Slam Dunk Scores Three Point Shot, Becomes A Card Battling RPG

By Spencer . February 17, 2013 . 3:31pm


Because everything and anything can be a card battling RPG, Mobage picked up the rights to the basketball manga series Slam Dunk. KLabGames makers of Tales of Kizna and a Yu Yu Hakusho card game developed Slam Dunk: Aim to be the Strongest Team.


Players form a basketball team with characters represented by cards. The key to winning is the the position you place cards on the court. Slam Dunk: Aim to be the Strongest Team is available now for Android and iOS via Mobage.

    Slam Dunk needs to pull a Hunter X Hunter and get a anime reboot.

    • sibarraz

      And this time, ending with the manga finale

    • malek86

      Yes, but possibly keeping the same soundtrack :O

      • Ghia Recca Tantra

        yea, all slamdunk soundtrack is great!

      • Aoshi00

        The Slam Dunk theme songs were all very high on the music charts in the 90s too, Baad, Zard (Sakai Izumi, RIP), Ohguro Maki, Wands, etc..

        Hunter x Hunter has a rarely exceptional reboot though, been watching every week w/o fail.. the G.I. arc is so well and consistently drawn (as w/ the whole series so far), Chimera Ant at this rate would be godly.. If Slam Dunk were rebooted today, maybe it would look more like the Buzzer Beater anime, which had pretty good animation. But that probably won’t happen, Vagabond doesn’t even have an anime yet, or REAL.. like Togashi’s old Sci-Fi short Level E was made into an anime recently.

          My only gripe with this GI arc is that they sometimes skipped some important details

          • Aoshi00

            yeah, but G.I. was rather tedious in the manga, it’s ok when you read it. I like the way they’re doing it now, keeping and emphasizing what’s interesting and not too slow. Also the animation is much better than the manga and the original OVAs as well. Next week Bisuke would get to see Hisoka naked taking a bath in the river :) I’m really hoping they would do Chimera Ant w/ this kind of animation (no censor on Yorkshin’s violence at all), which is the biggest purpose of this reboot, but the absence of Kaito worries me..

      Haruko-san!!! :)

      cell phone games again.. but the cards look very nice, like the real collectible cards back then.. such a timeless classic.. Card battle games w/ stats and position might not be too bad, like the old Captain Tsubasa RPGs on the Famicom.. I used to love Sendou and Rukawa, so cool :)

    I really miss Slam Dunk.

    Shohoku! Shohoku! Shohoku! Shohoku! Shohoku!

    Tensai Sakuragi!

    Brings back memories. I really love the anime, it’s just disappointing that it had no proper conclusion.

  • Z3

    I used to watch this when I was a kid and the only person I can remember now is Hanamichi Sakuragi

  • Where’s my Chaos Dunk card?
