2018 has been a pretty stellar year for mobile games - just take a glance at our Advent Calendar and you'll see a raft of 24 fantastic titles from the year that all deserve a go.

From the big-budget titles like Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, and Asphalt 9: Legends, all the way to tiny indie efforts such as Florence, Alto's Odyssey, and Homo Machine, there's been something for everyone. And quite a lot of it has been bloody good to boot.

But we're headed into 2019 now, so let's stop thinking about the games we have played, and instead start looking ahead to the games we want to play on our tiny handheld devices.

We're going to nick a few of these from our Soft Launch list because, well, we can. If you want to keep an eye on the games of the future well before they get into your hands, do be sure to check out that list and check in each week for new titles as they're added.

With that out of the way, let's stop messing around. Here's five games we can't wait to play some time in the next year.
