Keep up to date with all the most important stories in Mobile Gaming with our Weekly Mobile Gaming Roundup. As usual, it has been another exciting week in the mobile gaming world and you can check out all the top stories below!
Genshin Impact Makes $3.7 Billion from Mobile Gaming
Genshin Impact, which is celebrating its second anniversary this week, is currently the third-highest-grossing mobile game worldwide. It trails Tencent’s PUBG Mobile at #2, which has made $4.9 billion in the last two years, and Honor of Kings at #1, which has made $5.5 billion. Both games are produced by Tencent.
Genshin Impact is the second most lucrative mobile game outside of China, grossing $2.5 billion across the App Store and Google Play. Surpassed only by Roblox which also made $2.5 billion, but they managed to squeeze in a couple more million, earning the top spot.
Need For Speed Mobile Enters Beta in China
There have been rumors about a new open-world Need for Speed Mobile game from TiMi Studios for a very long time. And so, Need for Speed‘s Mobile private beta test was just unveiled by the Tencent subsidiary studio. The announcement was made on the Chinese social media platform WeChat, and the private beta test is exclusively available in China.
TiMi Studios is apparently employing Unreal Engine 4 to create Need for Speed Mobile. The game’s high-definition visuals allow players to revisit their fantasies and make them come to life. Along with thrilling elements like speeding, turning, and drifting.
This could be a great move for the franchise, as fans long for a great F2P NFS multiplayer experience ever since the times of Need for Speed World shut down in 2014.
Pokemon Unite Adds Fan Favourite Scizor And Scyther To The Roster
Players were promised a ton of goodies when TiMi Studio and The Pokémon Company unveiled the second part of Pokémon Unite’s first-anniversary celebration, which included three new characters, a new map, and a ton of bonus features.
The third and last Pokemon of this celebration, Scizor (who begins the match as Scyther before he evolves), is now available in-game. What is fun about this character is that you do not have to evolve! You can just play as Scyther if that rocks your boat more. The license costs 14,000 Aeos coins or 575 Aeos gems, which is quite steep, but not abnormal for brand new additions to the game.
