Pokémon Unite brings its free-to-play MOBA gameplay to mobile with full cross-platform support

Pokémon Unite brings its free-to-play MOBA gameplay to mobile with full cross-platform support

In August, we learned that Pokémon Unite would be making its way from the Nintendo Switch to Android and iOS on September 22nd, which is today. After a brief pre-load period yesterday, Unite's mobile servers are now officially live. This is a free-to-play 5v5 MOBA that offers a slick Pokémon theme, but it's also a Tencent title, and so it's packed with in-app purchases, some of which can be used to gain an advantage over non-paying players, ensuring Pokémon Unite is pay-to-win. Luckily this is a casual MOBA, so the competitive scene is nothing like Dota 2 or League of Legends, dulling the edge of the pay-to-win monetization.

That Pokémon MOBA all your friends are playing on Switch lands on Android next month

That Pokémon MOBA all your friends are playing on Switch lands on Android next month

The last we heard about the mobile version of Pokémon UNITE was back in June when The Pokémon Company and TiMi Studio Group announced the MOBA would land sometime in September but failed to provide an actual date. This left both companies open to execute another announcement, which was made today during the latest Pokémon Presents. As of this morning, we now know Pokémon UNITE will be released on Android and iOS on September 22nd, and better yet, pre-registration is finally open on the Play Store, clearly illustrating the ramp-up to next month's launch.

Pokémon Unite is heading to Android this September

Pokémon Unite is heading to Android this September

The Official Pokémon YouTube channel has announced a new Pokémon game for Android, iOS, and the Nintendo Switch. It's called Pokémon Unite, and it's a MOBA. As you would expect, you'll be tasked with collecting Pokémon as part of the MOBA's team-based online-multiplayer battle arena gameplay. Unsurprisingly, Pokémon Unite is being developed in partnership with Tencent, so I fully expect the game to land as a blatant cash grab, just like Pokémon Café Mix. Clearly, The Pokemon Company is intent on running this franchise through the mud, just so long as it can make a quick buck with lazy clones on mobile.

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.2c adds a new champion, skins, events, plus a host of improvements

League of Legends: Wild Rift 2.2c adds a new champion, skins, events, plus a host of improvements

The open beta for League of Legends: Wild Rift kicked off in March, and so I took the MOBA for a spin to see how it stood up to the competition. I came away impressed, but for a live service game like this, development never stops, and so the latest patch drops today. Version 2.2c brings with it many new additions, including a brand new champion, eight new skins, some new accessories, a couple of new events, plus tons of champion balance patches. Not all of this will be available at once, but you can expect this content to trickle out by the end of the month.
