Crunchyroll: Anime streaming platform Crunchyroll is taking a cue Netflix‘s playbook, adding five Android mobile games for two of its paid subscription tiers at no extra charge, Crunchyroll announced Tuesday.
Crunchyroll’s Game Vault offers five titles for its gaming debut, covering action, RPG, puzzle, and visual novel genres. Crunchyroll plans to offer iOS support for its Game Vault soon, according to the announcement.
Here’s a look at the Crunchyroll Mega Fan and Ultimate Fan games subscribers can now play.
Captain Velvet Meteor: The Jump + Dimensions
Crunchyroll now offers the mobile version of Captain Velvet Meteor, a tactical action game that follows the adventures of a 10-year-old boy, Damien, who moves to Japan. Damien becomes the eponymous hero of the game, who must solve challenges, defeat enemies, and complete missions while fighting aliens. Captain Velvet Meteor has an early Steam release date for sometime in 2024. Until then, it’s in the Game Vault for free.
River City Girls
River City Girls is an action fighting game with a pixelated Japanese aesthetic that was first released on Steam for PC players in 2019 at “Very positive” reviews. While the game is full of physical violence, River City Girls offers a bloodless fighting game that focuses more on bringing comic-style animations to school fighting. Crunchyroll’s Mega Fans and Ultimate Fans tier subscribers can get River City Girls on mobile.
Wolfstride is a single-player RPG in black and white with a lot of quirky characters and dialogues suitable for an adult audience, thanks to a narrative full of curses and old criminals that is associated with a mech fight. While the game was first released on Steam in 2021, its mobile version is now part of Crunchyroll’s Game Vault.
Behind the scenes: the most beautiful scenery
Behind the Frame is an indie visual novel game where players can follow the main story of an artist. Seeing the world through their point of view, players can sketch and paint in a world inspired by Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli, according to a statement from Crunchyroll.
As its name suggests, Inbento is a food-focused puzzle game. In it, players can complete more than 120 pattern-matching puzzles. Each puzzle is a lunch box waiting to be completed. Oh, and there are cats. This game also received “Very Positive” user reviews on Steam, and now the mobile version is available to Crunchyroll subscribers on both of those levels.
