The trailer for Hunter x Hunter Nen X Impact Game just dropped. Nen X Impact, a new fighting game based on the Hunter x Hunter manga series, was revealed with a brief teaser trailer that featured some of the characters getting ready to fight.
There is no indication of when it will appear, and we were not given a glimpse of any gameplay. Fans worry, though, that the footage suggests it would be an arena fighter rather than a more conventional fighting game release. As of right now, the game’s description in English (thanks to Google Translate) refers to it as a “full-scale” or “full-fledged” fighting game, however this doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be an arena fighter.
Apart from that, it’s difficult to figure out anything from this unclear trailer. Fans are happy to see a Hunter x Hunter game in production but are still apprehensive about how the gameplay will turn out, so they are cautiously optimistic. Whatever the genre, it appears that we will be selecting three combatants at a time, possibly switching them mid-fight, and extending the rounds if necessary to eliminate every fighter on our opponent’s team.
Although the platforms on which Hunter x Hunter: Nen x Impact will launch are unknown, it’s safe to assume that it will be available on the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S. Nevertheless, considering the developer’s prior cooperation with Nintendo, a Switch adaptation may possibly be in the works, especially given the reveal trailer’s very simple graphics. All of that is currently unverified, so we’ll have to wait and see when Bushiroad Games, the publisher, and the developer are prepared to release any details about the project.
A brief trailer for Hunter X Hunter Nen X Impact featured the game’s elegant cel-shaded anime art style and its six playable characters, all of which are well-known and recognizable cast members. At the beginning of the trailer, Gon Freecs, the protagonist of Hunter X Hunter, and his companion Killua Zoldyck were revealed. Kurapika, Leo Paradinight, Hisoka Morow, and Isaac Netero were the next four well-known characters to appear.

The trailer quickly switches to a brief overview of the game’s plot shortly after the identities of these six characters are revealed. Hunter X Hunter Nen X Impact appears to be a cooperative fighting game in which players compete in groups of three. This is shown in the video by Killua, Kurapika, and Hisoka on one squad and Gon, Leo, and Netero on the other. It’s unclear from the clip if the fighting gameplay will take place in a 3v3 anime arena fighter like Jump Force or in a 2D 3v3 team fighting game akin to Dragon Ball FighterZ or Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
Since there are so many 3D anime arena fighting games already available, many people are expecting that Nen X Impact will go in the former route rather than the latter. Although the initial video for Nen X Impact did not reveal the game’s release date or its targeted platforms, fans are still anticipating what Eighting and Bushiroad have in store.
You can follow the website to receive further updates on the game, but as of right now, it only has the trailer for the unveiling that we have already seen. The developer’s plans to provide additional project details are unclear at this time.
