Honkai Impact 3rd guide - What you need to know to get a head start in this anime brawler

Posted by Campbell Bird on March 30th, 2018

Want a new beat em’ up on mobile? Look no further than Honkai Impact 3rd. This gorgeous anime brawler involves building teams of powerful Valkyries to take down some vicious, futuristic foes. If this sounds like you’re cup of tea, check out this guide to help get you started out on the right foot.

Know your enemy

Honkai Impact 3rd is kind of like Fire Emblem games in that there’s three types of heroes and enemies, with each type being strong or weak against another. In the case of Honkai, Mecha types are strong against Creature types, Creature types are strong against Psychic types, and Psychic types are strong against Mecha types.

In the heat of a battle, it might be hard to recognize enemies by type at first, but if you pay close attention, each enemy has a distinct color scheme that tells you their type. Use that to your advantage to make sure you’re using the right Valkyries against the right foes.

How to get stronger characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing

Posted by Nick Tylwalk on September 1st, 2016

Naruto is a fine guy to have on your side in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing. It's his game and his franchise after all.

Still, the three- or four-star Naruto you have leading your team early on isn't necessarily going to cut it. Or at least, he'll need to rank up and be stronger to conquer the enemies you'll face later on.

So that leaves you with a couple of choices. Either make Naruto and the friends (and foes, in some cases) you find more powerful, or simply find some characters that are tougher.

Better yet, do both. We can help you, as we dive into how to get stronger characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Blazing.

What mobile games do anime fans have to look forward to next year?

Posted by Brittany Vincent on January 7th, 2016

There have been loads of games released over the past year inspired by classic or newly-released anime series.

Properties like Yu-Gi-Oh! and Bleach also have new tie-in titles due this year, so it's easy to see why gamers who love Japanese animation are so excited about phones, tablets, and other mobile devices.

This year we'll hopefully see anime-inspired games released globally rather than just in Japan. There's a huge global audience for Anime-related games, and it's getting bigger every day. Sadly though the spread of these games outside of the East doesn't look like it's going to gain pace.

Square Enix is releasing the company's classic role-playing game Romancing SaGa 2 for smartphones as well as PS Vita, but it hasn't revealed whether it'll be available for global audiences just yet.

Xiao Jian, CEO of CMGE. said, "We are delighted to cooperate with GREE to co-develop and publish the official mobile game on Naruto in China. GREE, together with Shueisha Inc, TV Tokyo Corporation and Studio Pierrot, as the production committee (IP owner), recognize and trust the R&D and publishing capability of CMGE.
