The Best Japanese Mobile Games
You can find great mobile games that have been developed all over the world, but there is something really special about many of the games from Japan. They have quirky, unusual stories, cool characters, and all-new game mechanics. In fact, many Japanese games deliver experiences we have never seen before. You need to check these games out, especially if you are looking for something a little different on your smartphone.
Puzzle & Dragons
This has had a huge impact on mobile game design. In face it is the first mobile game in history to reach $1 billion in revenue, and that is because this puzzle game is just pure fun. While it seems quite simple on the surface, move and match coloured orbs arranged in a grid, like many other games you might have tried, your success increases the attack damage your six dragons do against your enemies. It is hugely replayable and surprisingly deep.
Produced by the original creator of Final Fantasy, Terra Battle is a tactical RPG set across a static grid. Using tile-based tactics, Terra Battle earns its place in your collection through its super fun puzzle and collectible card game elements. This is an underrated gem that will test both your skills and your patience.
Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector
What a bizarre, but lovely game that fits perfectly in your pocket. Neko Atsume has you luring cute cats to your background with delicious treats and toys and then doing your best to make them stay. It has all the delights of owning a cat, but without any of the fur balls.
Ace Attorney: Phoenix Wright Trilogy HD
If you have never owned a Nintendo DS, there is a chance the Ace Attorney franchise passed you by. But now the Phoenix Wright Trilogy arrives in style. Play as a rookie lawyer defending the innocent in 14 exciting cases, investigating crime scenes and talking to the courtroom.
The World Ends With You: Solo Remix
If you ever wanted a window into Japan’s unique culture, you just need to play The World Ends With You. It is an action RPG that leans heavily on urban fantasy elements. The narrative is fantastic.
One of the most popular games from Japan, this is another smart puzzler that will keep your fingers as busy as your brain. A basic tile-matching structure combines well with the ability to aim and flick monsters on the field.
Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective
If you are bored of simple pick-up-and-play games and need for something a little deeper, Ghost Trick is for you. It is a quirky story about a ghost seeking answers and trying to save lives.
If there is one developer that knows how to create a deep, tactical RPG, it is Square Enix. Quick to learn but deep with strategic possibilities, Heavenstrike Rivals’ player versus player combat is constantly engaging, hugely enjoyable and it will certainly keep you busy for hours.
Dodonpachi Blissful Death
Look past the retro graphics and you will find one of the most challenging and replayable games available. Dodonpachi is a legendary shooter, forcing you to take control of a ship through exhilarating, projectile-filled screens; it is a real skill test.
Final Fantasy IX
Final Fantasy is one of the biggest franchises in the world and it arrived on mobile devices in style. VI and VII were great, but it is the ninth instalment that will really grab you. The controls work with grace, and you can turn off random encounters if you just want to soak up the incredible world. It is a stunning, deep, JRPG.
