Anime games are becoming more common, with the genre itself becoming multiplatform lately. When a new anime is released, not only the cartoon itself appears, but also a new game, manga, plus a whole bunch of other content..
Despite the fact that most games leave much to be desired, some of them are quite remarkable - for example, DanMachi: Memoria Freese. Below are the best options, all shareware.
DanMachi - Memoria Freese
DanMachi - Memoria Freese is based on the anime "Is It Bad to Glue Girls in Dungeons?" Despite the eye-catching title, Memoria Freese turned out to be a very good game with an old-school gacha spirit. You summon cartoon characters, pump them up, beat the bad guys. The game boasts original voice actors, rich customization options, and online PvP. Initially, the quality of the game was not up to par, but the developers were not too lazy and finalized it..
At Azur Lane is not the original source in the form of anime, although the yield of the series was announced in September 2018. It is a mobile RPG with 2D shooter, simulation and collectible elements. Here you have to collect anthropomorphic girls who act as warships. Subsequently, you use them in battles with the bad guys.
Events unfold in an alternate universe from the Second World War . In addition to the obvious similarities with the Kantai Collection series, the plot borrows some characters from Hyperdimension Neptunia and Armored Trooper VOTOMS. This is a pretty good collectible game, especially for moe lovers..
Honkai Impact 3rd
Honkai Impact 3rd followed the path of Azur Lane in many ways. The universe began with a mobile game, and ended with its own anime. Basically, Honkai is no different from regular gacha games, but it has an emphasis on action, hack-and-slash elements and RPGs. A bright game with an abundance of interesting characters and many activities - you will not be bored. There are also seasonal events so that even experienced players won't get bored of the game. There are in-app purchases and a paid subscription option. By the way, the subscription only guarantees a regular drop of loot - there is no need for it.
Dragon ball legends
Dragon Ball Legends is a fighting game with a bit of RPG, collectibles and a touch of adventure, where there is both a story mode and PvP battles with other players online. Also you can collect a huge amount of Dragon Ball anime characters. The mechanics are similar to other shareware mobile fighting games, but consist mainly of a series of simple taps and swipes.
This series of games has always seemed a little dry, and Dragon Ball Legends is not much different from others in this regard. However, fans consider it to be the best for a mobile platform. Most of the negative comments are due to a lack of new content and connection issues.
Fate / Grand Order
Fate / Grand Order belongs to the super popular anime series. You collect characters from this large and long-lived anime universe and fight bad guys. There is a story mode here, online PvP, plus it is quite friendly to F2P players who do not make in-game purchases. A nice bonus - full voice acting for all characters.
True, as in any other mobile game, Fate / Grand Order has its drawbacks: for example, tons of grind, randomness and rather banal dialogues. However, the entire Fate series can be described with these words. Plus, it's one of the few mobile RPGs that supports landscape mode - the more space the better.
One piece treasure cruise
One Piece Treasure Cruise is a collectible adventure game with RPG elements. You've definitely played something like this before. Here you will meet over 1,000 characters from the anime, as well as great elements of the original plot. The combat mechanics are the usual set of simple tapes, so in this regard there is nothing interesting to come across here, although for the stylistics in general, everything is more than suitable.
As for the overall quality, it is slightly higher than the average. In the latest updates, you can find a couple of bugs, but the developers promise to get rid of them.
Attack on Titan Tactics
Attack on Titan Tactics is a mobile game based on the popular action-fantasy series. Developed by DeNA Studios, which also include Pokemon Masters and Final Fantasy Record Keeper. However, this game is special: it is a mixture of RPG and strategy, generously flavored with gacha elements. Players control many characters from the original anime and lead them into battle with villains. The plot follows the events of the first season of the anime - both fans of the universe, suffering from nostalgia, and new players who have just begun their acquaintance with the series will be pleased. The mechanics of the game are simple and straightforward, but there are complaints about the mechanics of character upgrades: it is painfully monotonous. In general, get ready for some hardcore grinding.
RWBY: Amity Arena
RWBY: Amity Arena is a dueling game similar to such pillars of the game industry as Hearthstone, Clash Royale, Badland Brawl. Players collect cards, build decks with them, and play them against other players. It also has some MOBA elements. You must destroy your opponent's buildings before he destroys yours. In any case, it is quite different from the usual collectible RPG, made in anime style. But with finding opponents there are small problems associated with the lack of balance, so keep this in mind as you progress through the levels.
SWORD ART ONLINE: Memory Defrag
SAO: Memory Defrag is a very popular game based on a highly successful anime that retains many of the features of the original series. It is a hack and slash action RPG with a story mode and online PvP battles that you can play on your own or with friends.
It's easy to guess that this is a collectible game, which means that you can collect a large number of characters familiar from the series and improve each of them. Of course, it will not surprise you with any unique mechanics, but overall this is a very good mobile RPG. Negative reviews are associated with poor optimization and periodic crashes.
Tales of erin
Tales of Erin is a very popular series of RPG games, anime and other content. However, there is currently no full-fledged game in this universe on mobile platforms. Anyway, available all over the world. Therefore, we'll just get by with Tales of Erin, which is very similar in all respects - a mobile RPG with a decent storyline, good game mechanics and collectibles. It also boasts a good attitude towards F2P players and beautiful graphics. This is definitely an unofficial part of the Tales series, but we can forgive it for this shortcoming.
Tales of Crestoria
Tales of Crestoria is the latest in the Tales universe from Bandai Namco. Visual style, gameplay and audio - the spirit of Tales is felt throughout. You will also likely meet many familiar characters. The Crestoria universe doesn't have an anime of its own, but the Tales series itself is rich in both games and anime, so no questions asked. The budget of the game is not high, and the game itself is designed for relatively old devices, but still: a solid middling gacha genre with many references to the Tales universe.
Tokyo Ghoul: Re Birth
Tokyo Ghoul: Re Birth is another collectible mobile RPG that follows the storyline of the original anime and even continues in some aspects. Here you will find over 100 collectible characters, a simple combat system and an online PvP mode.
It also has a rather unique social element: every season, all players are divided into Ghouls and Humans, with each side fighting over numerous territories - which adds variety.
Ultimate Ninja Blazing
Naruto is an incredibly popular anime, so we wanted to include at least one game in his universe here. There are quite a few such games, but Ultimate Ninja Blazing seems to be the best. This is another collectible RPG with a deep meta, lots of characters and many quests to play.
Story mode repeats the story of the original. In addition to what was said in it, you will find an online mode, special events and a bunch of other elements that keep us from the screens.
