If you’re in Japan, manga is a word used to refer to comics and cartoons. If you’re outside of Japan, manga tends to refer to the comics that are produced in Japan that follow a specific style. Either way, manga has become extremely popular around the world, especially in Europe and the United States of America. The impact it has made is comparable to the kind made by anime, with people of all ages taking a keen interest due to its sharp and eye catching visuals.
As with a lot of things in the entertainment industry, manga has gone on to find success in other areas too. Like anime, manga has quickly become a theme adopted by game developers around the world in various different formats. Let’s take a look at some of the best manga games to have been produced so far…
