The finest mobile RPGs usually incorporate familiar elements that are also present in their PC and console counterparts, such as expansive open worlds, immersive and intricate storylines, richly developed characters, and intricate gameplay mechanics. Our selections include exceptional mobile exclusives and adaptations of classic RPGs, all of which are brimming with top-quality content.

So, without further ado, let's dive into our rundown of the finest mobile RPGs available on iOS and Android devices.

1. Genshin Impact

Genshin Impact bears a striking resemblance to Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It boasts a vast open world that players can explore by climbing and traversing the environment, and there's even a glider to cover greater distances. While the game features some minor gacha elements, they don't pose significant issues.

The game features an exciting and dynamic combat system that combines real-time action with strategic elements. Players can control a team of characters, each with their own elemental abilities, to create powerful elemental reactions. The game also offers a variety of weapons and equipment to customize each character's playstyle. The combat is fast-paced, challenging, and rewards players for mastering their characters' skills and timing their attacks. Overall, Genshin Impact's combat system is one of its strongest aspects and adds an engaging layer to the game's exploration and story.

2. Chrono Trigger

Chrono Trigger is a classic RPG created by a talented team of developers who were responsible for the success of three of the most well-known Japanese franchises: Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Dragon Ball. The game was initially released in 1995 for the Super Nintendo and has since been made available on various other platforms.

The game's plot revolves around a young man named Crono, whose unexpected encounter with a mysterious girl at a local fair leads him on a journey through time to save his world from annihilation. As he travels through different eras, he enlists the help of a diverse group of characters with unique abilities to assist him in his mission.

3. Monster Hunter Stories

Capcom seems to have taken inspiration from The Pokémon Company and infused some Pokémon elements into the Monster Hunter universe. In Monster Hunter Stories, instead of solely slaying monsters, players hunt for eggs, hatch them, and nurture them into party members who engage in turn-based battles alongside the player. While there's still plenty of monster butchering, the cute monsters and rock-paper-scissors combat system make Monster Hunter Stories one of the best Android RPGs available.

4. Final Fantasy 7

Final Fantasy 7 is widely known and loved, and has received various forms of media, from a spin-off game to a recent episodic remake. The game has also been made available on mobile devices, but it's important to note that this is the original 1997 version without any updates to the graphics or story seen in the Playstation 5 remake. It's a classic game that can be played on-the-go, but don't expect any major changes or improvements.

Square Enix has been diligently releasing its collection of RPGs on Android in recent years, with most of them being excellent titles. The collection includes popular titles such as Final Fantasy I-VII (and IX), Dragon Quest I-VI (and VIII), Secret of Mana, Adventures of Mana, Final Fantasy XV: Pocket Edition, Chrono Trigger, and more.

5. Titan Quest: Legendary Edition

Titan Quest: Legendary Edition is a remastered version of an older RPG that was released in 2006 and brought to mobile devices last year. This action RPG is similar to Baldur's Gate or Diablo II, and offers an open world where you fight enemies, defeat bosses, complete main story quests, and collect better equipment.

The game comes with all the DLCs, including Immortal Throne, Ragnarok, and Atlantis, which justifies its higher price tag. The previous version of the game was already on our list, and we hope that the developers will continue to update it, so it can remain on the list for a while longer.

6. Tower of Fantasy

Tower of Fantasy is a mobile RPG that employs gacha mechanics and is reminiscent of Genshin Impact in terms of its scope. Players can venture out into a vast world, collect various heroes through summons, and play through engaging stories. Though starting small, players quickly gain power as they gather new heroes and level them up. Like Genshin Impact, the game is enjoyable due to its exploration of an open world, numerous activities, satisfying combat, and mostly smooth performance on higher-end devices.

7. WitchSpring

WitchSpring is a mobile RPG series that is not well-known but is worth playing. There are four games in the series, and each one is a competent RPG with typical RPG mechanics. However, what makes the games stand out are the above-average storytelling, various activities to do, good graphics, and simple controls.

The first three games take place at the same time in the game's universe, with the first two telling the same story from different perspectives. So, you don't have to play them in order, although it's recommended to play the first game before the second. The third and fourth games can be played independently at any point.

8. Knights of the Old Republic

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (KOTOR) is a game that offers an adventure set in the Star Wars universe 4000 years prior to the events of the original Star Wars movie. The story is compelling and should please any Star Wars enthusiast who's passionate about the lore. Even though the graphics may appear outdated to some new players, this becomes unimportant as they become immersed in the game.

One of the game's significant features is the ability to fully customize your own character from the Star Wars universe. As you progress through the game, you'll explore iconic locations, wield new weapons, and meet many intriguing characters that add depth to the storyline.

9. Chaos Rings 2

It's unfortunate that the Chaos Rings series isn't talked about enough, as the games are truly exceptional. Although the third installment didn't quite measure up to its predecessors, the first three games were some of the best JRPGs of recent times. This is a significant statement that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Chaos Rings 2 is widely regarded as one of the greatest games in the series and is beloved by many. The plot is complex and thought-provoking, which provides an enjoyable experience as players attempt to unravel the story's mysteries. Fans of the series can only hope that the games receive the attention they deserve through ports or remasters to make them more accessible.

10. The Shadow Sun

If you're a fan of BioWare games, you'll find The Shadow Sun to be a familiar experience. Although it's not the most impressive or exciting game out there, it still manages to deliver an enjoyable experience despite its limitations. The game's simple combat and storyline are enough to keep mobile gamers engaged, and the effort the developers put into building its world is commendable and sometimes even astonishing.
