New Mob Psycho 100 Turn-Based RPG Now Out
Crunchyroll continues to expand its library of anime-inspired games.
Crunchyroll Games has announced that Mob Psycho 100: Psychic Battle--a turn-based RPG mobile game based on the popular anime series--is out today. Psychic Battle joins Crunchyroll Games' expanding library of anime-based titles, which includes bubble shooter Bungo Stray Dogs: Tales of the Lost, gacha RPG Grand Summoners, and puzzle game RWBY: Crystal Match. The game is available for both iOS and Android devices.
In Psychic Battle, you explore the world of Mob Psycho 100--specifically the locations from the first two seasons of the anime. Your journey will see you meet characters from the Mob Psycho 100 universe, many of whom are voiced by their original voice actors. Each character possesses unique attacks, special skills, and passive abilities, allowing you to curate your ideal team for fighting in PvE and PvP battles. Outside of battling, you can participate in weekend fishing competitions and care for an in-game pet.
Mob Psycho 100 was one of the breakout anime hits of 2016, winning fanfare with its easy-to-love titular hero, compelling character development, and colorful sense of style in its opening sequence and supernatural battles. The anime sees Shigeo Kageyama, nicknamed Mob, attempting to live a normal high school life when he's secretly one of the most powerful espers in the world. He's so strong that he has to keep his emotions in check or risk losing control of his psychic powers.
The anime continued in 2019 with Mob Psycho 100 II, one of the best series of both the winter season and the year as a whole. If you're looking for more good anime, consider checking out GameSpot's Winter 2020 anime guide.
Mobile gaming continues to be one of the most popular spaces in the industry. In 2019, for the second year in a row, Fate/Grand Order beat out Fortnite for the most talked-about game on Twitter (according to Twitter Gaming). The year also saw the launch of Apple Arcade and Google Play Pass, both game-based subscription services for mobile games, and the former promotes a pretty stellar collection of titles--all of which lack microtransactions. Mobile gaming is on the rise, and it's better than ever.
