What can we expect next from the biggest mobile games?

What can we expect next from the biggest mobile games?

What can we expect next from the biggest mobile games? Over the past few years we’ve seen many incredible mobile games like Minecraft and Pokémon Go that have expanded what we can expect from our smartphone entertainment.

And whilst Tetris is still the best-selling mobile game of all-time, its profile has been eclipsed by more modern titles. So what can our favourite mobile games do to ensure that they maintain maximum exposure and become one of the all-time greats?

It’s a concept that Niantic seem to have understood as they’ve got big plans to make sure that Pokémon Go is a big part of our summer.

Niantic recently unveiled an ambitious community event that will turn the American city of Charlotte into a giant social experiment that inevitably features thousands of gamers running around the neighbourhoods looking for the PokéStops. 

Whilst it’s hard to imagine that anyone could ever tire of the open-world adventures of Minecraft, its parent company, Microsoft, have recently introduced a new Marketplace feature that will dramatically increase the range of customisation options for its players.

Not only will it allow gamers to install entire new worlds, adventures and skins, but it will boost the creative possibilities of the game that’s already become the standard bearer for open-world gaming.

Buying the ability to take part in a Minecraft spaceship duel is just one of the ways that money is starting to play a role in our mobile gameplay. And with the LadyLucks mobile casino site introducing some interesting welcome bonuses to promote their games, it shows how our mobile games have become a little more complex than Candy Crush.

Despite Supercell giving us some of the biggest gaming hits of recent times with Clash of Clans and Clash Royale, it looks like the Finnish games developers might not give us a new title in 2017. This could leave the door open for Nintendo to capture a bigger share of the mobile game market that they’ve already gained thanks to the strong performance of titles like Super Mario Run and Fire Emblem.

Whether their next mobile game will be the much-delayed Animal Crossing title or something else remains to be seen. But with some fascinating developments in the augmented reality and mobile casino realms, it looks like we’ll see plenty more action from our best-loved mobile gaming titles.
