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.

Next week, Puzzle & Dragons is getting a little angry. Because, you know, Angry Birds. It's a... a pun. I thought... never mind.

Anywhosits, starting next week on 10/20 and running through 11/2, Puzzle & Dragons will feature a brand new dungeon inspired by Angry Birds Epic. You'll be able to recruit the help of familiar Epic characters, as well as some classic birds for those who might have missed the last crossover event, and you'll of course be fighting some mean old piggies along the way.

You can download Puzzle & Dragons - and even Angry Birds Epic for that matter - off the App Store now for free.
