    "This is the first anime-inspired RPG that I have tried and I really liked it. It's not something that I haven't seen before in other RPG games but that does not detract from it being a good game. The story and overall aesthetic of the game are quite charming. "

    "This game leverages the gacha system into its gameplay quite heavily and that's not a bad thing. This gives players a chance to get and interact with their favorite character in the Fate series. This is one of the best gacha games and just a good game in general."

    "This is one of the best gacha games for mobile that you can play right now, whether it be for Android or iOS, the experience is great. If you're a fan of gacha games, you probably know about this already. If you're curious about these types of games, this is one of the best ones to try out first."

WHAT’S THE MEANING?

A gacha game is a video game that uses a monetization mechanism to get exclusive content. It uses an in-game currency where the player 'spins' the gacha and gets rewarded with a random item. The player also gets persuaded to use real money to trade it with the in-game currency for the chance of more 'spins.' The term ‘gacha’ comes from the Japanese word gachapon (?????). It is a variety of vending machine that dispenses capsule toys. The word is a combination of two onomatopoeic sounds: gacha and pon. The word ‘gacha’ is the sound made when the vending machine is hand-cranked. While ‘pon’ is the sound that the capsule toy makes when it lands in the collection tray.

DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know players are spending thousands of dollars in Gacha games? Unfortunately, Gacha games can be addictive like real gambling. Why? Because it can make players want to progress in a game by spending real money to cut the time of earning rewards. Of course, not every Gacha game is like this. Some are even generous or give out free units. But regardless of this, the core concept will still be to encourage players to spend real money. On the bright side, players who have self-control do not have to worry about overspending. Yet, the so-called "whales" are players who have no issue of spending thousands on Gacha items. Indeed, it is fine to play and enjoy these games. Many players argue that overspending while harmful supports funding their favorite game series. But, always remember you can spend money on these games but you don't need to become broke over them. If you want you can try these mobile games with character creation instead.

    "There is plenty to like in this game even if you're not that familiar with the final fantasy franchise. It tries to incorporate multiple game elements and for the most part, it succeeds in its efforts. It has the RPG element down, it utilizes a gacha system for its collectibles, and just has a great story and tons of content overall."

    "This is a pretty straight forward simple game if you're into anime. You can compete against friends and there are daily things to do to boost your standings and your gameplay but it's pretty basic.... If youre into anime this will probably hold your attention but you wont find it engaging enough to be your main game that you are dying to play...."

    "It's a really polished game as expected from any Netmarble game. Everything from the art style, the soundtrack, and voiceovers are all good. The story is nothing spectacular and it can get a little repetitive at times but it's still a nice game to play casually."

    "Great graphics, smooth gameplay, and battles that require a bit of thinking and strategy make this one of the best gacha games you can try right now. The whole energy system is still in place so it can cut your gameplay short but aside from that, this is definitely worth trying out."

This one is also a good choice for the more casual gamers as it does not take a lot of time and effort to acquire new heroes, with more being introduced every month. If you're a fan of these types of game and Marvel, you should check this one out."
