Bandai Namco has released a new PV revealing a new mobile game. The title of the game is “Kamen Rider City Wars” aka “Masked Rider City Wars”. The pre-registration of the game has gone live but they haven’t announced any release date yet. Aside from the announcement, there are no specific information yet about the game.
I know this is late but Tales of the Rays was recently launch and now available in English Version. It is an action RPG where you move your character on the left side of the screen while tapping or flicking on the right side of the screen to attack or use artes respectively. To be honest, this is one of the game that I look forward to having an English Version but was disappointed with the high gacha pricing. In Japanese Version, 11 Pulls/Summons cost only 200 Gems while in the new English Version, it cost 2000 Gems. That is 10 times the JP Version. I give it a chance and still tried to play for a bit but the rate of Gem Acquisition is the same with the JP Version, because of this I quickly stop playing the English Version and stayed with JP Version instead.
If you are interested on playing the English Version, just search “Tales of the Rays” in your Playstore/Appstore.

Usually i’m not into school life type of anime where the protagonist meets his lover by bumping into her at the corner of the hall, but this anime is very different from the usual. The story revolves around Haruyuki “Haru” Arita is a short, overweight boy who is frequently bullied by delinquents at the Umesato Junior High School. Using his Neuro Linker to escape the torment of real life, he logs onto the school’s Local Network cyberspace where he always plays virtual squash alone, and his innate video game skills bring him to the attention of Kuroyukihime that literally mean “Black Snow Princess”, the school’s popular, highly intellectual and attractive female Student Council Vice-President. Kuroyukihime introduces Haruyuki to Brain Burst, a secret program that is able to accelerate the human cognitive process to the point at which time appears to stop. Haruyuki soon learns that Brain Burst is more than just a program, but an Augmented Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Fighting Game where people fight each other in fierce duels in order to obtain Burst Points which can be spent for acceleration abilities in the real world. Kuroyukihime is one of the six kings of pure color where he beheaded the Red king and broke the truce between the kings, With every challenge they face in the Accelerated World, Haru and Kuroyukihime, under their aliases “Silver Crow” and “Black Lotus”, gather trusted allies, confront treacherous enemies and their bond grows stronger while working to attain their ultimate objective: to reach the highest in-game level and meet the game’s creator, who will reveal why the game was created and the true purpose of it.
Accel World Season 2 News
Reki and the producer said that they would love to see Accel World season 2 however they have contacted 2 different studios which are already busy. Most likely we will have a season 2 once these studios are finished with their current projects! Might take some time though.
Lineage II: Revolution is a mobile MMORPG developed by Netmarble Korea. It is running on the new Unreal Engine 4 so expect the game to have console-like quality even though it is for mobile. The game will have four playable races (Human, Dwarf, Elf and Dark Elf) and three playable classes (Warrior, Mage, and Rogue). What Lineage II: Revolution truly shine is their massive PVP combat where in up to 1600 players are in the field.
You can pre-register on their website to get Free 200 Red Diamonds. All players will also be rewarded 100 Red Diamonds for every 100,000 players pre-registered and 50,000 Adena for every 500,000 players pre-registered. Currently, at the time I am writing this blog, the Price Pool is a hefty 1,100 Red Diamonds and 100,000 Adena.
KooApps is looking for Android users from Canada, Philippines and Taiwan to Beta Test their new game titled “Pets Race”.
Pets Race is a fun online PvP racing game where you battle for first place and special loot! Run against your friends and watch your adorable pets win in the Pets Race arena!
I test out the game and to be honest it is surprisingly fun. The gameplay is a side view powerup racing, where you get power ups that you can use against other players while trying to be the first player to reach the finish line. I don’t find this gameplay as unique as I have already played similar games before but the interface and art looks user friendly. I’d say this is a good CASUAL Game with an emphasis on casual. Art is cartoonish and the animation is fine, there are some rough animation here and there but the game is still on Beta so I expect it will greatly improve before its official release. Background art follows multiple parallax layers which provide good ambiance for your pet while running. Beta Testers also receive 100 Gems for FREE which actually don’t have much value (Items on shop cost more than 100 Gems). If you are interested on Beta Testing their game, you can try your luck by liking their Facebook Page and posting a comment on this picture.
This news is a little bit late but in case you guys didn’t know yet, Fate/Grand Order was announced to have an english version release in Summer 2017. Fate/Grand Order is a mobile RPG based on the Fate/Stay Night Visual Novel and franchise by Type-Moon. The game is centered around turn-based combat where the player, who takes on the role of a “Master”, summons and commands powerful familliars known as “Servants” in battle against their enemies. The story narrative is presented in a visual novel format, and each Servant has their own personal scenario which the player explores.
This mobile game was first released on July 2015. The game is very successful in Japan. Aniplex announced that they will have an english release on the previous Sakura-Con. Aniplex Japan and Aniplex America will work hand-in-hand for this release. Unfortunately, Aniplex don’t have any plans yet on releasing this game in Europe.
I played the Japanese version before but got bored easily but that’s not because the game is boring but because it is played in a visual novel style. You know, what’s the point of playing a VN style game if you don’t understand anything. The battle system is fun and the animation is fluid. I will definitely play the english version once its released. Too bad I didn’t do any screenshots when I played the game so here are some random In-Game Screenshot I gather from the net to give you an idea on what it looks like.
I haven’t post anything lately because I’m busy IRL. There are a couple of good Japanese Game released since my last post. The two that caught my attention are both developed by one company (Wright Flyer Studios, Inc.)
The title of the first game is “Buki yo Saraba”. It is an ARPG for mobile where you gain characters through Gacha. The graphics is not that good (IMO) but it is very detailed to say the least. The battle system is simple with only normal attack, heavy attack and Special Attack. It is however a fun game because you fight hundreds of enemies in a single screen. You can think of this game as a miniaturize version of Dynasty Warrior.
The title of the second game is “Another Eden”. It is a single player online RPG. It’s like a mobile version of a full console RPG Game where it is heavily story driven and you explore the world for loots and enemies. The graphics, music and world design is amazing. The only problem I see on this game is the language, since it is only in Japanese and it is heavily story driven. It’s kind of hard to know what you need to do or where you have to go next. Of course, you can just run around blindly until you reach where you need to be but I don’t see the point of playing a heavily story driven game only to skip everything because you don’t understand it. The game also has gacha for characters but you also gain characters as you continue on the story line.
