With the sheer number of mobile games out there, it can be difficult to sift through the generic games to find the ones actually worth playing. So let’s take a look at some of the best RPGs currently available for iOS devices.
First, iOS is a great source of classic games. If you’ve never had a chance to play the classic Final Fantasy games, for example, you can find a majority of them. The most recent addition was Final Fantasy IX. While sometimes overshadowed by the more popular entries in the series, Final Fantasy IX is a fantastic RPG you don’t want to miss.
The classic Dragon Quest games are also available. If you’re interested in the series and want to see where it all begin, these versions are the easiest way to find the old games. The iOS version of Dragon Quest IV is also arguably superior to the DS version upon which it was based.
Similarly, if you like western RPGs as well as JRPGs, there’s one game available on iOS you definitely shouldn’t miss: Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or just someone who loves RPGs like Mass Effect and Dragon Age, Knights of the Old Republic is a fantastic, must-play RPG.
We shouldn’t focus only on ports, though. There are several unique iOS RPGs also worth trying. For example, the Infinity Blade trilogy stands out as a worthwhile action RPG series. While the first can be considered repetitive, its sequels were highly praised. The Infinity Blade series, which is story-driven, also contains two tie-in novellas written by Brandon Sanderson.
Kingdom Hearts fans might also be interested in Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, which we discussed in the past. While it is a gacha-style RPG, it also has addicting gameplay and a story important to the overall Kingdom Hearts plot.
Finally, there are a couple of iOS games on the horizon RPG fans should keep an eye out for: the first-ever English translation of Romancing SaGa 2, which was recently announced, and the new Valkyrie Profile game, Valkyrie Anatomia: The Origin.
There are many excellent iOS RPGs, both old and new, and we can’t cover them all. So let us known in the comments what RPGs you consider to the best available for iOS devices.
