0 Simultaneous Players on a Popular Video Game Adapted from an Anime: Why It’s been Abandoned by Fans

Unlike the second season of the animated adaptation, this manga did not manage to transform the essay into the world of video games. However, this shonen has crazy potential but the final result was completely missed, so much so that players turned away from it in the space of a few days. If there are currently a very small handful of fans, there was indeed a time when attendance was deserted!

Jujutsu Kaisen is a hit in manga and anime… but a little less in video games

Not so long ago, the manga Jujutsu Kaisen proved to us that he was a real steamroller in the world of Shonen. Its popularity is no longer in doubt, especially since the return of the animated series has only confirmed its status as a staple of Japanese animation with, once again, passages that will remain cult. Despite this, we cannot say that everything that touches Jujutsu Kaisen turns into gold. At the very beginning of the month, it’s a new video game adaptation, called Cursed Clashwhich takes over in the form of a 3D arena fighting game where two teams of two characters face off… and the result wasn’t really up to par.

As the screenshot of the site proves SteamDB posted by user EstherGoddo_ on the social network the Bandai Namco title has completely reached the fateful threshold of 0 players connected over an hour between February 14 and 15. This sad score only lasted a certain time but the general averages are not really great. It must be said that at the time of release, the editorial team was tempted by one aspect, between curiosity and apprehension. And finally, the end result turned out to be even more terrible than imagined.

Jujutsu Kaisen, Naruto x Boruto… Video game adaptations of manga that no longer make as much effort

As these lines are written, Jujutsu Kaisen: Cursed Clash only has 91 players connected simultaneously. During the last twenty-four hours, this amount has not even exceeded 250 players. These low averages are also a continuation of the critical reception of the game since the highest peak recorded to date since the game’s release is estimated at only 5243 players ! Lately, the craze for video game adaptations of cult shonen has dried up and these productions have failed to stand out from the crowd, in particular because they no longer reach the same quality standards as at one time.

Yet also ultra-popular, the manga Naruto reproduces a similar trajectory with Naruto x Boruto Ultimate Ninja Storm Connections. Just like its companion, this new title, inspired by the work of Masashi Kishimoto, does not take off in the charts. Always thanks to the site SteamDBwe can see that the results are not more encouraging: 104 players online currently, 170 in the last 24 hours and barely 4000 players, 3897 more precisely, at the height of its popularity. Last November, our test also predicted a slight disappointment since we gave it a score of 11/20.
