We’ve rounded up the greatest the platforms have to offer with our best iOS games and best Android games lists, and you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in our best mobile RPGs and best mobile MMORPGs lists.

Here are the biggest new mobile games coming in 2021:

Final Fantasy VII: The First Solider is a flashy battle royale game where you play as a soldier candidate kitted out with killer powers and an arsenal of lethal weapons. Prepare to see plenty of familiar locations and summons as you face off against other players in intense firefights. It’s currently expected to land later this year.

You can learn more about the Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier release date with help from our guide.

Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis

Unfortunately, Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is not expected in 2021, but we’re excited nonetheless, so had to include it on our list. This title is a made-for-mobile single-player RPG that encompasses the entire Final Fantasy VII timeline. It’s somewhat reminiscent of the excellent Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition.

If you can’t wait to learn more, make sure you check out our Final Fantasy 7: Ever Crisis release date guide.

Castlevania: Moonlight Rhapsody

Do we need to say anything more than ‘new Castlevania game’? Moonlight Rhapsody is a brand new mobile instalment in the dark Gothic action-adventure series. Though we don’t know a whole lot about it, from the gameplay video we’ve seen it seems to have decent production values, and looks fairly similar to Symphony of the Night in terms of gameplay.

Though Moonlight Rhapsody is being developed for Chinese markets initially, we’re hopeful the game will head westwards soon after. Either way, it’s one to keep an eye on in 2021.

Fighting a boss in Diablo Immortal

Diablo Immortal

Taking place in between Diablo II and III, Diablo Immortal is a brand new and mobile-exclusive entry in the series. It shares a visual style with Diablo III, along with many of the classes, so long-term players will feel right at home.

But it’s not simply a shrunken down version of III for mobile. No, this is a full on MMORPG that takes place in a persistent online world. You can bring your friends along for the ride, or make whole new ones with ease.

Check out everything we know so far, including the Diablo Immortal release date, in our guide.

Total War Battles: Warhammer

Though Total War Battles: Warhammer changes the aesthetic to some extent, the fact it’s being made in partnership with Creative Assembly and Games Workshop as the third instalment in the Total War Battles series shows the amount of trust being placed with NetEase.

Three armoured characters stand back to back, with their guns held out in front of them.

PUBG: New State

PUBG: New State is a futuristic entry to the popular battle royale series. It takes place in the year 2051, and includes fresh vehicles, weapons, and maps. You can pre-register for the game right now over on the Google Play store.

Hopefully, it’ll retain the same excellent combo of turn-based campaign and RTS battles that makes the Total War series so special. Either way, we’re expecting it in 2021.
