Can games be adapted into anime?
« on: November 08, 2019, 11:58:45 PM »
Hi, everyone i'm back with some more questions that i want to know this time i want to know if say your an anime writer or manga artist and you wanted to put a game character or put a game into your anime story or make an anime adaptation about it now i know some people will think it's a crazy idea or an impossible idea but i want to know is, is it possible for it to be achieved does an anime story have to be popular or have an interesting idea of incorporating the idea into the anime without making the collaboration a mess hopefully you guys have an answer to this.

Well Angry Birds was made into a movie, and I'm sure that's not the only game that was adapted into a movie or anime.

There is no impossible in writing, in terms of "is X going to be popular" or "is X an interesting idea". One should think in terms of "how can I made X popular", and "how can I make X look interesting". It's all down to the skill of the writer and how they present the idea.

The problem is more an issue of copyright I would have thought, like can you actually use someone elses character like Mario or something in your story without getting sued by the creators. For writing a fanfic or something then usually it's not an issue (correct me if I'm wrong), but if you're leaning into making money from the idea then you going to hit copyright issues for sure I'm imagining. Each company and creator has different standards about what they will allow to be done with their intellectual property.

On board with Suuper here. After all, there are plenty of successful adaptations of properties from one format to another. We often see this in the form of books getting turned into movies, and while that can go either way, it's clearly possible for it to go right.

For a specific Game Into Anime case, look no further than the hyper successful adaptation of Pokemon. What started as a straight up video game quickly took over the world thanks in massive part to the success of the anime based on the games. From my own personal memories of growing up in the 90's, the pokemon anime was the first wave by a country mile. You couldn't track down a kid who didn't watch the show. Fewer actually bought the trading cards, and fewer still actually had the gameboys to play the games, but the love of the show that the games inspired was pretty much universal.

Of course! I don't have a lot of information on copyright but there is lots of fan-fiction out there, a great example I've discovered was Final Fantasy X and X-2. Lots of Yuna and Tidus shorts on the net and I can spend hours on end reading them without even knowing the time was flying.

Need For Speed, Doom, Marvel series etc are some examples. I'd still love to see Metroid be turned into a movie, however.

Metroid is a hard nut to crack movie-wise it feels. We saw how bad it could get if you try to add too much story to Metroid with Other M. You'd need some crack writing to really pull the quiet loneliness of the Metroid games out and into a film. It would almost have to be a reformatted western.

I am sure it can be made into an anime.

God Eater was made into an anime after all. Besides, if a anime can be made into a video game, why not the other way around?
