The Digital Dood edition includes all eight bonus scenarios, four fan-favorite characters, and three character classes that were first seen on the PlayStation 4 game, Disgaea: Alliance of Vengeance.

3. Dragon Ball FighterZ

Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the best Dragon Ball game released in the past few years. The fighting system is great, as well as the visuals and the storyline.
The game still has the fighting elements from previous Dragon Ball games and other action titles. But this time, the player must pick three characters to form a team.
The gameplay involves charging energy meters, throwing punches, and letting go of energy bombs. The player may switch between the characters in the game.
Dragon Ball FighterZ has an online multiplayer mode that allows players to battle it out in an online arena. There is a ranking mode available for a better matchmaking system as well.
Avail this game on Steam for $14.

The player gets to have a custom “mech” character that battles against other mechs available. Similar to the Gundam franchise, there is a Hangar available wherein players can customize the look and abilities of their respective mechs.
One feature that is unique to other games is the ability of the player to loot the downed enemies for upgradeability.
A four-player multiplayer mode is available. The game is on sale for $47.99.
5. Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch

Level 5 first released Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch in 2011. The role-playing game had its remaster back in 2019 for its PC and Nintendo Switch release. Despite almost a decade old, it is safe to say that Ni No Kuni’s charm is still there.
Ni No Kuni is a role-playing game wherein the player controls Oliver, a young boy who is determined to save his mother. The game is reminiscent of the Pokemon series due to its battle mechanic involving “familiars.” These creatures can be captured and tamed pretty much like Pokemons.
The player’s main quests are set in a linear fashion, but there are side quests available for access to the open world.
Ni No Kuni is available until May 6 for only $29.99.
