1 – League of Legends Wild Rift

https://youtu.be/pNjWjwae-us

Latest news: League of Legends Wild Rift arrives in March 2021

Yes, I'm aware that everyone knows that this game will arrive in March 2021. But we need to get the elephant out of the room, right?

a lot of people think that Wild rift it will be just another MOBA like so many others that exist on Android and iOS. But not quite.

This is certainly one of the biggest releases of 2021 on mobile.

Wild Rift comes to cement this maxim once and for all: all the major publishers of competitive PC games want to have a foot in mobile too.

Riot is taking this release very seriously, so much so that the company has irritatingly delayed the release of Wild Rift. All for a good cause, after all, nobody wants to have their release at a “Cyberpunk” level. Huh?

Wild Rift is not just a mobile port of League of Legends, Riot has rethought the entire game from scratch, and I'm not just talking about simplified mechanics for mobile, I'm talking about the graphics engine and character modeling.



Currently Wild Rift is prettier than LoL on PC. Incredible!

LoL Mobile will arrive here literally ready. The game will feature 50 starting champions. Riot plans to release a new champion every two weeks. Skins everywhere and much more.

The launch of Wild Rift in the Americas will have servers in the United States and Latin America. It's still a beta test, but this time it will be open to the public.

Make sure you pre-register on Google Play and activate the option to download as soon as it becomes available.

Who knows, maybe there's an exclusive server for Spain, right? It wouldn't be a bad idea.

2 – Project xCloud

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pGeeDNYF7GI

Our narrator João testing xCloud.

Latest news: Project xCloud: everything you need to know.

Oh, you thought we weren't going to talk about that, huh?

A novelty little commented on by those looking for new games for Android in 2021.

What about being able to play dozens of Xbox One games straight from your cell phone? Including new console games?

This witchcraft is called Project xCloud, a new service that Microsoft is bringing to Spain in 2021.

For those who don't know, in this type of service, you use a slice of a Microsoft supercomputer to run your game remotely, you just need to have an average smartphone and a good Internet connection.

Yes, I know that game streaming and cloudgaming is something that has been around for millennia, but it is the first time that a gaming giant has brought the service to Spain and with a 100% focus on Mobile.


The only captive games are those from Microsoft, but there are dozens of games available like Tekken 7, Devil May Cry 5, Resident Evil 7, Shadow of The Tomb Raider and many others that come and go from the service.


Project xCloud is currently in beta testing over here, and it's a completely free trial.

Luckily we were selected for the beta and…. FUCK THAT FUCK!

When it finishes, xCloud will be merged into Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.

By far, xCloud and other game streaming services are going to be the big news of 2021. It's very practical and very easy.

Ehh, I know paying R$44,90 a month might seem a little expensive, but remember that this already includes Game Pass games too. So it's like having an Xbox One in the palm of your hand.

And in case you're wondering, no, you don't need an Xbox to use Project xCloud, in the future you won't even need a physical controller, but if you want, you can even use that pirate controller from a street vendor like our editor did here.

I can't wait for Geforce Now to get here too.

3 – Diablo Immortal

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XX81F8NYls4

Pre-registration of Diablo Immortal on Android

Pre-registro de Diablo Immortal no iOS

Diablo Immortal is an MMORPG….

Wait there? An MMORPG?

Yes, guys, it has already been confirmed that the focus of Diablo Immortal it will even be the multiplayer experience. The game will have a dense and narrative-focused campaign, but it will also have a lot of content focused on online gameplay.


According to the producer, the challenges and dungeons will be scaled according to the size and level of the party. The game gets more difficult as you evolve and your team too.

The four classes available at the start will be: Arcanist, Barbarian, Monk and Demon Hunter. Each class has two primary attacks and some unique abilities, in addition to having an ultimate ability (it's an ulti). The player can equip one primary attack and four abilities at a time.


I'm honestly a little skeptical about this game. I know that NetEase is behind the development with close monitoring of Blizzard.

Please NetEase, don't ruin this game with in-app purchases.

Oh, and we were invited by Blizzard to participate in the closed beta test, but as we are always very unlucky, the beta test key bugged us and never worked.

Anyway, Diablo Immortal looks amazing, but it may disappoint anyone who is a longtime fan of the franchise.

 

4 – ODIN Valhalla Rising

https://youtu.be/rQW0TT0mUJ4

Latest news: ODIN Valhalla Rising: new trailer promises a lot! But will it be all that?

When the trailer of ODIN Valhalla Rising came out, everyone's jaw dropped to learn that it was a mobile project. The game created by Lion Heart Studios and which will be published by Kakaogames promises to be the game with the best graphics of 2021.

The trailer is impressive, but the first images in the game already kind of made us fall back into reality.

Look guys, I'm going to say it right here. Our aim is to work with the truth, this business that creates hype over the game is not our thing.

When we saw something that doesn't look that amazing, or that trailer that promises a lot and delivers little, we already feel like a pan.

There's no need to say that everything is amazing to gain views and likes. Not here!

And a good example here is this ODIN Valhalla Rising. Very beautiful trailer, many promises, but the first images with the automatic button and graphics below the trailers, already leave me disappointed.

Not to mention the game is being published by Kakao games. The same Kakao from there B, which was one of the most hyped games of 2016, which won an English dub and everything and in the end it wasn't even released in the west. Oops, yes it was, but as a half-assed release on Nintendo Switch.

 

5 – Castlevania: Moonlight Rhapsody / Moon Light Fantasy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8Vs6mLw4ZY

Latest News: Konami Announces Castlevania: Moonlight Rhapsody for Android and iOS

Castlevania: Moonlight Rhapsody is a new game from the famous vampire hunter franchise. This game is free to play and will be released for Android and iOS sometime in 2021.

However, for now, the game is only confirmed in China.

The game began its development under the name of Codename C, back in 2019.

Right away, we already found the dozens of similarities with the Castlevania franchise strange. It was too much like Castlevania not to be Castlevania...

And in the end, it was.

After the colossal failure of Castlevania: Grimoire of Souls, Konami decided to reveal that this game would be a new game in the franchise with versions for Android and iOS.

Moonlight Rhapsody promises to correct Grimoire of Souls' mistakes, while also focusing more on single player. I hope so.

6 – Metal Slug code J

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glzdRskcqdQ

Latest news: See the gameplay of the new Metal Slug CODE: J for Android and iOS

Nostalgia looks like it will take over 2021.

In June 2020, during its event called Spark More, Tencent presented one of its most interesting and nostalgic projects.

The company has teamed up with SNK and they will create a remake of Metal Slug.

The project dubbed Metal Slug Code J It's a game with a retro feel in the gameplay but completely remodeled visuals.

The art of the game is beautiful, a spectacular piece of junk. But it is worth noting the message below: this does not represent the final version of the game.

In addition to the traditional stages, it seems that the game will have a city for you to travel between stages and that will be used for you to buy items and equips.

Yes, it will be a free and online game.

Tencent already has a history of reviving old franchises. Remember that Contra Returns has the same proposal. Do'nt know? There's a download link in the description there.

7 – Nier Reincarnation

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zzzQSEKWrjw&t=640s

Latest news: NieR Re[in]carnation has new gameplay video revealed

The Nier and Drakengard franchise have gained modern cult classic status. The series that started out lukewarm on Xbox 360 and PS3 exploded in popularity with the release of Nier Automata.

Well, we were promised a mobile game from Nier. What's up? Where is he?

His name is Denying Reincarnation. An RPG with adventure elements being developed by Applibot at the request of Square Enix. This game is confirmed for a global release, but will be released in Japan first.

If it arrives globally in 2021, I don't know, but in Japan it is certain that it will arrive this year.

Just be careful not to confuse this game with NieR Automata X Punishing: Gray Raven. This is a collab by Nier Automata in the game Punishing: Gray Raven.

Download do APK de NieR Automata X Punishing: Gray Raven

Gray Raven is a game that resembles Honkai Impact with its short areas and frantic combat. The collab with Nier Automata was so good, that a lot of people will think that the gameplay of Reincarnation will be like this.

8 – Pokemon Unite

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oElrP4oAwjA

Latest news: Pokémon Unite: First MOBA in the franchise will have a version for Android and iOS

2020 was a really crazy year.

If someone told me that there was a Pokémon MOBA in development made for Tencent and Timi Studio I would say that this one smoked something.

But it's not that it's true.

Pokemon Unite is the bet of the famous franchise of Nintendo monsters for Android, iPhone (iOS) and Nintendo Switch, under the molds of the MOBA genre.

The game will have elements very similar to those of League of Legends (LoL) and Arena of Valor.

Announced in June 2020 in a special broadcast, the game is developed by TiMi Studio, one of the subsidiaries of the Chinese giant Tencent and responsible for titles such as, check it out: Arena of Valor, Call of Duty Mobile and Metal Slug Code: J.

And speaking of MOBA, or rather, another MOBA, I come here to advertise the newest one.. calm down guys, it's a prank...

But do you remember Marvel Super War? That MOBA with Marvel heroes and villains? Where is he? Was it shelved because of Wild Rift and Pokémon Unite?

9 – Gang Domination

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIiX8iNL1vA

Latest news: Gameloft may be doing a graphically stunning remake of Gang Domination

In April 2020, Gameloft released a teaser trailer for its latest and most ambitious project. An online game called Gang Domination.

While the trailer suggests a Battle Royale set in a futuristic city, it is worth remembering that the company has already used this name for a card RPG, released in partnership with GREE back in 2012.

The trailer is entirely CGI and there is no ingame scene. During the trailer, several modes are promised: Battle Royale, racing, exploration of a living city and so on. It even sounds like the promises of Cyberpunk.

It's wait and see.

Will we have the release of Gang Domination in 2021. And more importantly, will this game be able to bring Gameloft back to the top?

The company that was once a leader in mobile, today is a forgotten sidekick.

10 – Devil May Cry Mobile

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrS_e_tjr1w

Latest News: Has Devil May Cry Mobile been cancelled? When is the release date? Find it out!

It once had that feeling of a game that was released, but in reality it wasn't. And then you stay, huh? Is this game not released yet?

That's what happened to Devil May Cry Mobile ou Pinnacle of Combat: provisional name.

This Chinese game, developed by Yunchang Games and licensed by CAPCOM was announced back in 2017.

They said it would be released in 2018.. Nothing was left for 2019... Nothing, 2020 IS OUT, RIGHT? Anything!

This is a shame, because Devil May Cry Mobile is a beautiful game, it looks like a console game. Set between Devil May Cry 1 and 3, this game brings classic characters from the franchise and ties everything together like an Online Action RPG, but with a lot of action.

Now they say it will be released in open testing in Q2021, between April and June XNUMX.

But there's a little detail.

So far there is nothing confirming the launch in the west. We contacted a CAPCOM representative in Spain and were told that they don't know anything about a global release.

Hey CAPCOM!

Not to mention Mega Man X Dive, another game that CAPCOM is owing a global release. Anyway, better stop here, the video is getting boring, right?

11 – Bonus: Apex Legends Mobile ?

Latest News: Apex Legends Mobile: Release Date and Minimum Requirements

Ah to leave you with a taste of even more unnecessary hype. let's talk about Apex Legends Mobile.

This game that lives only in EA executive meetings. Will the game show the air of grace in 2021. Why is it a little late after all, right?

Able for the Battle Royale hype to go away and it doesn't arrive.

— Pocket City Game (@pocketcitygame) October 4, 2020

For those in the know, Pocket City 2018 is the preeminent city building game on mobile, striking a perfect balance between depth, accessibility and smartphone-friendly graphics. The sequel probably won't stray too far from this winning formula, and you can expect a similar experience but with nicer visuals and other improvements. There's no release date yet and the game is still in its early stages, but 2021 looks likely.

31 – LEGO Star Wars Battles

https://youtu.be/_Zz1XVXrkCk

LEGO Star Wars Battles is a mobile game licensed by WB Games and Lucasfilm that will have a “footprint” similar to Clash Royale. But since we are talking about Star Wars, we can expect remarkable characters with Darth Vader and many others. The game is still in testing, but you can download the APK here.

LEGO Star Wars Battles has been in testing for a long time and I wonder if they will actually release this project or shelve it.
