The ever-growing popularity of mobile games have blessed us with scores of high-quality picks to sink our time (and money) in. Check out our ten picks for the most anticipated mobile game releases for the upcoming months.

Upcoming Mobile Games To Look Forward To

1. Wuthering Waves

From the developers of Punishing Gray Raven comes another highly-anticipated action RPG, Wuthering Waves. Unlike their other title, Wuthering Waves will put players into an open world for them to freely explore and, if the PGR experience still rings true, die repeatedly. The game is slated to release on May 22, 2024.

2. Girls' Frontline II: Exilium

If there were ever an award for a game that generates the most hype with just a few teasers and a trailer, Girls' Frontline II: Exilium would be among the top nominees. It will feature XCOM-like gameplay, decorated by visual designs inspired by the anime action RPG Code Vein. No news regarding a Global Release has been revealed yet, but considering the franchise's strong following outside of China, it will only be a matter of time.

3. Arknights Endfield

Arknights Endfield is another highly-anticipated title. Being the successor of the ever-popular Arknights, a lot of people are expecting great things from Hypergryph's next installment of the series. It is an open-world action RPG with base-building elements that will be held in an unfamiliar planet; a formula that’s entirely different from its tower defense predecessor. It does not have a release date yet, but tests for the Global servers have already commenced since January of 2024.

4. Duet Night Abyss

Duet Night Abyss is a fast-paced mix of action RPG and third-person shooter gameplay being developed by Hero Games. They are popularly known for working with Kuro Games to release the action mobile game Punishing Gray Raven. Like many of the games in this list, Duet Night Abyss does not have a release date planned as of this article’s publishing. But fret not, for the time will come as the game has commenced public testing this 2024.

5. Zenless Zone Zero

Yes, that's right. HoYoverse will be following up their titanic 2023 success with yet another highly-anticipated release in Zenless Zone Zero. Although a release date has not yet been officially announced, the Apple Store has an expected release date of July 4, 2024. But how will it fare against Honkai: Star Rail or Genshin Impact? It doesn't matter, really, because everybody has already fallen in love with it before it has even been released.

6. Project Mugen

One of the year's biggest gacha game reveal surprises was when Project Mugen's trailer came out. Everybody was stunned by the amount of freedom and realism the game shows despite being set in a congested urban environment, as well as its beautiful character models and high-quality animations. And although it's also another one of those games with no release date set yet, we are pretty sure that it will be released on the PC, PS5, PS4, and mobile.

7. Aster Tatariqus

It looks like a competitor for Fire Emblem Heroes will be arriving in Aster Tatariqus. It will feature the same top-down grid-based combat system as FEH, albeit with much more robust and complete combat animations. When will it be released? We have no idea. It has already launched on August 28, 2023 launch in Japan and was supposed to release on December of that year as well, but its English website still hasn't been updated with any news regarding that matter after its delay announcement.

8. Project Star

From the creators of Counter:Side comes Project Star. Unfortunately, that's pretty much it. There's little information to go around regarding the game other than it seems to be a turn-based action game similar to Honkai: Star Rail. It may also be an SRPG, considering the developer's previous title. Regardless, Counter:Side is an amazing game, and so here’s hoping the creators can continue to bring that magic over to their new title. It's definitely worth keeping an eye out for any developments on Project Star, for sure.

9. Calabiyau (Strinova)

Have you ever played Valorant and thought to yourself: "Man, if only this game was more anime. Oh, how I wish I could turn myself into a 2D model, too!" If so, then you're weird. But fret not, as Tencent has got your back with Calabiyau, a cross-platform mobile shooter where you’ll be able to play on either PC or mobile. Here, you'll get to enjoy the same joys as playing games like Valorant or CSGO, while also getting the opportunity to become a literal 2D waifu yourself. Unfortunately, it's only available in China right now, but the game is definitely coming to the Global Market. It even has a Steam Store page under the name Strinova, too!

10. Project Nornium

Finally, something that's pretty fresh (in a way) for the genre. Project Nornium is a mobile RPG with space shooter combat/fighter reminiscent of games such as Touhou Sky Arena. It's a project by developer GG Games after an earlier cancellation of their other project, Aozora no Xipuria. And, honestly, Project Nornium just looks like a prettier — and more eyebrow-raising — version of the former. Regardless, since a lot of people looked forward to Aozora no Xipuria, Project Normium should be worth a follow too, especially with regards to a release date.

Honorable Mentions

Gran Saga

After years of waiting, Gran Saga is finally coming to the Global market. While it's been almost three years since its release in Korea and Japan, the Global release is still a cause for celebration for those who have been waiting for the game since its announcement.

Goddess Order

Goddess Order is a 2D sidescrolling action game that appears like a direct mechanical upgrade to the developers' previous title, Crusaders Quest. However, that works in its favor as Crusaders Quest was a great mobile game with a surprisingly deep and endearing charm.

No release date has been announced, especially after its delay from a 2023 release. However, updates should come in gradually, as the game's YouTube account has recently started uploading new content.

Sword of Convallaria

Seeking the glorious style of Japanese pixel art RPGs, Sword of Convallaria features a grid-based combat environment with strategic options for players to use and interact with. From its gameplay and story teasers, it's easy to see that it's a game worth getting hyped for.

Sword of Convallaria will be released on PC and mobile. No specific release date has been announced, but it will launch within 2024.

Chaos Zero Nightmare

From the developers of Epic Seven, Chaos Zero Nightmare is an RPG set in post-apocalyptic Earth ravaged by what is known as the Chaos Incident. Aside from the backstory and setting, not much is known about the game, at least publicly. Even its platforms are a complete mystery. However, for the time being, we're keeping it here as something to look forward to on your phones and possibly on your PC.
