Mangas have a lot of stories to tell. From romcoms, psychological thrillers, fantasy worlds, to motivational stories, among several others. One such manga series is Haikyu, of which the gaming prospects will be discussed in this article. Here’s what we know about the new Haikyu game:
Haikyu: What is it?
Haikyu is a manga series that follows the story of Shōyō Hinata, a boy determined to become a great volleyball player despite his small stature. Shōyō enrolls in the volleyball club of his school, only to find himself be the sole member of the same. He eventually convinces some friends to team-up, only to receive a crushing defeat in their first official game.
He develops a long standing rivalry with Kageyama, a third year player. Shōyō soon studies to get into the high school that was previously attended by his idol. However, he finds Kageyama there as well. Both of them help each other and develop an explosive duo, building quite a reputation for themselves. The show follows the character developments between the pair and their journey to make it to the Nationals.
New Haikyu game
Sports games have been a favorite, be it for anime fans or the general gaming community. Everyone remembers the days of Wii Sports, to Kinect sports games. In the same nerve, Haikyu has amazing game adaptation potential. Keeping that in mind, we’ve seen a game released for Haikyu, for the platform Nintendo 3DS. The game was released in September 2014, and was titled Haikyu!! Tsunage! Itadaki no Keshiki. There were another titles released for the 3DS, including Haikyū!! Cross Team Match!
2021, we’re afraid, will not see any significant releases for Haikyu. Shōyō will hopefully be seen battling it out in coming time, but there have been no concrete announcements regarding the same. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
