Mobius Final Fantasy Ends Service On June 30

Mobius Final Fantasy Ends Service On June 30

Mobius Final Fantasy, one of the prettiest and most unique mobile FF spin-offs, will soon be no more. Today Square Enix announced the game will be going down for good at the end of March in Japan, with the global version continuing until June 30.

An interesting game I never got the hang of but some of my coworkers to enjoy for a time, Mobius Final Fantasy is a free-to-play turn-based...

Adding Squirrel Girl To Marvel’s Contest Of Champions Doesn’t Seem Fair

Adding Squirrel Girl To Marvel’s Contest Of Champions Doesn’t Seem Fair

 Marvel’s Contest of Champions is a competitive mobile fighting game in which Marvel comics heroes and villains compete for dominance on a universal scale. With the extraordinary power to kick butts and eat nuts, Doreen Green is the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl. There is no reason to play Contest of Champions on iOS or Android anymore. She wins.

I and my former cohort Evan Narcisse have written...

The New King Of Fighters Mobile Game Kicks A Fair Amount Of Ass

The New King Of Fighters Mobile Game Kicks A Fair Amount Of Ass

Out now on iTunes and Google Play, The King of Fighters Allstar takes the expansive roster of fighters from SNK’s long-running fighting game series and turns them into collectible characters in a side-scrolling beat-em-up action RPG. It’s very flashy and obnoxiously free-to-play, but I’m actually having a great time. It’s a neat new way to interact with my favorite fighters.

Apple Arcade Is Mobile Gaming Without All The Bullshit

Apple Arcade Is Mobile Gaming Without All The Bullshit

Entering into the busiest video game season of the year, we didn’t exactly need Apple Arcade, nor did we really want it, given Apple’s mediocre stewardship of video games for the past decade. What a shock, then, that Apple Arcade is one of the best gaming launches we can remember, and that we can recommend it without making any apologies or exceptions for the stuff no one likes about mobile...

The New Game From Journey’s Creators Feels Like A Dream

The New Game From Journey’s Creators Feels Like A Dream

In the new game Sky: Children of the Light ethereal figures prance and soar through gorgeous landscapes and crumbling temples. These characters hold candles and spread light throughout the world. At least, I think that’s what’s going on in ThatGameCompany’s first new game in seven years. It’s abstract.

Out now on iOS and coming eventually to Android, Sky: Children of the Light feels like an...

Nintendo's Mobile Game Dragalia Lost Has Finally Lost Me

Nintendo's Mobile Game Dragalia Lost Has Finally Lost Me
Kotaku Game DiaryDaily thoughts from a Kotaku staffer about a game we're playing.  

From its launch in late September through mid-May, Nintendo’s mobile RPG Dragalia Lost was part of my daily routine. I only missed one daily login during the entire period, and that was because I was recovering from surgery. But, over the past couple of weeks, the game’s pull on me has faded, and my play...

Apple's 150 MB App Download Cap Raised To 200 MB, Still Dumb

Apple's 150 MB App Download Cap Raised To 200 MB, Still Dumb

Apple’s annoying 150 megabyte data cap for downloading apps and games over cellular connections is 50 MB less annoying this week but still doesn’t give phone owners the option to ignore it. So, yay, but also boo.

Finding out a cool new game has been released on the iTunes App Store, purchasing it, and then having the “App Over 150 MB” message pop-up, urging you to connect to a Wi-Fi network...

Netflix Adds Downloads For Your Offline Viewing Pleasure

Netflix Adds Downloads For Your Offline Viewing Pleasure

One of the most bandwidth-hungry apps on smartphones and tablets, Netflix has been the bane of data caps for years. Today that changes with the addition of downloads.

Find a show or movie, download it to your device and watch it on the subway, in an airplane, in one of the less considerate coffee shops. The screenshot above shows off the new section added to the Android version of the Netflix...

The Skylanders Return In A New Mobile Game

The Skylanders Return In A New Mobile Game

Available today worldwide on iOS and Android devices, Skylanders: Ring of Heroes takes the colorful characters from the toys-to-life series and turns them into pawns in a free-to-play, character-collecting role-playing game. That’s fine, I guess. Not like Activision was doing anything with them recently.

Aside from the animated Netflix series, we haven’t heard much from the Skylanders since...

Dragalia Lost Gets Its First (Very Short) Story Update

Having torn through Dragalia Lost’s first six story chapters within a couple weeks of launch, I’ve spent the past few months collecting characters and dragons and participating in regular special events while I waited for the narrative to expand. Well, it expanded. I burned through the new stuff in an hour, and now I wait for Chapter 8.

I’m still playing Nintendo and Cygame’s Dragalia Lost on...

It's Hearthstone, Only With Kung Fu Panda

It's <i>Hearthstone</i>, Only With <i>Kung Fu Panda</i>

Video game tie-ins for children’s films aren’t known for their originality, but this is just silly. Ludia’s new iPad game is Hearthstone, only instead of some kung fu pandas it has the Kung Fu Panda.

The mechanics in Kung Fu Panda: Battles of Destiny are basically the same. Each player draws cards and gets an increasing number of chi (mana) points to spend each round. The kung fu master the...
