Arena of Valor (Strike of Kings) is the mobile MOBA from Riot and League of Legends owner Tencent. The game has already been released in Europe, but not yet in the Americas. Unfortunately, due to the rush of the year, the release was delayed for 2018. But the game will arrive in Spanish and with a monstrous support. Everything for Arena of Valor to be a success here too.
– Blade & Soul Revolutionhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LD9uA6bVevg
Netmarble will release a sequel to Blade & Soul, dubbed Revolution. It is worth remembering that this game is not Blade & Soul 2 which is also in development. The trailer only shows a lot of action in the PvP arena, and the graphics that make the use of Unreal Engine 4 very clear.
NCSoft has returned to developing LineAge. After the launch of other games in the franchise by other producers, LineAge 2 M arrives promising to be a classic MMORPG on mobile. Will this game be released in the west as well?
– TERA Mhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVbMi8AC0fg
Netmarble is already the favorite developer for bringing ports of classic PC MMORPGs to mobile. After a version of LineAge, the producer will also bring TERA to cell phones. TERA M arrives in soft launch in South Korea in 2017, but in the rest of the world, the game arrives only in 2018.
While Heroki doesn't come to Android, Monomals will be Picomy's next release for the iPhone and iPad. Not much has been told how the game will be. The way is to wait.
– Super Meat Boy Foreverhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DLPiGJDSQs&t=6s
To break this sea of RPGs a little, we have Super Meat Boy Forever. The game being developed for mobile phones is the same as for consoles. Super Meat Boy Forever will be a challenging platform game with Rayman Jungle Run style gameplay. The character runs automatically, but that doesn't mean it will be a freemium game. The producer has already made it clear that it will be a paid game.
– Aion Tempesthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rDww2tLRaY
NCSoft has returned to active development of its games and is preparing a mobile version of its MMORPG Aion. Aion Tempest takes place 900 years before the battles between the races of Angels and Demons. According to the producer, the gameplay will be on vast fields with epic battles between hundreds of characters.
– Mabinogi Fantasy Lifehttps://youtu.be/cBv1rzJsElE
Mabinogi Fantasy Life will be a survival MMORPG where the player will live in a community and have to help it. The game has a cute farm feel, but you'll have to face enemies too.
– Inazuma Eleven Areshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkjfleufbAo
Level-5 is preparing a version of Inazuma Eleven Ares also for Mobile. According to the producer itself, the game will have the same gameplay on both consoles and mobile.
– Black Desert Mobilehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2q1bU2ohDc
The mobile version of Black Desert is already in development by Pearl Abyss. The game will have a different gameplay, but will bring the same graphic refinement of the PC version (if you have a top cell phone, of course). Undoubtedly one of the most anticipated new games for Android and iOS of 2018.
And that was our first list of new games released for Android and iOS in 2018. It's worth remembering that the number #1 there is no coincidence. We will talk about many more games soon. For those who found the predominance of Chinese games strange, it was on purpose. I thought it best to put all the main ones in a single “trailer compilation” and then move on to western games. And get ready, there's a lot of good game coming in 2018.
