Upcoming Android Games: August 2018 and Beyond

Hipster Attack

It’s hipsters versus upstanding, right thinking citizens in this Planets VS Zombies inspired tower-defense game. Players will need to defend their coffee shop from the hipster invasion by placing coffee makers to keep their team motivated, security guards to block their path, and HR workers to scare off hipsters with the thought of corporate employment. The invading forces will include vinyl record tossing music masters, typewriter carrying bloggers, and old-timey camera using hipsterazzos. Hipster Attack has a scheduled release date of August 16, 2018.

Destiny Knights

Netmarble has a hit on its hands with the recently launched Knights Chronicle, and the South Korean publisher will soon release another hero collection game. Formerly Destiny6, Destiny Knights is an action RPG that lets players collect and battle their heroes in teams of three. The game’s unique twist on the gacha game category is its approach to combat. While battles play out in real-time, players can will need to activate and aim their heroes’ skills in order to maximize their effectiveness. That includes carefully placing area of effect attacks as enemies move around, using special abilities to interrupt powerful boss attacks, and single target nukes to take down powerful but fragile damage dealers. Destiny Knights will be free and contain in app purchases, pre-registration is available.

Brave Frontier: The Last Summoner

While the original Brave Frontier is still going strong and having new crossover events, Gumi is releasing a spin-off that will be set a thousand years after the events of Brave Frontier. The game will be a standalone Japanese-style RPG with a new cast of heroes for players to collect, larger armies to battle, and a new story to watch unfold. Brave Frontier: The Last Summoner will be free to play and contain in app purchases. The Last Summoner has soft launched in select regions.

OldTV

OldTV is a casual game that combines elements from the Stroop effect and throws a bunch of quick instructions at players and expects them to react nearly instantaneously. All with an old CRT television look. It’s one of the more bizarre upcoming Android games, and Android users will get the chance to experience it some time after its iOS release (expected to be August 9th).

Beach Buggy Racing 2

The return of Beach Buggy Racing is scheduled to arrive on Android and iOS this summer, bringing gamers another chance to experience the series’ kart racing action.
