    About Final Weapon

    Final Weapon was created to provide quality, nonsense-free news and content to readers worldwide.

    Final Weapon was created on June 24, 2019, as an outlet looking to provide quality, nonsense-free content on Japanese & Western gaming content. Since then, we've grown to be the home of plenty anime and manga content, including all the latest release information for series worldwide. From day one, our goal has been one thing: to provide high quality content you can't find elsewhere. We're trusted by developers and publishers worldwide, with Final Weapon attending industry events like Summer Game Fest and named an official Media Partner of Indie Live Expo. Whether it's our lightning fast and informative news reporting or our exclusive reviews and guides, all Final Weapon content adheres to the same standard.

    Final Weapon works with key global industry partners year round to provide you with informed, comprehensive, and top-notch reviews on the latest games.

We hope you enjoy our insightful opinions as much as we enjoy writing them.

    We pride ourselves on our news coverage, which has been a key focus from the beginning. Each article is crafted with an informative headline that isn't clickbait - that's the standard we seek. Our news coverage spans from the biggest upcoming titles like Final Fantasy VII Rebirth to indie titles like INUMEDA. If you're an avid anime fan, you can count on us to have the latest updates on your favorite series.
