    "This game is one of my go-to Android games. I was so skeptical at first because of the reviews but I finally caved one day when I saw my friend playing it. I actually played the first game and didn't think much of it, but this 2nd game is just on a different level entirely. It's amazing how much improved from the gameplay to the character customization. 4 stars for me!"

    "The amount of work that went into the character creation in this game is breathtaking. I love it and it totally helped me out in my gaming addiction because let's be honest, it's pretty rare to find a decent RPG game that lets you customize your main character"


Before mobile character creation games were even popular in the gaming industry, people already reinvented themselves through cosplaying. The term “cosplay” came from a Japanese recreation of the English words costume and play. The term was coined by Nobuyuki Takahashi of Studio Hard. He had invented such term after attending the 1984 World Science Fiction Convention in Los Angeles after he saw costumed fans. Shortly after that, he wrote an article about his experience for the Japanese magazine My Anime. That event is pointed to be the start of ‘cosplaying’ as most of us know.

Cosplaying has been worldly-renowned ever since. The most popular form of presenting a cosplay publicly is by wearing it to a fan convention. And take note, this is a serious business and some people travel miles and miles, and even take the time to make costumes. Some even buy them from the best cosplay websites for an expensive price! Cosplay fans have attended the San Diego Comic-Con and New York Comic Con in the United States, and the anime-specific Anime North in Toronto. Those events are considered to be the most attended cosplays in North America alone. Yet, the single largest cosplaying event is the semiannual Comic Market (Comiket) held in Japan during summer and winter. Such event attracts thousands of anime and manga fans who participate in cosplaying. Luckily for non-cosplayers, there are different apps with character creation that can be tried to experience reinventing one’s self. These games with character creation are available in different gaming platforms for your gaming pleasure.

    "IDK where I went wrong with this game, it's full of weird-speaking Asians who always speak their own language despite everyone around them speaking English! Other than that though, the game is perfect and it fits well with the setting along with the rather simple chara creation feature and vanity armor"

    "If you're a Star Wars fan, then, this is a no-brainer. You're probably playing this game already. For those new to the franchise of curious about it, know that this is a solid game in general. The story might be a bit confusing to follow but the gameplay, loot, and customization options are all good. Give it a try."

    "Same old Sims. Nothing so unique. I thought that they have something to offer in their mobile game especially to the old Sims players like me who are expecting a little bit more from EA. Still a pretty good game. Must try for rooks who don't have any experience playing the Sims."
