There are a lot of anime IP games out there and many are also scheduled for release this year. From DBZ Sparking: Zero to Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash, it’s always fun and exciting for fans to get a game based on their favorite series. And the same goes for fans of the Baki the Grappler series and its sequels. Fans have been waiting for a while to see a new Baki game and with the advent of 2024, the excitement for a new title is all there. So, when’s the new Baki Hanma game for PC, Xbox Series X/S, and PS5 releasing? Well, that’s what this guide is here for.
Anime or manga-related IP games always tend to scale from godawful to great. But it’s also popular with many publishers due to just how massive and loyal fans of these IPs tend to be. However, popularity can only go so far if games are bad. One Piece is one of, if not the biggest, manga series of all time, but when it comes to games, all of them based on the One Piece universe range from bad to average. Dragon Ball Z, on the other hand, has some amazing titles like Dragon Ball Z FighterZ and Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3. With so many anime games around, it’s only evident that Baki fans would want to know about a new game related to the series. So, here’s everything you need to know about the same.
Baki Hanma PC, PS5 & Xbox Series X game release date: When it will be available
As of now, we are yet to hear any announcements related to a Baki game. From what we have seen so far, there doesn’t seem to be any Baki Hanma game in development, and that’s certainly a bummer for many. But it is what it is, and it seems like fans would have to wait a while before there is even a chance of getting a Baki game.
The last major Baki game was released back in 2017. Called Baki the Grappler: Ultimate Championship, it was a fighting game that was only made available for mobile. Moreover, Bandai Namco Entertainment, which published the game, didn’t release it worldwide, which became one of the major reasons why the game’s server had to shut down eventually.
To be entirely honest, there have been very few Baki games and none of them have been particularly great. It’s a shame, really. Baki is a pretty popular series and is even one of the best-selling manga series of all time, having sold over 85 million copies so far. You would think that such wide popularity would result in some good games, but alas, that isn’t so.
For now, all players can do is wait and hope a studio picks up a game project related to the Baki IP. If there is any such news, we will be sure to let our readers know.
