Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 is up for pre-registration

Sega's Shin Megami Tensei series has been running since 1987, and in the last thirty years some great titles have come and gone including a few offshoot series such as Persona or Devil Summoner. So, of course, it was only a matter of time before a Shin Megami Tensei game was created for mobile. Shin Megami Tensei Liberation Dx2 is the result of that creation and it was released in Japan back in January of this year. I'm also glad to report that an English version is indeed coming over to the West, and you can pre-register for a notification upon its official release starting today.

Terra Battle 2 is shutting down in North America, already taken off the Play Store

As of last night, you can no longer download Mistwalker Corporation's tile-based RPG Terra Battle 2 if you live in the US, even if you've installed the game before. Considering this title was only recently released in the US at the tail end of last year, this announcement is a bit of a surprise. At the very least you can still play if you already have it installed, as the service will be up until September 3rd. Past that date, the game will be totally dead in North America.

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.

Square Enix brings 'Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth' to Android, fully translated and with IAPs

Valkyrie Profile is a classic RPG that was published by Square Enix back in 1999 for the original PlayStation. Unlike the majority of Square's RPGs, this title deviated from the standard top-down exploration and replaced it with unique (at the time) 2D platforming gameplay. To this day it's still considered a cult hit by its fans worthy of being listed alongside the Xenogears or Suikoden series. So it is my great pleasure to announce that the PSP port Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth has found its way to Android, and you can pick it up right now for $15.99.

Nintendo and Cygames have partnered to release a new RPG titled 'Dragalia Lost Read'

Nintendo hasn't released a new game on Android since Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp landed in November 2017. Well, I'm excited to report that I finally have some news on this front. Nintendo and Cygames have announced a new mobile RPG for Android. It's called Dragalia Lost Read. The initial release will take place in Asia this summer, and there should be a worldwide launch sometime after that.

Square Enix's latest RPG 'Dissidia Final Fantasy Omnia' is officially available

Dissidia Final Fantasy Omnia just came out of pre-registration and is officially available on the Play Store. It is a free-to-play gacha RPG that has centered its theme around the Playstation Portable's series of Dissidia Final Fantasy games. Unlike the original PSP titles (and the new PS4 title), the gameplay is turn-based, though it does use the familiar Brave/HP offense/defense system just like the originals.

Jam City unveils a teaser trailer for 'Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery'

Jam City's upcoming RPG Harry Potter: Hogwarts Mystery (not to be confused with Niantic's planned augmented reality Harry Potter title "Wizard's Unite") has just had a teaser trailer released that shows off a few key details of the game. It would appear that players will be creating a personalized Hogwarts student avatar to then roleplay what it would be like to attend classes, learn magical skills, and form friendships or rivalries in the Harry Potter universe.

3D sandbox action-RPG 'Portal Knights' has been ported to Android

Portal Knights is an adorable looking 3D sandbox action-RPG developed by Keen Games and published by 505 Games. It was initially released on PC and consoles back in May of this year and has only recently been ported to Android and published on the Play Store. Its design is obviously very reminiscent of Minecraft, but it differentiates itself by including a few RPG character classes, a wide range of random instanced events, and plenty of epic boss battles.

Naruto x Boruto: Ninja Voltage is Bandai Namco's latest action RPG available on the Play Store

At the beginning of this month I wrote up an article about the pre-registration availability for Bandai Namco's action RPG brawler Naruto x Boruto: Ninja Voltage. Despite the tardiness of this post (thanks to a recent holiday), I figured it would still be worth it to follow up on the pre-registration announcement to let everyone know Naruto x Boruto: Ninja Voltage has indeed been officially released.
