We gathered up the hottest video games coming to our mobile stores this year, ones that people will be losing their minds over if they haven’t been already!
Surely, there’s no one who would want to miss these game sequels, adaptations, and originals from developers that bring inventive freshness to the genre through every release. With groundbreaking releases from Epic Games, EA, Naughty Dog, and a lot more, 2020 is beginning to look like a good time for gamers.
Do you hear that? That’s the hype train coming in. And you better get in fast. Here’s a quick list of the games we’re definitely going to have our paws on soon.
The Last of Us Part II
2013’s favourite heroine Ellie is all grown up. She takes centre stage as an average 19-year-old girl living in a post-apocalyptic world along with four new characters waiting to be discovered. This action-adventure horror sequel picks up its storyline five years from the first game set in Jackson, Wyoming, where Joel and Ellie have pursued to live a steady life, as far as post-pandemic lifestyles go.
Developers, Naughty Dog, even stated that this was the longest game they’ve ever released so far. Is there a prayer circle to prevent the pushing back of its release date? Because we want in!
Animal Crossing: New Horizons
Platform: Nintendo Switch
Animal Crossing fans, listen up! There’s no need to feed on crumbs anymore. You have been deprived of Animal Crossing updates long enough. As its release date nears and pre-orders open, you can almost smell the fresh breeze in your very own island to name and govern.
Help your citizens live a harmonious life in the sandy paradise of your creation by becoming their dutiful mayor. The setting may be different, but rest assured, you’ll be reunited with beloved characters like Isabelle. This time, you will be challenged by the gameplay heavily focused on crafting much like a castaway. But don’t fret, the game is confirmed to be co-op.
Platform: Android and iOS devices
You really thought we’d forget about mobile gamers on this list? Well, you thought wrong. Activision Blizzard is set to serve us with an RPG hack and slash that was received so well upon announcement. Emphasis on ‘was’. Fans have been expressing their rage through memes over the lack of updates on its release. However, true Diablo fans are still holding up faith in the quality releases of the developers, time and time again.
We doubt that the developers are in any worry over this, though. According to recent data from GamingScan, their sales continue to grow year after year on different platforms. Perhaps, all there is left for us to do is to trust the saying, “you can’t rush brilliance.”
Platform: Android and iOS devices

So yes, this battle royale game-changer is shaping up to be friendlier to mobile gamers. In the meantime, maybe you can start practising shooting and sliding with different heroes on your PC. Don’t forget to optimize your software and hardware settings, too.
