Mob Psycho the Anime
For those of you who haven’t seen the show, Mob Psycho 100 is basically Japanese Frozen. Shigeo Kageyama, otherwise known as Mob, has incredible psychic powers. Mob has to conceal, not feel, his emotions for fear of losing control. Over the course of the series, he gradually starts to let it go as he gets involved with ne’er-do-wells with psychic powers as well. Thrust into ever-worsening situations, Mob occasionally shows off his true powers which are severely overpowered.
Mob Psycho the Game
Players relive the events of the anime while collecting over 80 characters to make their dream team. Imagine Marvel Strike Force, DC Legends, or Raid: Shadow Legends. But in anime form. The art style, while not console level, is beautiful in its own way. There are bright colors and smooth 3D models that I think make the in-game cutscenes and special move animations awesome. The expressions may be a bit flat, but I don’t notice it enough to be bothered. The biggest downside to Mob Psycho 100: Psychic Battles is the cost of getting a banner character. Event characters are only available behind several paywalls with no free-to-play option. Time to git gud, I guess.
Final Verdict and Future Expectations
The current player base is small, but reviews are pretty on the Google Play Store. Everybody has differing opinions, so check out Mob Psycho 100: Psychic Battles for yourself before casting judgment. Be warned, however, that some players have accused the devs of being frustratingly absent. It might be in your best interests to go in with an open mind and a bit of patience. Mob Psycho 100: Psychic Battles released publicly for Android and iOS on January 9th of this year.
