Gacha games are not for everyone. They’re very addictive but oh so satisfying when you get a good roll. The term “Gachapon” or “Gashapon” (Gacha, for short) originated from Japan which refers to a vending machine capsule. Gacha games use this capsule mechanic to allow players to spend virtual currency to get a random character or loot. However, which ones are worth your time and money? Here are the list of Top 5 Mobile Gacha games for November 2018.
#5 Brave Frontier
Probably one of the firsts, Brave Frontier is an old school pixel RPG that probably started it all. There are over 400 legendary heroes available for you to play with classic JRPG elements. You can explore the world of Grand Gaia with over 500 story-driven mission. The more plot points you discover, the more intertwining they’ll be. It’s definitely a must-play game. Brave Frontier is available in iOS and Android. Initial in-app purchase costs are around Php 45.
#4 Fire Emblem Heroes
If you love Fire Emblem, then you will love Fire Emblem Heroes. It’s the same concept as the last 3 on the list but with over 500 story stages available. In addition to the main story, you can strengthen your allies and compete with other players using original Hero characters and classic fire Emblem Characters. Playable for both iOS and Android with in-app purchases starting at $ 1.99(Php 104).
#3 Food Fantasy
If Diner Dash/Cooking Dash had a baby with Final Fantasy this will be out. Out of all five in the list, this is my personal favorite. Food Fantasy allows you to summon food souls and fight fallen angels while managing your restaurant and gathering ingredients. Combined with the high-quality visuals and wonderful voice acting, this is an absolutely delicious treat to play. Enjoy playing on iOS and Android with in-app purchases as low as $0.99 (Php 52).
#2 Final Fantasy Brave Exvius
If you’re more into an RPG with Gacha elements FFBE is perfect for you. This game brings 8 bit battles to your mobile phone with a deep story and Final Fantasy lore. You can also get your favorite characters from other Final Fantasy games. It’s a modern classic RPG for any Final Fantasy fan. FFBE is available on both iOS and Android with in-app purchases starting at $0.99 (Php 52).
#1 Fate Grand Order
It’s no surprise that Fate will be number one on this list. Based on the Anime, Fate Grand Order allows you to summon your favorite Heroic Spirit and fight across various timelines. You can choose from the JPN (Japan) server and NA (North America) server but if you want good rolls, I’d recommend the JPN server. Here, every gacha game is all about luck but be wary about spending too much on Fate Grand Order. You can play Fate on iOs and Android with your in-app purchase starting at $0.99 (Php 52).
Please remember that you don’t have to buy any in-app purchases to fully enjoy this game. The full experience is in the grind of patiently waiting and getting a lucky roll. Are you a fan of gacha games? Which ones are your favorites? Let us know if we missed anything on our list.
