[Update: Out now, and it's awful] The Gang Sells Out: 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' is getting a mobile game

That's right, a TV show that has in the past ridiculed the addictiveness of online video games is actually jumping on the mobile gaming bandwagon with little to no sense of irony. Not only is It’s Always Sunny: The Gang Goes Mobile an actual free-to-play Android game set to release later this year, but it will include questionable mechanics such as collecting fan-favorite characters. As if the last two seasons of the TV show weren't bad enough, now we can expect this blatant cash grab to hit the Play Store before the year is out.

Skylanders Ring of Heroes lands on the Play Store with all your favorite Spyro characters in tow

Skylanders Ring of Heroes is a new free-to-play team-based gacha RPG that was just launched on the Google Play Store, all thanks to a partnership between Activision and Com2uS. Much of the game's inspiration comes from Summoners War, another gacha RPG from Com2uS. Of course, Skylanders Ring of Heroes brings along its own set of heroes that stem from the Skylanders universe as well as an original story that fleshes out its hero-collection gameplay.

Deep Silver finally gets around to releasing 'Dead Island: Survivors' on Android

Dead Island: Survivors has been available as a soft-launched title on iOS since 2016, and the Android beta followed right along with it. As an Android user, I had all but forgotten about its existence in the last two years since the beta was not available to me in my region. It's not uncommon for iOS and Android games to sit in testing for a while, but two years is kind of pushing it. I suppose that could explain why Deep Silver FISHLABS officially released this on the down-low. Still, if you are looking for a free-to-play zombie-themed tower defense game that also contains plenty of action RPG gameplay and base building, Dead Island: Survivors should cover your needs just fine.

Square Enix is bringing 'Star Ocean: Anamnesis' to the West, and pre-registration is open

Square Enix is actually bringing Star Ocean: Anamnesis to the West, and you can pre-register for a release announcement right now on the Google Play Store. One thing to understand is that this title has been available in Japan since 2016, which is why it's so surprising to see an English translation in the works two years later. For the most part, this plays just like one of Square's other gacha games Mobius Final Fantasy. This means you can expect to play in portrait as you dodge enemies, time your attacks, and manage your abilities to destroy everything coming your way.

[Hands-on] Dungeon Hunter Champions, a mashup of ARPG and MOBA mechanics that result in nothing special

Gameloft's Dungeon Hunter is a very well known action RPG series for Android, and it looks like the studio is trying to evolve it into something new so that they can latch onto the latest trend of MOBA gameplay. That's why they created Dungeon Hunter Champions. Not only does it contain all of the ARPG gameplay you enjoyed in their earlier Dungeon Hunter titles, but there are also a few different PvP modes thrown into the mix including a 5v5 MOBA battlefield. I suppose the devs feel this will appeal to old and new fans alike, which really isn't a terrible strategy.

[Hands-on] Disney Heroes: Battle Mode, a boring auto-brawler with a kid-friendly theme

PerBlue Entertainment's Disney Heroes: Battle Mode is an upcoming free-to-play hero collection auto-brawler that takes advantage of both Disney and Pixar licenses for its theme. I have been able to get my hands on a working pre-release version, so I figured why not give some insight on what this game has to offer before it officially releases so that our readers will have a good idea what to expect. So without further ado, here are my thoughts on the beta of Disney Heroes: Battle Mode.
