Top 5 Anime MMO Mobile Games
Video game adaptations based on popular anime franchises are everywhere, and it would be no surprise if you’re finding it hard to decide which one you should be playing. We’ve compiled a number of anime-themed games we recommend that you try out.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links
Even with the entry of a truckload of other MMO card collecting (CCG) games on mobile platforms, the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise is still going strong. The strong player-base and tactical gameplay of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Linksdoes just that. Targeting a casual audience and Yu-Gi-Oh fans at the same time, the gameplay is simplified and duels are designed to be shorter than mainstream games.
Here, you will get to interact with characters from the anime, like the protagonist Yugi Moto, his best friend Joey Wheeler, and Seto Kaiba. Moreover, you can create your own deck with the game’s comprehensive catalog of cards. Finally, you can test your mettle against other players in fast-paced duels in multiplayer mode.
Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag
Sword Art: Memory Defrag is based on...you guessed it, the Sword Art Online anime and light novel series. In this game, you will fill in the shoes of Kirito and Asuna, the main protagonists, and you will follow the same storyline as the anime’s. The best of the game is its ambitious battle system wherein you control your characters’ movements through swipes and taps on screen. The game is expansive: apart from the main plot, there are quests and multiplayer mode for you to spend countless hours on!
Fire Emblem Heroes
The Fire Emblem franchise finally makes its presence on mobile devices, with Fire Emblem Heroes. Though it’s not based on an anime series, the franchise is one of the longest running anime-themed JRPGs out there. It is a solid spinoff game, and you will get to interact and recruit various Fire Emblem characters from across the series. Notable names include Lyn, Chrom, Eirika, and Vander. Though the gameplay is relatively easier compared to the main games, the strategy element is there, and you would want to get your hands on this game.
Kingdom Hearts: Unchained X
Based on one of the most iconic franchises of all time, Kingdom Hearts: Unchained X features both your favorite Square Enix and Disney characters. However, instead of taking the boots of Sora, you will be creating your own character and explore the various environments in the main game. Battling uses the keyblade your character possesses, and to use skills and abilities, you need to collect medals featuring Square Enix and Disney characters. You can also team up with your friends where you can take out bosses in Heartless dungeon raids.
One Piece Thousand Storm
One Piece Thousand Stormis based on the hit and long-running series, One Piece. Featuring characters like Luffy, Roronoa Zorro, Franky, and Usop. Be treated to an action-packed combat system with fantastic graphics and a balanced leveling system. Explore various dungeons and locations in the One Piece universe, and go online to team up with other players in taking down bosses!
