A flurry of new anime video games has emerged. Multi-platform gaming is becoming the norm for the entire genre. There’s a new game, some manga, and a slew of other things on the way. Anime based on video games have appeared in some cases in recent years (looking at you, Azur Lane). Whatever the case may be, those who enjoy playing games based on their favorite anime series will find a plethora of choices. Here are the finest Android anime games! It’s important to keep in mind that all of these games are completely free to play, and the majority of the bad feedback comes from players who’ve reached the point of no return.
The top gacha games are also worth checking out because many of them are anime-inspired or straight anime games. KonoSuba – Fantastic Days is also worth mentioning. It’s now in pre-registration on Google Play, but it’s expected to be a big hit when it launches.
1. Azur Lane
It is only in the fall of 2019 that Azur Lane was made into an anime. Although it was revealed in September of this year. This is a side-scrolling, shooting, and simulation mobile RPG. Anthropomorphic girls that serve as warships are your specialty. With the help of your ship girls, you take on the villains. The setting for the game is a reimagined World War II. Characters from Hyperdimension Neptunia and Armored Trooper VOTOMS join those from the Kantai Collection and the game’s other clear influences, the Kantai Collection. For fans of moe, this is a fun little gacha game.
2. Bleach Brave Souls
On this list, Bleach Brave Souls is one of the more established anime games. Basically, it’s an RPG gacha-style game in which players can summon numerous Bleach characters. It is from this point that you level them up, use them to accomplish the plot, and compete with or compete against other players in the game This is a long and tedious game. You can expect it from a gacha game. It’s only at the endgame when you’re left with nothing except pulling new characters and finishing banners. At times, the co-op community can be grating. Other than that, it’s an enjoyable experience.
3. DanMachi – Memoria Freese
Memoria Freese is a character from the anime “Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?”. Aside from the obnoxious anime name, Memoria Freese turned out to be a good game. It’s a typical gacha experience in Japan. After gaining experience, you can summon and train characters from the show to battle the baddies. Additionally, the game features the game’s original voice actors, several customizability options, and online PvP. The game had a difficult start, but it has since improved.
4. Dragon Ball Legends
With a little RPG, gacha, and adventure thrown in for good measure. There’s a campaign mode and a PvP online mode. All of the Dragon Ball characters can also be collected. There are a lot of similarities between this game and other free-to-play mobile games. A sequence of simple taps and swipes are all that is required to complete the task. In the past, I found the Dragon Ball series to be a bit overly serious, and I expect the same from the game. There are a lot of people who love the series that prefer this one over the others. New content was cited as the primary source of dissatisfaction, but there were also reports of technical difficulties. Another fantastic Dragon Ball game is Dragon Ball Z Dokkan Battle (Google Play).
5. Fate/Grand Order
From the hugely popular Fate anime comes Fate/Grand Order. In terms of smartphone RPGs, it’s rather normal fare. Battle against the baddies as you acquire some of the many characters from the long-running series. With a story mode and PvP online, it’s great for free-to-play users. The majority of the cast is also voiced. Those small details mean a lot to us. Like other mobile gacha, it has its drawbacks. There is a lot of grinding, some luck, and a lot of cheesy dialogue. But the Fate series is much the same. And it’s unique in that it can be played in landscape format, which is rare for mobile RPGs. It’s a nice thing to have more room.
6. Honkai Impact 3rd
Azur Lane and Honkai Impact 3rd were both on the same path when they formed. While once a mobile game, it has since been adapted into a popular anime series. Hack-and-slash action RPG mechanics give the game a little more action than typical gachas. It’s a vibrant and engaging game with a wide variety of characters and activities. Seasonal events are also available to keep things interesting for participants in the final stages of the game. A subscription fee and in-app purchases are included. You don’t really need the membership to enjoy the game; it merely ensures that you get certain stuff on a regular basis. Genshin Impact (Google Play), a critically regarded mobile RPG by the same developer, also makes the cut.
7. One Piece Treasure Cruise
Adults on our planet have no idea what life is like without One Piece, which is weird. Anime games and Treasure Cruise are similar in this regard. Many people have played the game for decades. Like other anime games, it’s a gacha RPG. 2,000 characters are at your disposal, making it one of the most comprehensive gachas ever created. You can play through a variety of stories, participate in seasonal events, and do a lot more. You can feel overwhelmed at first, but don’t give up! Most things become second nature after a while.
8. The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross
The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross, a mobile RPG gacha, is yet another. Almost all the characters from the Seven Deadly Sins series appear in this one. There is also a two-player co-op mode, as well as an online PvP mode. Because of this, it isn’t the same sprite every time you play as in most other gachas. Some people aren’t happy with the 4GB download size of this one.
9. Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag
Anime fans will enjoy SAO: Memory Defrag, a game based on the popular anime. However, many of the show’s elements have been preserved. With a story mode and online PvP, it has a hack-and-slash action RPG flair If you prefer to play alone or with a group, you can do so in both modes. It’s a collectible card game called a gacha. There’s no limit to how many characters you can acquire and how many upgrades you can give each one. There aren’t any groundbreaking mechanics here, but it’s still a respectable smartphone RPG. Optimization difficulties and occasional game crashes are the most common complaints about this one.
10. Tales of Crestoria
A new Tales game, Tales of Crestoria, has been released by Bandai Namco. It borrows heavily on the Tales series in terms of design, gameplay, and sound. Characters you’ve seen before are almost certainly going to appear in this film. No Crestoria anime exists, but the Tales series contains several games and some anime as well. So that qualifies for something, right? Even though the games run a little sluggishly on lower-end and older devices, it’s a fairly conventional gacha with a lot of Tales-inspired features.
