The trend looks set to continue in 2015 with an exciting batch of games already announced. This year could even do one better than the last too, as a fair few of these titles are brand new IPs altogether, which is exciting when you consider that last year's biggest games tended to be ports or mobile versions of already established IPs.
Here then are seven of the best of these brand new IPs that are headed to iOS and Android later in 2015...
1. Project Phoenix - Eagle-eyed AppSpy viewers will know exactly why I put this one on the list. It's a JRPG with squad-based RTS-style battling made by a group of industry veterans. The iOS and Android versions will differ slightly from the PC version but it's a safe bet that this will be as awesome as it sounds.
2. Tempo - Splash Damage of Brink and Enemy Territory: Quake Wars fame are bringing their shooter-expertise to mobile this year with Tempo. The brief trailer doesn't give us a lot to go on but it looks set to be a Gears of War-style cover shooter with quick-time events.
3. Jenny LeClue - A brand new adventure game with a unique visual style that's headed to PC first with a mobile version planned soon after. It will be released episodically with three episodes currently planned.
4. Submerged - Epoch developers Uppercut Games have had a slight change of tack from robots annihilating everything in their path. Submerged is an adventure-exploration game set in an ancient city half submerged in water. Little is known other than that, unfortunately, but see what you can gleam from the trailer below.
5. Forgotten Memories - A survival horror game inspired by classics such as Silent Hill and Resident Evil, Forgotten Memories is set in an abandoned asylum and features Rose Hawkins, a detective, who must discover why she's randomly awoken in such a bizarre and frightening place. Count me in.
6. Moonrise - Pokemon will most likely never come to iOS or Android, so we'll just have to make do with Moonrise instead. It doesn't look like it will disappoint, either. You play as a Solari trainer who must pit his gathered Solari (read: pokemon) in battle against other Solari trainers.
7. Wizards of the Prestige - Ever wanted to run your own Hogwarts? Well, Wizards of the Prestige is the next best thing. You run your own wizard academy and can send your students on missions to train them up, where they fight vicious wolves and other animals with only a thin piece of wood. Sounds safe to me.
