Join the rest of the Knights Zodiac in their battle to fight evil in this Android title based on the hit anime from the 80s. Awakening came out in 2019 and surprisingly the community is still active with consistent updates every season. Android players will enjoy its stylish turn-based gameplay, alongside a new art style that brings new life to our favorite Saint Seiya characters. Fans of the anime will find a ton of content here, but new players can expect a challenging story mode and PvP. A playscore of 7.71.
Of course, when it comes to Anime-based Android games, the iconic Dragon Ball franchise will always find its way to be a part of the conversation. Dokkan Battle is not your typical mobile entry. Its gameplay is far from the rest of the series, as it involves you tapping tactically to defeat opponents. It still relies heavily on mobile’s Gacha formula, but for a title that came out in 2015, Dokkan Battle still gets updates, including a new mode coming soon. A playscore of 7.90.
8. Pokemon Go
5 years ago, Pokemon Go was a mobile game phenomenon that left an indelible mark on society. No one expected a Pokemon game to actually make us go outside in search of the rarest pocket monsters. There are a ton of ways to bypass this chore, but the fun has always been around exploration. More updates are coming for PoGo, despite COVID-19. So don’t go out just yet. It receives a playscore of 7.91.
Compared to Go, this Pokemon game is designed for staying at home. Perfect for this pandemic. Shuffle Mobile borrows notable mechanics from popular mobile titles such as Candy Crush and integrates it with our favorite Pokemon signature. Using match-three puzzles, we battle and catch over 150 Pokemon and even evolve our own to aid us in battle. It’s easy to learn and it can be enjoyed without paying any money. A playscore of 7.98.
Relive the Soul Reaping adventures from Tite Kubo’s popular Shonen title. Remaining true to his anime roots, the game takes on the joys of the hack and slash genre that's beautifully portrayed with their signature eye-popping visuals. Explore a wealth of choices for single and multiplayer game modes. Witness Ichigo's first chapters in story mode, complete quests with four other friends, or battle against players from around the world with PvP content. With new sidequests made especially for the game, it's a whole universe of Bleach-centric content that will make any fan squeal with glee. A playscore of 8.13.
It’s the oldest game on this list. Form your hearty crew of landlubbers and sail to the vast waters in Bandai Namco’s Mobile One Piece game. Relive your favorite One Piece moments from Eiichiro Oda’s long-running Anime. The game’s combat relies on intense finger tapping action. With just the use of one finger, unleash powerful combos to take down rogue pirates. It’s easily the strongest One Piece game on the mobile right now. A playscore of 8.18.
A game based on an anime inside a videogame. Yes, we are going full circle here. Follow your favorite anime characters, Kirito, Asuna, Leafa, and Sinon as they delve into digital worlds in this side-scrolling adventure. Relive iconic moments, and relish new scenes made directly for the game. Raise your swords, and ready your spells as you faceoff with the anime's towering archnemeses. It's a fun and addicting game on its own. Just make sure you don't get stuck in this game’s world. It has a playscore of 8.20.
It’s not officially an anime, but given the state of ATLUS’ spin-off SMT projects, there’s bound to be more Persona and Shin Megami Tensei shows soon. This JRPG is a part of the larger universe of the Megami Tensei franchise, but don’t expect the same level of narrative depth compared to their mainline titles. It’s still a mobile game and its gameplay loop is a gacha with turn-based elements. Recruit over 200 demons and let them raze hell in its demented world. A playscore of 8.23.
The second Dragon Ball title on this list and definitely the best of their mobile entries. As a mobile entry, it uses card-based combat instead of the usual button-mashing we know from their older console counterparts. Dragon Balls’ signature flying combat is still around. With a simple tap of your fingers, feel the rush of power levels as you take down opponents. The better your deck, the cooler your moves. A playscore of 8.24.
Become the world's best duellist and defeat its iconic roster of villains in this long-running trading card game from Konami. Begin your journey to the top as Yami Yugi or Seto Kaiba. With your deck in hand, take to its futuristic arenas and fight against an assortment of beautifully animated monsters including Dark Magician, Exodia, and more. With original voice-overs and in-depth duels, it's the perfect game for beginners and veterans alike with a playscore of 8.30.
