Nintendo’s newest mobile game, Fire Emblem Heroes, is a gacha game set in the iconic Fire Emblem universe. If you’re not familiar with gacha games, it’s a game genre, or rather a monetization mechanic, that is hugely popular in Japan, and is starting to drift into western mobile games, too.

Derived from the gashapon prize machines in Japan, gacha games ask players to complete missions or pay real-life cash money to buy items that grant chances to randomly win powerful characters or items. It’s a bit like low-key gambling, but with an RPG attached.

While there’s plenty to keep you occupied in Fire Emblem Heroes, perhaps you’re curious about other games. There are plenty of games of a similar nature that promise robust gameplay and hours of entertainment. Here are three of our favorites.

Square Enix has been mixing up its approach to music lately, featuring the likes of Eminem and Royce Da 5'9" in a Final Fantasy XV launch trailer and incorporating a Florence and the Machine rendition of "Stand by Me" on the official soundtrack. Now they'll be including a Final Fantasy-fied version of Ariana Grande's hit "Touch it" in Final Fantasy: Brave Exvius, and the pop star herself will appear in the game as a brand new character, Dangerous Ariana.
