On the hunt for some of the best gacha games available on mobile? You’ve come to the right place! I’m not talking about the addictive yet boring slot machine-style games.
I mean games where you actually win jaw-dropping virtual stuff! The kind that makes your heart race as you watch a wheel spin and pray to the RNG gods that it lands on your favorite character.
Yes, those are the ones we’ll be discussing today! We’ve gathered a list of games for both Android and iOS devices that will keep you entertained for hours on end!
It’s funny how Genshin Impact is one of the newest games in the market, yet it effortlessly tops this list. You’re missing out if you haven’t played this open-world RPG from Mihoyo! Featuring a compelling storyline, this game will take you across vast plains, towering mountains, bleak dungeons, and every other scenery scattered all across Teyvat.
I know it sounds amazing, but the real spotlight falls on the gacha system. Featuring a wide array of pretty waifus and cool male characters, Genshin manages to capture every audience on mobile! You have the popular grandmaster Jeanne, her adorable sister, Barbara, the strict Keqing, and even the red-headed Diluc who emits a bad-ass aura! What’s even more impressive is that you don’t need to unlock the 5-star characters to beat the game. But if you want a waifu so bad, prepare your wallet now!
Developed by another Chinese company called Lilith Games, AFK Arena is the epitome of ‘don’t judge a book by its cover.’ It might look like a cheesy, boring game at first glance, but once you’re fully immersed, it’ll suck your time, money, and luck! Not that it’s a bad thing. I mean to say is how addicting this idle hero collection game is.
Basically, you assemble a team of champions to progress through the game. But unlike Genshin or other gachas where you control the heroes, the characters in this game fight automatically on their own. That’s why it’s called AFK Arena! However, you still have control over the unique skills, upgrades, and equipment of your characters. All in all, it’s a great game to pass the time.
Raid: Shadow Legends
You may have seen or heard about Raid from the sponsored ads they request out of your favorite YouTubers. This just proves how popular the game is, considering they can afford to pay for sponsorship across multiple channels. As annoying and repetitive as the ads may seem, the game itself has its own charm that draws people in.
Brace yourself as you collect over 500 heroes in this visually superior gacha game. Each character has its own set of unique skills, appearances, and roles to play. You will have to make sure your characters are compatible with each other to create the ultimate team! On top of the hero collection aspect, Raid: Shadow Legends features a massive campaign, PVP, dungeons, and many more RPG elements. I promise you won’t get enough of it!
If you love waifus, but Genshin doesn’t tickle your fancy, the 2D feel of Epic Seven might be the charm you’re looking for. Released in 2018, the game has garnered over five million downloads with an average rating of 4.3 stars on Playstore. Not surprised, considering it showcases some of the most stunning waifus and awe-inspiring visuals on mobile.
As for the gacha system, one can say that Epic Seven is pretty okay-ish. While rates for top-tier characters can be dismal, the game constantly holds events where players can obtain free spin currencies. You can even get one free spin every day. How generous is that? All things considered, Epic Seven does stay true to the essence of gacha games where youwin some, you lose some.
Fate Grand Order
Fate Grand Order or FGO, is one of the most prominent gacha games out there. Having been translated into five different languages, it has racked almost 33 million downloads in total. This turn-based strategy game where you are the ‘Master’ encourages you to collect and fight with summons referred to as ‘servants.’ I believe that what makes this game attractive is its anime-inspired characters enacting a storyline through a visual novel format.
Are you ready to pull the legendary Saber or Gilgamesh? You can even obtain classic historical heroes like Mozart, Leonardo Da Vinci, and Charles Babbage! There’s also King Arthur, Mordred, Sherlock Holmes, and Merlin. Over the years, the FGO team has attended an interesting list of servants in its vast 280-hero pool. Lots of waifus for you to collect!
Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross
Last but certainly not the least on our list is Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross. And yeah, it’s inspired by the popular anime of the same name. While you mainly control the protagonist, the all-powerful Melodias, you can collect other characters in the game as you progress.
The most exciting thing about this gacha is that the system doesn’t revolve around the characters. Instead, you will be pulling for skill cards to make your heroes even more powerful. But if you think the fun ends there, you’re wrong. You can also go for character costumes which will make your favorite characters stand out during battle.
And the best thing about Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross? The game follows almost the exact storyline from the anime with a few twists here and there. Whether you’re a fan or not of the actual show, this game is undoubtedly worth getting your time and, yes, your money into!
Wrapping Things Up
There are so many good gachas in mobile that everything just comes down to personal preference, honestly. Don’t be sad if your favorite game isn’t on this list. There are other articles out there that feature them. And while you’re at it, why don’t you check out the games above? Just make sure you keep your wallet intact, though. They can get pretty addictive!
