So, without further ado, here are the ten best gacha games for mobile in 2021, complete with download links.

Raid: Shadow Legends

A game packed full of monsters and heroes for you to collect. Seriously, there are hundreds of them. It’s got gorgeous graphics, plenty of action and some awesome modes thrown in for good measure as well. Definitely worth checking out if you’ve got a passion for the gacha mechanic.

Dragalia Lost

The first of two Nintendo-ish games on this list. This one sees you collecting and training a team of dragons. That in itself is pretty cool. There’s also some impressive swipe-based action to get involved with as well.

Genshin Impact

One of the most breathtakingly good looking games available on mobile. It mixes open world RPG elements with a gacha mechanic to make for some team-building goodness. It’s regularly updated, got loads of players, and we reckon you’re going to fall in love with it.

Marvel Strike Force

A gacha game stuffed with some of the mightiest heroes and villains from the Marvel universe? What’s not to like about that? There’s PvE, PvP and loads more going on here. And you can collect Hulk, and everyone loves Hulk. Hulk as in Incredible, not Hogan.

Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad

An action-RPG with an espionage bent. You’re collecting heroes and villains from all of the Tom Clancy games to try and take down an uber threat that wants to destroy the world. It’s pretty engaging, and has more guns than most of the other games on this list.

Dragon Quest Tact

A particular favorite of ours at Gamezebo. Collect monsters from the Dragon Quest universe and take them on a quest to whomp other monsters. There’s always something going on here, and it’s updated regularly with new monsters to collect and new challenges to try and finish.

Final Fantasy Brave Exvius

A gacha game where you’re gacha-ing – is that the right word? – characters from across the Final Fantasy mythos. There are a couple of FF gacha games available for mobile, but we reckon that this is definitely the best of them.

Another Eden

This one comes from the mind behind the excellent Chrono Trigger. It’s a deep and engaging anime experience that features everything you’d expect from a gacha game. It’s also pretty darn addictive, which is what we like.

Fire Emblem Heroes

The second of the two Nintendo entries on this list sees you collecting characters from the Fire Emblem series. It’s probably one of the best examples of gacha done right on mobile and if you haven’t played it yet we highly suggest that you rectify that as soon as you possibly can.

Pokemon Masters

Last but not least, a gotta-gacha-’em-all game. See what we did there? Pokemon Masters brings together characters and Pokemon from all across the Pokemon mythos into a casual but entertaining mobile RPG.
