Characters from NIKKE

Possibly the most cultured game of the year, Nikke Goddess of Victory is a science fiction shooter game where you train a squad of girls skilled in the use of artillery. In this setting, humanity is endangered, its population having been reduced to ashes by an enemy known as the Rapture. The only thing that has to stop them is the Nikkes, super-powered girls who are humanity’s last chance for survival. If you enjoy shooters and cute characters, this is definitely one to check out.


The CEOs office in Counterside

This was a fantastic year for Counterside, the popular Korean game having made a successful global launch after being exclusive to SEA. This game puts the player into the perspective of a mysterious character who takes ownership of an organization known as the Coffin Company. This firm trains and hires Counters, superhumans who fight evil in the universe called the Corruption. With a fantastic plotline, this is one you won’t want to put down. Counterside also did a successful collaboration with Holomyth recently, the famous virtual YouTuber group, so it’s safe to say it was a great 12 months for them.

Fate Grand Order

Fate Grand Order is one of the oldest gacha games, but somehow it continues to remain on top. Some gacha games can get to a point where you feel at a plateau. This never happens in Fate because there are always new events to participate in. 2022 was a packed year for the game, with the North American server getting the long-awaited Olympus chapter as well as Muramasa. With the Avalon chapter expected to drop this spring, 2023 is shaping up to be just as good.
