Gacha Games took over the mobile gaming world in 2019, with tons of amazing games being released on Android and iOS. And today we’re taking on the really difficult task of sharing with you the best gacha games for mobile to play in 2020.
If you are an avid gacha RPG player, these games will probably keep you glued to your device more than they should – but you know you will like it! You probably have tried some on our list already, but if you didn’t, it’s time to do so!
Without further ado, these are our top 15 best gacha games for mobile in 2020, in no particular order:
This will have to be among the best mobile games that I have played! Literally. It’s catchy, combines mecha with anime and CGI stuff and it also packs quite a funny story.
The gacha system is pretty catchy too! It is a great choice if you want to enjoy good graphics, try your luck with the RNG and have a good and chill time. The game has a ton of events and an active community, so that is a major plus!
The Alchemist Code
If you’re a fan of RPGs and strategy games with a (very addictive) gacha mechanic, The Alchemist Code is definitely a game you should try. You can collect and customize tons of characters and assemble a team with your favorite heroes.
The game’s graphics tend to be more towards the classic style, which, when combined with the turn-based battles, might remind you of the old Final Fantasy games (the really old ones, like FF3 and the like).
The “good graphics” warriors (who don’t play a game for its game play, but rather for its graphics) will have nothing bad to say about Langrisser, since it combines amazing animations with stunning 2D and 3D graphics into a turn based classic RPG that has pretty much everything you could’ve wanted from the genre: cute chibi battle characters, strategic thinking and “gifted” girls.
One Piece Bounty Rush
If you like animes, it’s impossible that you haven’t heard of One Piece or watched it. This game features all the anime’s characters or at least the most important ones – but it doesn’t mean that it’s a game only One Piece fans will appreciate.
No, this is a great gacha game that will keep everybody entertained: it’s a fun and exciting capture the flag kind of game which lets you play as one of the anime’s characters and use their skills in battle to prove your supremacy.
Tales of Erin
Tales of Erin is a game that will not only amaze you through stunning graphics, but also with its super catchy story and intense battles. In a way, it is similar to Epic Seven. They both have exciting battle animations and a very similar camera perspective on battles.
But, dare I say, it might be even better! I definitely suggest giving it a try if you’re into games with anime graphics and a super satisfying gacha system. Tales of Erin might just end up being your next favorite game!
Disney Heroes: Battle Mode
You don’t have to be a kid to love this marvelous gacha game featuring all sorts of Disney heroes battling it all out in various game modes! So even if you enjoyed that Wreck-It Ralph movie at 90 years old or at 12, you will still find Disney Heroes: Battle Mode extremely addictive and high quality..
Because it has that many famous Disney characters, you will have to decide on just a few that should make it to your team (but still collect them all, of course!). I mean, Wall-E makes the game all in itself worth it, so give it a try!
You want to save the time and space? You want to be part of an epic anime line up? You want to fight, but not really? Well, this game has it all!
Kinda like a visual novel combined with a great RPG in the anime style, you should definitely give this game a try, especially if you watched all the animes prior to it (which is what got me interested in it in the first place).
Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius
This is a game that follows the very famous Final Fantasy franchise, so it’s kinda impossible not to have heard about it before. Just like with the other Final Fantasy games, you will have a very good time if you like the genre.
The amazing graphics combined with the fun and exciting play style and interesting story line, bring it in my top 3 gacha games ever. And even though this game is not getting younger, it can still pack a punch and keep you entertained with all its heroes available for collecting, with all the action and events regularly taking place. Give it a try!
Marvel Strike Force
A world-famous line up of superheroes: everything that you could expect from Marvel, with a bit of sugar sprinkled on top! This is what Marvel Strike Force is all about, so if you are not into the anime visuals and Disney ones, this one’s the obvious choice for you. Of course, even if you love anime, you can still fully enjoy Marvel Strike Force!
Since some of the characters are not as hard to obtain as in other games mentioned in this article, this game is perfect for the casual player who also wants to spend some RL time, but also enjoy a good RPG game as a free to play player.
I suggest not playing this game out in public, as some of the loading screens might make the other people question your actions. That’s right, this game is another not-so-kid-friendly one, with good (actually, quite amazing I’d say) graphics and systems in the anime style.
Having the cool graphics and play style, it draws many people in and keeps them hooked, so the community is also quite active and helpful! It’s definitely a must-try if you like the genre.
Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle
The childhood hero of many people, and the one others couldn’t stand: Goku will be among the famous characters you can get in this game, because, let’s be real, it would not be Dragon Ball Z without him.
If you like loud screams and action packed anime inspired games, this is the gacha game for you!
Although it’s not a new name, Dragalia Lost is an epic game that will keep you glued to your device (I can guarantee that from my own experience). Dragalia Lost has some cute graphics, which go together perfectly with the overall feel of the game. It also has a super interesting story, which you’ll probably end up reading rather than skipping through.
But you know what’s even better than an epic anime gacha game? Dragons! In Dragalia Lost you can even transform into dragons… Need I say more? I don’t think so – just try it. You won’t be disappointed!
This is a game that has been with us for quite some time now, but which still manages to amaze and remain relevant in today’s world, even though its gameplay mechanics and visuals might seem a bit rough around the edges.
But with over 400 heroes to collect and tons of things to do in the game itself, Brave Frontier remains one of the ultimate gacha games available on mobile right now and one of the most popular ever released. And, after all this time, it remains as beginner-friendly as possible, so if you haven’t tried it already and you are a fan of the genre, do give it a try!
Download it on iOS and Android.
RAID: Shadow Legends
An amazing RPG game that mixes deep strategic thinking with rarely seen hero customization, RAID: Shadow Legends is one of the more recently launched games on our list, but definitely one to stay.
With great graphics and a huge community playing the game each day, this is one of those title that had to be released on mobile to prove to the entire world that really high quality games can be created for mobile platforms and available for free.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross
I might be a bit biased here, but that doesn’t mean 7DS is not one of the best gacha games out there, especially after the latest updates. The animations, action and gacha system of the game are simply some of the best I’ve seen. Might I say, they could even be on par with Epic Seven and Tales of Erin.
If you’ve watched the Seven Deadly Sins anime, you can expect a similar storyline within the game. Basically, you’ll have CGI-animated scenes which follow the story in the anime. I definitely suggest playing it if you want a high-quality gacha game for mobile.
These are all the games that we have considered to have something special and thus made it to the top 15.
There are many other good games that almost made it to our list, but the top 15 we have listed here have something that we considered special, different than all the others. I found it quite difficult to not add Dragon Ball Legends, so if you’re looking for a very honorable mention, there it is – it’s Dragon Ball Legends.
