Square Enix revealed Dragon Quest The Adventure of Dai: A Hero's Bonds last year, but at the time, the game was only slated for a Japanese release. As of this morning, we now know the game is coming to the West with an English translation in tow. It's already listed on the Play Store for pre-registration, and a closed beta will kick off on April 7th, which you can sign up for on the official website.
If you're a OnePlus user, you might be aware of two release channels. There's the stable one, where releases meant for the general public go, and the Open Betas, where you can have a taste of new releases earlier than usual and help spot bugs before one actually hits the stable branch. But in addition to those there's also a Closed Beta program — a more exclusive group that gets bleeding-edge releases before anyone else does. Sound good? Well, if you have a OnePlus 9 or 9 Pro, then OnePlus wants you to join.
At the beginning of the year, Square Enix announced two mobile games themed around Final Fantasy VII, more than likely a reaction to the Remake's success on PS4. Of course, since Square is often reactionary to its successes, these two mobile offshoots didn't have any release dates. Of the two games, Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier has recently entered into a closed beta test, and since I got in, I've recorded a 20-minute gameplay video of my first jump in what is clearly a PUBG clone. So if you're eager to see Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier's battle royale gameplay in action, I indeed show off what the closed beta currently has to offer.
Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier is one of two Final Fantasy VII mobile games Square had announced back in February. This particular game is a battle royale, and it just entered into pre-registration on the Play Store. Those who chose to pre-reg are throwing their hat in the ring for access to an upcoming closed beta test planned for June 1st. So if you're eager to see how Square can capitalize on the battle royale trend, then you'll probably want to check out today's fresh pre-reg listing.
Electronic Arts has finally revealed that it's bringing the hit battle royale game Apex Legends to mobile. As a matter of fact, this mobile version will enter into a closed beta test later this month on Android. Sadly only a few thousand players in India and the Philippines will be able to take part in this newly-announced testing phase, though there are plans to roll the game out to further regions as the year progresses. Much like the PC and console versions of the game, this mobile adaptation will be free-to-play.
Square Enix has announced that its free-to-play collection-based tactical RPG Dragon Quest Tact will be coming to the West on both Android and iOS. Back in February (2020), Square announced the game for Japan, and it would appear it was launched in July (2020) and has already racked up 500,000 installs. I suppose this success is the reason the game will soon come to new territories. While the English version isn't slated for a release until 2021, it's already available for pre-registration on the Google Play Store.
OnePlus has two pre-release software channels — a closed beta for loyal fans willing to sacrifice stability for a chance to shape the future of Oxygen OS and an open beta for everyone who's just curious what's coming next with no strings attached. The company has just started looking for people with a OnePlus 8T willing to join the exclusive beta group. If you own the phone and are an active member of the OnePlus Community, you can apply to become one of the 200 testers.
OnePlus runs one of the more public-facing software-testing operations among the phone makers we cover at Android Police and it's little surprise to see another launch of beta testing groups — this time for its latest phone, the Nord.
Asus released its first Android 11 beta build last week — not for the latest ZenFone 7 line but yesteryear’s ZenFone 6. It’s not typical for companies to treat their older models with latest Android updates before their current flagships, but nothing seems to be going straight in 2020, so what the heck. The ZenFone 7 and 7 Pro are at last catching up with their predecessor as they’re now getting their own Android 11 beta program, which you can sign up for right away.
Marvel Super War is a newly-announced MOBA from NetEase and Marvel Entertainment that's coming to Android and iOS, and it just entered into its first closed beta. The title will feature everyone's favorite heroes and villains from the Marvel universe, and each character will offer a variety of powers that players will be able to utilize in combat.
