Anime Complex: Cross Arena 2020 (アニメ コンプレックス:クロスアリーナ2020 Anime Konpurekkusu: Kurosu Arīna 2020?) is a 2.5D crossover fighting game developed by Arc System Works, in collaboration with B.B. Studio, Square Enix and Bandai Namco Games, and published by the latter, released worldwide on April 3, 2020 for the PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Windows. The second entry of the Cross Crisis series, the game serves the spiritual successor of Dengeki Bunko Fighting Climax and Jump Force, featuring characters from various popular anime and manga franchises.

Production

After the success of Namco X Capcom: Crisis, Sam Imbecile expressed interest in developing and directing the next crossover fighting game with Arc System Works.

In E3 2019, a teaser trailer for the new game animated was animated by Trigger and publicly displayed, which showcases Goku and Vegeta, Luffy, Naruto, Sailor Moon, Gintama, Jotaro, Cure Black and Cure White, Saitama and Genos, Eren Jaeger, Ichigo Kurosaki, Kirito and Ryuko Matoi, all prepared to fight. The teaser ends with all the aforementioned characters charging each other, followed by a text that reads: "July 28, 2020: A great war has begun… ANIME COMPLEX: CROSS ARENA 2020".

The trailer sparked hype and excitement for millions of anime fans and gaming community members worldwide, with Bandai Namco handling promotion on various cities across Japan, North America, United Kingdom, France, Germany and South Korea, and on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube, where updates and reveals are posted.

With the game slated for release on July 28 of the following year, Sam posted in his Twitter feed that it will be "the ultimate dream anime crossover that everybody wanted" and feature characters from various series in the Japanese anime genre ranging from the 70's such as Devilman and Space Pirate Captain Harlock, to the latest ones, such as Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, Sword Art Online and Dragon Ball Super. It will also bring forth many series developed by Toei Animation and Aniplex, as it is meant as well to celebrate the company's 65th and 25th anniversaries respectively.

Plot

The game's plot is told over the course of various anime franchises, but Cross Arena 2020 focuses primarily on the events of the following series: Sailor Moon Crystal (Stars Arc), Jojo's Bizzare Adventure, Boruto: Naruto Next Generation, Gintama, High School DxD Hero, Attack on Titan Season 3, Fist of the North Star, Go! Princess PreCure, Devilman, Space Pirate Captain Harlock, Saint Seiya Omega, Dragon Ball Super, Princess Knight Lilia, Princess Knight Catue, Taimanin Asagi, Sword Art Online: Ordinal Scale, Shakugan no Shana, The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya and Future Diary. However, there is an overarching plot that is told over the backdrop of the various series.

With a new threat ravaging the farthest corners of Multiverse, Sailor Galaxia of Shadow Galactica, having conquered the 12th Universe, calls out evil forces from every world she could travel by recreating the dimension-traveling technology using what's left of the Crossgate from Namco X Capcom: Crisis, to unite, destroy all those who oppose them and reshape all of reality according to their will. To oppose this coming threat, the heroes from various universes arrive on what is known as the "Cross-Universe", where all the dimensions converge and participate in an event called Cross Arena 2020. As the story progresses, the anime numbers find themselves fighting against the Great Darkness itself to stop the complete destruction of the Multiverse which is set to happen in the near future of July 28 of 2020.

Gameplay

The gameplay and its graphics are similar to both Guilty Gear and Dragon Ball FighterZ, with the addition of a Tag Team fighting style akin from games such as Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, Street Fighter x Tekken and BlazBlue: Cross Tag Battle, as matches can be made either into solo battles or tag battles (2-on-2 or 3-on-3).

in a breakthrough of tradition of fighting games, the characters are able to carry items to be used during combat such as food or potions that replenish their health or energy, and weapons that can only be carried uniquely by some characters.

In combat, player characters have four meters. The first and most basic is the Life Meter. Players simply have to bring their opponents' Life Meter to empty to knock them out and win the match. The second that characters have are Power Meters that grow with each hit they land on their opponent and can be maximized up to Level 6, with each succeeding level making them stronger and faster and giving them access to more powerful moves. If a character becomes low on health, the speed in filling the Power Meter sharply increases. In Level 5 or 6, a character can perform their Cross Ultimate Move, the strongest combo in the game which can almost guarantee a one-hit-knockout if done effectively.

A character is also equipped with a Barrier Meter introduced in Namco X Capcom: Crisis, which shows how much the player can use block barriers to nullify damage from attacks until the meter reaches from a full 100% to an empty 0%. The Barrier Meter decreases each time the player blocks an attack.

A brand new mechanic to the player's challenge in the game is the inclusion of the Energy Meter. Unlike the Barrier Meter, the Energy Meter gradually and very slowly drains in time and can only be replenished by an energy-refilling potion or item. Certain catalysts, like using a very strong special move or Cross technique, drains the energy faster. As the meter continues to decrease, the character becomes more exhausted, meaning they would become more sensitive to attack recoil, take more damage and fill the Power Meter even slower. This guarantees to handicap the fighters of both sides if a fight goes on for too long and forces the player to swiftly finish the match.

In tag battles, players can either rapidly change between characters through Cross Blitz to land quick blows or provide Cross Assists to land simultaneous attacks from their characters. Two characters can also access their own Hyper Tag Team Cross Attack, which can only be executed if both of them are at least Level 3.

Each character also comes with a Support Character who provides assists in various ways in a limited quantity per match, in the vain as the original Marvel vs. Capcom.

Reception

The game performed successfully in its first two months of release, having sold 800,000 copies in Japan and 430,000 in North America. By the end of 2020, the crossover sold an estimated total of 4,589,000 copies worldwide.

The game also received critical acclaim, with reviewers praising its abundance of anime and manga franchises and characters crossing over, story, gameplay contents and extra features such as several available modes and DLC.

Poster controversy

Posters publicly displayed in Los Angeles, Chicago, Houston and New York City promoting the game's Western release garnered controversy for showing an image of Keisar Ephes choking Sailor Uranus, with critics saying the ad advocates violence against women. Among those opposed to the material was women's right advocate Anita Sarkeesian, who told IGN:

“There is a major problem when the men and women at Japanese entertainment companies think casual violence against women is the way to market a game. There is no context in the ad, just a woman getting strangled. The fact that no one flagged this is offensive and frankly, stupid. The "geniuses" behind this (and I use that term lightly) need to to take a long hard look at the mirror and see how they are contributing to society. Imagine if it were a black man being strangled by a white man, or a gay male being strangled by a hetero? The outcry would be enormous. So let’s right this wrong. Bandai Namco, since you can’t manage to put any women creators on your slate for the next two years, how about you at least replace your ad?”

In response to the outrage, Bandai Namco of America apologized for the ads and said it intended to remove the image from circulation.

    • Aniplex's 25th anniversary;
    • Kadokawa Shoten's 75th anniversary; and
    • Shuiesha's 95th anniversary.
  • Unfortunately, like Guilty Gear Xrd -REVELATOR- and BlazBlue: Central Fiction, Cross Arena 2020 does not have an English dub for an international release.
  • Despite being a direct sequel of Namco X Capcom: Crisis, none of the characters and plot elements are carried over into Cross Arena 2020 other than the destroyed Crossgate from the last game which would serve as a major catalyst for the game's events.
  • Veteran Japanese singers Ichirō Mizuki and Mitsuko Horie, who sang the game's opening theme, portray as the main antagonists who even have their own themes as insert songs.
  • Roy Khan and Noora Louhimo are the well known singers as they sing in their respective bands those are Conception and Battle Beast. In addition they sing an insert songs in this game.
  • Shinya Aiba in this game is an anti-hero, a deuteragonist and former villain as he reformed and is going to help his elder brother to bring evil Keisar Ephes and Sailor Galaxia to justice thus earning him new name as Tekkaman Sword thus turning him into an anti-hero deuteragonist with sarcastic sense of humor.
    • In Chou Super Robot Wars AE, when battling Keisar Ephes again, characters from Tekkaman Blade, Gurren Lagann and King of Braves GaoGaiGar would reference their encounter in the events of this game.
  • Various visual novel series featured in the game are often changed to benefit their plot into the game's story.
    • Kin from Kuroinu in this game is the main protagonist alongside Kazui Kurosaki as he realized about Volt's evil plan as he deffected to the side of heroes and thus earning the trust of Seven Shield Alliance all together and love from Akeno Himejima thus making him the former villain alongside Edwin Black from Taimanin Asagi. Kin was redesigned by Tetsuo Hara of Fist of the North Star fame thus making his outfit resemble the Lee brothers from Double Dragon as his fighting style is now Hokuto Shinken and it's variation Go no Ken which he learned from Raoh himself as he will use the fighting abilities to bring down his former Black Dog comrades to justice and to destroy the evil Sailor Galaxia and Keisar Ephes and save the worlds and of course to protect the others.
    • Catue and Jin from Princess Knight Catue are joining Gintoki's Yorozuya crew after Gintama manga and anime plot. Jindrack Hemy thanks to his friendship with Shinpachi Shimura had gained a lot of respect from Gin and even often becomes the victim of comic relief moments as he acts like Shinpachi due to sharing the same voice actor as the same goes to Catue as she calls Gintoki by his nickname "Gin-chan" like Kagura does as both Kagura and Catue are now have the same large bust size thanks to their redesigns by Masami Obari and Hideki Sorachi respectively as Kagura acts like a big sister figure to Catue while Shinpachi and Jindrack forming the brotherly bonds. Even Jindrack himself even screams "DONDAKE!" which is Shinpachi's catchphrase as Jindrack in the gameplay while being electrofied says either "DONDAKE!" or "Herpes! Herpes me!" thus making Jindrack an expy of Shinpachi not only the personality but also the same voice actor. Jindrack and Catue after killing Ginyol and Kruul for good had freed Dragundaala kingdom from their grasp as they are approached by former Black Dog mercenary Kin who defected to the side of Celestine and her forces after realizing what evil man Volt was as he was reformed by Yuria herself as she saw the goodness in him as Kin had defected to Celestine after killing Hicks, Beasley, sir Mandeville, Mortadella brothers, Tororo, Grave Levantine and Shamuhaza in cold blood as he torn his own Black Dog symbol for good thus cutting his ties with Black Dog gang and finally moving into a new life and becoming Raoh's desciple as he learns Hokuto Shinken's Go no Ken style as Kin had a change in heart as he became in personality serious, carrying and kind man and a merciless punisher of evil. Kin himself is also brooding along with Levi Ackerman due to them sharing the same voice actor Hiroshi Kamiya thus Kin is the only and first Black Dog mercenary to join the cause of Celestine. Kin himself is also being the victim of pranks done by Kazui and Jindrack as Kin himself also loves pulling the humorous pranks on Kazui, Jindrack and Kenji during the peaceful times thus giving Kin the good sense of humor.
    • Kazui being 18 years old young man like Boruto Uzumaki have the love interest named Alicia Arcturus thus earning her trust and love after he saved Alicia from Beasley and destroyed the said former prime minister thus earning the respect from Eos Arcturus and Prim Fiorire as he is also trained by his father thus inheriting Zangetsu and trained by the legendary Arrancar Tier Harribel who was freed by Wandereich leader Uryu Ishida as he saw the goodness in Tier thus allowing her to join Soul Society thus being the first arrancar turned soul reaper like Ichigo does. Alicia is the type of tsundere but in fact she is shy and timid as she got her feelings toward Kazui like she does to Sora from Kingdom Hearts in Project X Zone 3: War of Infinite Worlds - Ultimate Edition as she shares the same personality with Moka Akashiya and Hinata Hyuuga as all three share the same voice actress Nana Mizuki.
    • Kiryuu Sabato from Taimanin Asagi and Kyle from Elf Princess Nina are outright anti-heroes as they deal with they did the horrible things in the past as Nina Asrath Winvilla was turned into a high queen of her kingdom as she remains since then as the high elf herself after she was saved by Inojin Yamanaka and then Kyle upon realizing the error of his way had abandoned Nina's kingdom thus giving Nina into Inojin's care as Miriia had became the servant of Nina since then thus earning her friendship and trust. Nina herself also humored by the sense of humour of Lamia from Betterman as Lamia also during the peaceful times acts like Bo-bo-bo-Bo-Bo-Bo-Bo from his title series as they share the same voice actor. Both Kiryuu Sabato and Kyle are also known for having a sense of humor akin to Deadpool and Spider-Man from Marvel Comics.
    • Edwin Black from Taimanin Asagi also joins the good guys thus realizing the error of his ways thus earning the trust of Anti-Demon ninjas and his long time follower and friend Ingrid the Hell Knight. Ingrid herself also have a soft spot for children as anyone who dares to harm the child before the eyes of Ingrid she will punish them without mercy. Edwin also shares the humorous personality of Hol Horse from JoJo's Bizarre Adventure as he had his voice actors Norio Wakamoto and Houchuu Ohtsuka voicing Hol Horse in ova adaptation of Stardust Crusaders and All Star Battle. He is now currently sharing the same voice actor both in Japanese and English with Jiraiya from Naruto and his humorous perverted personality for a comic relief effect. Ingrid herself also had a crush on Jotaro Kujo himself because she loves him for his serious and cool personality and kind heart.
    • Lilia Ewerbein's first meet with Kenji Himura from Rurouni Kenshin involving them accidentally kiss each other for a first time as they scream commically as Lilia Ewerbein from Princess Knight Lilia suffered the loss of her brother Dirk at the hands of Keisar Ephes but before Keisar could kill her she was saved by Kenshiro himself as he took her into Yuria's care. Lilia also shares the same voice actress with Rias Gremory due to them having the same personality.
