Wondering which games to pre-register for? Check out our list.
Mobile gaming appears to be in good health right now, with both iOS and Android playing host to an increasingly rich and varied ecosystem of experiences. With more and more being added each and every month.
While we'll continue to bring you news about what's hot right now, we've always got one eye on the future.

This means that you can register your interest ahead of time, which can often result in bonus items within the game.

Harry Potter: Magic Awakened
Harry Potter has been around for a while, but Magic Awakened is the newest title to join the collection. This beautiful strategy lets players explore Hogwarts and all of its mysteries, collect spell cards, and defeat the creatures lurking in the darkness. It looks like it's going to be one of the few HP games where players have complete freedom to cast magic however they feel like!
This highly anticipated action RPG on mobile lets players experience their favourite Disney characters in an entirely new way as they embark on an adventure across an all-new divergent Disney universe. Players have to assemble their team of Guardians to fight the growing threat within the Mirrorverse.
Apart from the Story Quest mode, players can explore different dungeons and clear limited-time event quests, whether they're fighting the good fight as the powerful Maleficent or defending the peace as the armoured (but huggable) Sulley.
Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus
Another brilliant game set in the Warhammer 40,000 Universe, Warhammer 40,000: Tacticus is a strategy game where players can pick their favourite characters from the massive pool available at their disposal. Collecting heroes and upgrading them is the core mechanics, and beating up enemies is just another plus.
There will be PvP and PvE campaigns alike, so any player can choose their desired approach and join a Guild tailored to their play style. There's also going to be plenty of Guild Raids as well, so the game definitely brings something to look forward to.
Combining elements of puzzle games and RPGs, the fantasy title lets players step into the shoes of Wisla on a quest to save your sister from a magical enchantment. The anime-themed game lets you unleash your match-3 prowess and card RPG skills, with more than a hundred heroes to choose from across five clans and classes.
You can also unlock clues to uncover your heroes' backstories, all made more immersive with fully voiced scenes crafted with a million words of narrative. The game also features different game modes such as The Forgotten Land, PvP Arenas and more.
Featuring what might just be the most massive MMORPG to date, Noah's Heart lets players explore a vast open-world environment brought to life via the Unreal 4 engine. Players can travel across the planet, take on quests, defeat monsters, meet new friends and encounter various challenges along the way.
The game also features a fully customisable character as developed by Archosaur Games. You can also collect various Phantoms via the gacha pool to aid you in your journey as you fight real-time battles. You can have a look at our first impressions preview to know more about the game!
Octopath Traveler: Champions of the Continent
In the world of Orsterra a new adventure unfolds, as we learn the story preceding the one we've known and loved in Octopath Traveler. Players will enjoy the similar lovely style of art and an (arguably) even better OST, all the while analysing and trying out various team compositions in order to find the best one possible.
Octopath Traveler: CotC will deliver a much-needed single-player JRPG experience to all players who've been longing for a good title belonging to the genre.
DC Heroes & Villains
Another match-3 and RPG combination, this officially licensed title lets players defeat bad guys using special skills from the characters they've collected in their roster. Popular DC characters come to life in an engaging narrative that will take players through iconic DC locales, as they play both sides of the story and progress through the game.
The title features more than 35 DC characters across 152 missions, and players will have to strategise different synergies to fill up energy bars and unleash devastating special attacks on their foes on the board.
Warcraft Arclight Rumble
Warcraft Arclight Rumble lets players engage in thrilling battles using Warcraft Minis and unleash their inner tacticians in strategic gameplay. These collectable Warcraft Minis can be pitted against each other in the single-player campaign or against other players in action-packed PvP.
Players can expect to collect fan-fave characters from the Warcraft universe such as Jaina Proudmoore, Grommash Hellscream and more across Azeroth. There are more than 60 Minis to collect with five playable families, namely, Alliance, Horde, Beast, Undead and Blackrock. You can pre-register now over on the Google Play Store to get first dibs on the game when it officially launches.
The sequel to the popular TerraGenesis: Space Settlers space sim, TerraGenesis: Landfall tasks you with creating the first settlements on Mars. You'll need to recruit residents, build facilities on your settlement, manage your valuable resources, train and level up settlers to boost their skills and more.
Of course, even as you monitor oxygen levels and make sure you have enough food to survive, you'll also have to grapple with the unpredictable nature of space, with random events that will challenge your ability to create a new utopia for humans on Mars.
Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice
Saint Seiya: Legend of Justice is another game inspired by the manga and anime with the same title, which follows a similar plot around the famous characters. Players will assemble their formation at will, choosing some of the strongest Knights they have available and using their signature skills to deliver devastating blows to the opponents.
With full 3D graphics and immersive combat animations, the game is as exciting as you might expect - the best part? It stays true to the Saint Seiya style we've seen in the previous games.
