Keep reading and enjoy our list of the best upcoming mobile games in 2022!
Are you looking for the best upcoming mobile games? Us too. Of course, there are plenty of great games already available on mobile, so many, in fact, you’d never be able to play every single one of them. But even so, we can’t help but keep one eye on the future, because new games are always exciting.
So, we decided to compile this list of the best mobile games that are set to arrive on phones at some stage. We’ve got everything from exciting new IPs to recognizable franchises making a jump to the mobile gaming realm.
There is likely to be something for everyone, particularly if you enjoy multiplayer gaming. We’ve got MOBAs, battle royales, third-person action titles and RPGs you’ll be able to sink an unfathomable number of hours into.
Riot Games has confirmed that their incredibly popular FPS will be making its way over to mobile devices. Over 14 million players are enjoying the game on PC on a daily basis, so the demand for VALORANT Mobile was always going to be huge.
If you’re – somehow – unfamiliar with the game, it is a 5v5 multiplayer FPS shooter set in the near future. Players can select from a roster of Agents, each of which possesses unique skills and abilities alongside numerous guns such as SMGs, shotguns and assault rifles, among others. There are several game modes to choose from, though the most popular mode uses the traditional attack and defend formula.
DC Heroes & Villains
We can never have too many DCU games, and in this case we’re talking about DC Heroes & Villains. The game takes a very lighthearted approach, adapting to the match-three mechanics that get increasingly more difficult with each stage. But in all that, we see similar features to Puzzles & Survival, which we already know is super fun (if you like that genre, that is)!
With gacha mechanics, hero upgrading and compelling moves based on synergy, we can’t wait for DC Heroes & Villains to come out in 2022!
Diablo Immortal was first announced way back in 2018 and, as such, has appeared on best upcoming mobile games lists for some time now. However, it wasn’t the most positively received announcement at the time, but folks are slowly coming around to the idea of playing Diablo on mobile, in part because what we’ve seen so far looks pretty fantastic. It came a long way from being one of the most hated to one of the most anticipated mobile games!
Much like the PC and console counterparts, Diablo Immortal will allow players to choose from several classes before wading into battle to slay foes whilst gathering plenty of loot. The classic Diablo setup, essentially. The classes currently confirmed are Barbarian, Monk, Necromancer, Wizard, Demon Hunter, Crusader.
Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis
Whilst this list is predominately comprised of upcoming multiplayer mobile games, there are a few single-player options to look forward to, including Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis. Square Enix has always respected mobile as a platform, and their latest announcement is an exciting prospect for fans of the Final Fantasy franchise.
Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is a role-playing game that will receive monthly, episodic installments. It will retell the stories from a plethora of Final Fantasy games, including Advent Children, Before Crisis, Crisis Core, and Dirge of Cerberus. Players can also tackle the story in whichever order they prefer.
Summoners War: Chronicles
Summoners War: Chronicles is a first-ever MMO in the popular franchise that gacha fans are sure to remember well. Gameplay will, of course, shift from turn-based to real-time and it will include more players that you can cooperate with. You’ll be able to do rolls to avoid the enemy attacks and effects, solve puzzles and do a lot more.
Tencent is a name any mobile gamer is very familiar with, so any upcoming titles they announce are bound to be interesting. Undawn is a cooperative zombie survival title heading for iOS and Android. It will boast a mixture of PvE and PvP, where players will have to deal with the zombie hordes whilst contending with other players.
Additionaly they can team up with others and create shelters to provide sanctuary from the zombies whilst trading resources with their pals to ensure they are appropriately stocked with supplies. Admittedly, yet another zombie game doesn’t sound that appealing, but Tencent has earned a reputation for making successful mobile games for a reason.
Path of Exile Mobile
Back in 2019, Grinding Gear Games announced that they were working on a mobile version of their popular dungeon-crawling RPG, Path of Exile. Unlike most of the entries on this list, Path of Exile Mobile isn’t 100 percent confirmed since the developer has previously stated that they won’t release the game if it’s not an enjoyable experience.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited about the concept. Carrying such a sizeable game around in our pockets is a tantalizing prospect, no doubt. Much like Diablo Immortal, there will likely be several character classes to choose from, such as Marauder, Duelist, Ranger, Shadow, Witch, Templar, and Scion, though none of this is confirmed just yet.
Just Cause: Mobile
The Just Cause series has always provided bombastic entertainment, and Square Enix is looking to bring that enjoyment to phones with the aptly named Just Cause: Mobile. Played from an isometric perspective, the game promises over-the-top action across numerous game modes.
Whether you prefer to enjoy a game solo and battle your way through the single-player story campaign or test your skills against other players in the multiplayer mode Triple Threat, you’re well catered for. Alternatively, if you enjoy teaming up with others but not fighting against them, there are also PvE co-op missions on offer for a better sense of camaraderie. We know plenty of you will mark it as the most anticipated upcoming mobile game!
Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade
One of the most anticipated mobile games of 2022 (alongside Kimetsu no Yaiba / Demon Slayer), Jujutsu Kaisen: Phantom Parade is an outstanding turn-based RPG with amazing graphics, unique animations and dialogues, and never-before-seen scenes. Fans of the anime or manga should definitely keep an eye out for this one – I know for sure I will!
At the moment we don’t have a lot of information, but we do know for sure that we’ll get to see the beloved main characters Yuji, Megumi, Kugisaki Nobara, and of course the one that cannot be missing, Gojo Satoru. Ah, and Nanami Kento.
Cookie Run: OvenSmash
Many of you are already familiar with the cookie games from Devsisters – an adorable endless runner or a delicious kingdom builder/RPG. Both of them have fascinated us with their gameplay and incredibly feisty cookies, but the next big player is already in the making. Cookie Run: OvenSmash is the developers’ next project, and it looks like it’s going to play by the meta – a MOBA.
OvenSmash looks like the first 3D game with actually rendered cookies (which look as delicious as we might expect them to be, looking at you Pistachio Cookie) and while the title is not final yet, it is all we need to spike our interest.
Hyde & Seek
Hyde & Seek looks like a dark board game where each and every decision makes for a do or die situation – not literally. This adventure game uses card and turn-based mechanics, as well as a dark, almost Don’t Starve-esque approach, if I could name it that.
Another ARPG that looks promising, Demonborne is currently in Beta testing and from the looks of it, it’s still a long way out. Hopefully, it’ll release sometime in 2022, since this Diablo-like roguelike brings something unique and modern to the genre. It has the mandatory fully-customizable equipment, deadly encounters that rely on perfect timing (as is the custom with the game type), and even a party system so you can have your friends join in on the mayhem!
At this moment in time, we don’t know a lot more about it, but all we can say is that it’s going to be a pretty exciting one and we’re definitely looking forward to checking it out.
An action RPG that has a highly futuristic approach, N-INNOCENCE stays true to the anime genre and combat approach that we often see in popular titles that have amassed a great following. Knowing that you can probably expect this to be trending as soon as it releases.
So far we don’t know too much, but one thing’s for sure, and that is that it looks great. Players will be tasked to assemble a team of up to four members and carry out various attacks based on their skills. There are many ways to develop and improve your strength, just like in many other games of the genre, so put on your best gacha gamer hat and get ready for this game’s release – we know for sure we’re eager to get our hands on it!
Soul Worker Rush
Yet another gacha RPG by the looks of it, Soul Worker Rush might sound familiar because of its predecessor, Soul Worker. While that game has not been the best of the franchise, we can only hope this one to top it off and bring improved gameplay and rates. Right?
Without much to go by at the moment, we can only tell that this game looks like a typical RPG with incremental levels of difficulty and all the good stuff we know (and not necessarily love) from the games of the genre. You can take a look at the teaser below, but that’s all we got right now. Do let us know what you think down in the comments below!
Supercell has announced three different games they are currently working on. The first is Clash Heroes, an action RPG that sees players wading through various stages by battling a plethora of enemies. Each character looks to have its own special abilities in addition to a standard attack.
You can check out some gameplay from Clash Heroes in the embedded video below. Throughout the brief teaser, we see several well-known characters from the series, including the likes of skeleton, archer and barbarian.
We’ve had Punishing: Gray Raven (which already got released), we’ve got SLIME – ISEKAI Memories and we’ve got Dislyte – all these titles got something in common with takt op., and that is they are all beautiful and they’re hella fun RPGs.
Similar to the other titles, takt op. comes with a unique approach. It’s a collab between DeNA and Bandai Namco, and it’s based on the anime with the same name. Never heard of it? That’s because it’s somewhat of a mixed-media project that will probably appeal to many players and fans of the genre.
According to the official statements, “takt op. is a “classical music-themed x bishojo RPG”. So far all we know is that it looks out of this world. And we’re so excited to get our hands on it!
Attack on Titan: Brave Order
If you’re already familiar with Attack on Titan and the thought of a mobile game sends chills down your back, you’re absolutely right in feeling that way. The anime and manga that captivated many through sheer terror and a massive number of killed characters, Attack on Titan, seems to finally receive a game that is worthy of its name.
At first glance, the game looks like what every fan of the series would like to see – exciting and immersive hands-on battles, dialogues, and original art!
Awaken: Astral Blade
This is yet another game that promises a lot, but we don’t see much just yet. It’s still in fairly early stages, but so far this ARPG hack’n’slash looks like a game worth adding to your list.
You are in control of a character called Loretta, who has an alien parasite inside. Because of that, she’s able to harness a lot of power and use it in order to discover what actually happened with the world she lives in. It’s a game with beautiful renditions and visuals, and when it comes to the gameplay, you can probably expect some side-scrolling platformer-like action. So far so good – check out the trailer below!
Undecember is another ARPG that promises a lot in terms of graphics and play style, but that’s about it. We don’t know too much about it yet, but at first glance, it appears to be fairly similar to Diablo Immortal and Path of exile. You’ve got some stunning realistic graphics too, as well as some gorey looking monsters to everyone’s delight.
Demon Slayer: Battle Royal (KimeKimetsu no Yaiba: Keppu Kengeki Royal)
While we’re not sure yet about the actual release date, we do know about Demon Slayer: Battle Royale that it’s going to be absolutely fantastic. From graphics and animations that match the ones in the manga (and anime), this game looks like a battle royale similar to Onmyoji: Arena (after all, we did get the characters in there as limited event characters).
The information we have right now is from the Japanese site, so we can’t tell for certain if anything will change or stay the same when a Global one rolls around. Until then though, we’ll leave you with the trailer below!
This game is the perfect one to conclude our list of upcoming games for 2022. Disney Mirrorverse is an action RPG set in the colorful cartoonish world of Disney. It features a lot of your favorite childhood characters that will be going through a different adventure this time.
When you see a Rapunzel smacking her adversaries with a frying pan, you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about. It’s featuring a lot more characters including the Mickey Mouse, Captain Jack Sparrow, Elsa…
