The future is now. The year 2022 is just around the corner and we already know what’s going to happen in mobile gaming. The best games of tomorrow are here today! In this video gaming blog post, the following list will take a look at some of the most exciting upcoming mobile titles, as well as make predictions for Game of the Year-winner. The list includes:
2020: Age of Robots
The year 2020 will mark the rise of a new robot empire. The human race is now endangered and it’s up to you, as an android soldier known as “A209,” to defeat them once and for all! The gameplay in 2020: Age of Robots resembles The World Ends with You but set in a dystopian future. The futuristic combat uses simple swipes on your screen- no buttons required!
This game has been highly anticipated by fans everywhere since its announcement back at E³ this past June. The developers have promised that 2020: Age of Robots will be released sometime towards the end of 2021 or early 2022 . Fans can expect a battle system similar to their previous title, Another Eden. It focuses more on action than The World Ends with You. The graphics are top-notch and the gameplay is smooth. The delay in 2020: Age of Robots has been a controversial topic among fans. But most agree that it’s worth the wait!
In 2021…We Fight Back
A new alien race rises from beyond our galaxy as Earth falls into chaos following years upon years of destruction by robots, warlords, and environmental disasters. In response to this galactic crisis comes “Armada,” humanity’s last hope against the extraterrestrial horde. The developers behind Armada promise a unique combat system where players can strategize and develop an unbeatable battle plan. The graphics are stunning, with realistic animations that give off a smooth arcade vibe. The world’s lore is deep and complex- the details found in the game will be enough to keep players engaged for hours! Armada was announced at this year’s E³ as well but no release date has been set as of yet .
In 2022… The World Ends With You: Final Remix
The long awaited third installment of The World Ends with You finally makes its way onto mobile devices everywhere next year! The remastered version includes all new stories and content along with high definition art and music from both previously released DS games (The World Ends with You & Solo Remix). This version also features a brand new epilogue that ties up loose ends from the original two games. The combat system is identical to its predecessors and will feature touchscreen controls both classic and new!
The second place contender is a bit surprising; you might not have heard of Battle Bay before if you don’t play it on a regular basis. This little gem came out in April 2018 and flew under most people’s radar until now. Players were excited by the unique take on PVP battles that let them upgrade their ships mid-battle rather than after each match. The game’s graphics are just as impressive, with water that sparkles in the light and guns that give off an accurate representation of muzzle flash.
The Great C
The third place contender is also fairly unknown. It’s called The Great C, and was released on Android devices only a few months ago! The gameplay takes its inspiration from classic point-and-click adventure games like Myst or King’s Quest; players must travel through an abandoned world to discover the secrets behind why humans have disappeared all over the planet. The eerie music helps create a sense of mystery throughout your journey towards answers you seek, but may not want to find out.
The Room: Old Sins
The fourth game of the year is more well known – it’s called The Room: Old Sins, and was released in January 2018. The gameplay feels like some sort of gothic dream; players are presented with a series of locked rooms that require solving elaborate puzzles to unlock their secrets. The graphics are beautiful but the real highlight lies within the atmospheric soundtrack. It changes depending on where you are in your journey through this place with no exit.
Monument Valley II
The fifth most popular choice for Game Of The Year 2022 is Monument Valley II, an excellent follow up to one of last year’s biggest hits! This sequel never fails to impress audiences who enjoy its artistic visuals and creative level design. Players can also expect new challenges around every corner as they make their way through the M.C. Escher-inspired landscapes of The Forgotten Shores DLC, released later in 2018.
The sixth most popular choice for Game Of The Year 2022 is Stardew Valley, a fan favorite that has been around since 2016 and continues to hold its ground as one of the best mobile games available today! This RPG/Farming simulator hit #25 on our list last year. But not because it wasn’t deserving players just couldn’t stop raving about Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp instead! Now The Drowned Vault expansion has come out. Adding tons more content to an already solid title with plenty left over from the original version’s success.
The Battle of Polytopia
The Battle of Polytopia is the second game on our list to have won multiple awards. But it’s also one you might not hear much about if you don’t play strategy games. The gameplay focuses around building a civilization from scratch and leading your tribe against other tribes in an attempt to make them submit under your rule! The graphics are simple, almost looking like they were created using basic MS Paint tools. But that doesn’t stop this little gem from being addictive as hell just ask anyone who has played it before!
The eighth place contender was another surprise for us here too; Highrise Heroes only came out at the end of January 2018 so many people haven’t even heard of it yet. But those who have given it rave reviews say the gameplay involves building your own highrise block and populating it with different types of heroes that help you to fight off alien invaders. The graphics are cartoonish but fun, allowing players to fully immerse themselves in this world filled with giant robot ants!
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp
The ninth place contender is one we all expected here at Game Of The Year 2022 HQ; Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp took home top honors last year so why not give it another whirl? This game has only gotten bigger since its release on iOS devices last November. It means there’s even more for avid fans of Nintendo games like Mario Kart or Splatoon to enjoy while playing as some favorite characters from their childhoods. The casual nature makes this a perfect fit for the mobile platform. But players who want to experience it on a larger scale can also pick up an Android version when they’re released this year.
We hope this list helps keep your excitement levels high throughout the coming months. We’ll see you again in 2022!
