The Last Remnant Remastered is the latest RPG from Square Enix to arrive on Android, available today for $20

Square Enix has just surprised RPG fans by releasing The Last Remnant Remastered on Android and iOS for $19.99, hot off the heels of the releases for Romancing SaGa 3, and SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions. What strikes me as odd about today's lowkey launch is that Square Enix didn't announce the title in any shape or form for mobile (though a Nintendo Switch version was released this summer), and after the lukewarm reception for the two SaGa games mentioned above, I have to wonder if Square Enix's pricing for its mobile titles is starting to wear thin on fans and consumers alike.

SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions is Square Enix's latest JRPG to land on the Play Store

In September, we learned that SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions (the twelfth entry in the SaGa series) would arrive on Android on December 3rd. Lo and behold, the game is now officially available on the Play Store for $23.99, a lofty price that almost matches last month's launch of Romancing SaGa 3. As expected, this is a premium release, so there are no in-app purchases or advertisements to worry about. What you see is what you get, and what you get is an enhanced Square Enix JRPG suitable for play on mobile devices.

Battle Breakers is the first title to join Fortnite on the Epic Games launcher

Battle Breakers has been in testing on the Play Store since 2017, but Epic has unceremoniously turned the servers off for the Play Store version, most likely because the game has been officially launched through the Epic Games launcher, a third-party app that was previously known as the Fortnite Installer. If you're unfamiliar with Battle Breakers, it's a free-to-play RPG that contains hero collection mechanics. The story revolves around menacing monsters from space that have trapped the world's heroes inside of magical crystals, and of course, it will be your job to free these heroes by fighting these monsters in an RPG setting.

Classic Square Enix RPG 'Romancing SaGa 3' comes to the West for the first time

During E3 2019, Square Enix announced that Romancing SaGa 3, a classic RPG that was originally released on the Super Famicom system exclusively in Japan in 1995, would finally come to the West before the year was out. This announcement was shortly followed by the news that November 11th would be the official release day, and lo and behold Square Enix has kept its promise. Romancing SaGa 3 is indeed available on the Play Store as a premium release starting today, though you will have to cough up $25.99 if you'd like to jump in.

[Update: Out now] American Dad! Apocalypse Soon is a corny Fallout Shelter clone cashing in soon

American Dad! Apocalypse Soon is a freshly announced strategy game from My.com B.V. that's coming to Android this fall. The game suspiciously looks a lot like Fallout Shelter, but instead of searching out new survivors, you'll have to clone Rodger in an effort to form an army large enough to manage your household and save the world. Apocalypse Soon is already available on the Play Store for pre-registration, and if enough people pre-register, they may unlock a few rewards.

Durango: Wild Lands to shut down December 18, in-app purchases removed today

The development of the MMO crafting game Durango: Wild Lands was a lengthy one, with many delays and hiccups along the way. Back in May, the game finally arrived on Android as a finished product, but I guess things haven't been going well since the developers have announced that the title will be shut down on December 18th. Sometime today, all in-app purchases will be removed, and the final story for the game is currently in preparation, so it looks like development will continue until December despite the lack of IAPs.

Zombieland: Double Tapper is a F2P idle game that serves double-duty as an advertisement

Zombieland: Double Tapper is a new release that comes from Sony Pictures, and it's a tie-in product for the Zombieland: Double Tap movie coming to theatres on the 18th. Like most branded titles, this is a free-to-play game, and it's essentially an idle tapper that contains gacha mechanics. So you better believe you can expect heavy monetization that's tied to the game's many loot boxes and currencies, all wrapped up in a title that serves as an advertisement for a movie. That's right. Sony would like everyone to sink money into an advertisement disguised as a game, which just about sums up the current state of F2P mobile gaming.

[Update: Early access release] Sky: Children of the Light is coming to Android, and you can pre-register right now

Sky: Children of the Light comes from Thatgamecompany, the same developer behind the critically-acclaimed titles Journey, Flower, and Flow. Sky offers an experience closest to that of Journey, where the player gets to explore a beautiful world in an effort to discover an evolving story that's told through meditative puzzle-based gameplay. Unlike Journey, Sky is a title that was built to focus more on a multiplayer aesthetic where players can easily team up with friends and strangers to journey through the world together while solving the game's many puzzles. Sky: Children landed on iOS at the tail end of last week, but it is also coming to Android sometime in the future, and you can pre-register on the Play Store right now.

Marvel Realm of Champions is the followup to Contest of Champions, coming to Android in 2020

Kabam and Netmarble are teaming up once again with Marvel to bring a new real-time RPG to Android. This title is known as Marvel Realm of Champions, and it will serve duty as the followup to Marvel Contest of Champions. It's expected to land sometime in 2020. Apparently, Realm of Champions will offer a reimagining of the Marvel Universe that's set on Battleworld, a forbidden planet hidden behind the Space-Time Barrier recently disrupted by the death of Maestro, the God-King. This results in a universe-wide battle themed around the Secret Wars event from 1984.
