see anime adaptations for. The survey received a total of 1609 responses, with about 35% being male and 60% female.

The survey was conducted between December 3 - 11, and 55% of the respondents were 19 years old or younger, while around 25% were in their 20s.

When it comes to the results, Splatoon took the number one spot, followed by Xenoblade Chronicles in second place, and The Legend of Zelda in third; check out the top 10 list below:

  • Splatoon
  • Xenoblade Chronicles
  • The Legend of Zelda
  • Undertale
  • Fire Emblem: Three Houses
  • Animal Crossing
  • Kingdom Hearts
  • Minecraft
  • Jack Jeanne
  • Buddy Mission Bond

It will be interesting to see if any of these titles make the jump to a full anime adaptation in the future, even if some of them already have a manga series or a small anime sideshow. What would you change in the list?

One one hand i could see Xenoblade as an anime, but on the other hand, making Xenoblade episodic probably wouldnt work to have such a great story as the games have, a shorter anime sure but not likely a long term anime!

It wouldn’t be episodic it would be serialized
