Dragon Ball, One Piece, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Bleach, and many other iconic anime franchises all fall under the Shonen Jump all have ties to the Shonen Jump brand. If a video game is going to feature one of those franchises, there's going to be Shonen Jump licensing involved.
In the latest issue of V Jump magazine in Japan, Bandai Namco Games general manager Ryo Mito shared some details on what it's like working with Shonen Jump properties. You can check out his comments in the blurbs below.
“I’ve worked on games for many Jump series (Saint Seiya, One Piece, MHA, Shaman King), and even with the Dragon Ball franchise alone, I’ve worked on nearly 20 games.”
“Our company has a ‘Jump Team’ that focuses on making Shonen Jump games.”
“Originally, I was a game producer who worked on organizing all the creative ideas that come up in a game’s development.”
“I hope that people who like games, anime, and the characters will aim to join this industry, where they can make use of their knowledge.”
“I still think that respect for character games still isn’t that high, so I hope that we can keep making games, and make people hyped for character games.”
