Slam Dunk Game Enters Pre-Registration for Upcoming Mobile Release
We’re no strangers to games based on popular shows. These titles have become prevalent in the past few years, with the likes of Saint Seiya Awakening, The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, or any of the Marvel games, among many others, flooding the market with games of impressive quality. Nevertheless, regardless of the fun they provide, their brands alone are enough to catch the attention of the public and draw in countless gamers to download and try out the games. The latest title to land in this category is the upcoming Slam Dunk, based on the popular show and manga of the same name.
Relive the Exciting Moments of the Anime
For those who don’t know it, Slam Dunk is one of the most popular sports animes of the ‘90s, centered around the journey of the Shohoku High School basketball team as they work to go from being a little group of no consequence, to a powerful force in the national tournaments. The upcoming Slam Dunk game is based on the events of the anime, even featuring a main story campaign where players can relive the events of the show.
The story in the game will span over 10 chapters and will include many scenes taken straight out of the anime. If you grew up watching Slam Dunk, then this game will definitely tap into these fond memories—that alone is reason enough to give it a try.
However, the main draw of this game is its gameplay, featuring real-time basketball matches in several formats, including 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, and 5v5. The kicker here is that every character in the game has their own special skills and attributes, which makes them uniquely-suited for specific roles. In this sense, Slam Dunk will also have RPG elements as players will need to unlock new characters, and upgrade them to increase their stats and eventually unlock their ultimate skills.
Though they haven’t revealed many details about it, we expect that the methods for unlocking new characters in Slam Dunk will be via a gacha RNG system. If so, this means that you will need to complete daily tasks and constantly farm resources in order to perform random summonings. However, this grind will be well worth the effort once you finally get one of the rarer characters that have the best stats and skills, since they will probably carry you through most of the game.
Check out the official trailer for the game:
Just remember that, to win every game, you’ll need the best controls and performance, which is why you should play Slam Dunk on PC with BlueStacks when it comes out.
