Crunchyroll tries to ensnare more gamers with a massive expansion to the Game Vault

Back in November 2023, Crunchyroll launched their Game Vault, a host of video games you can play on your mobile, provided you have a Mega or Ultimate Fan subscription. It's a perfect package for your stereotypical gamer, anime and video games in one place, and soon the vault will be bursting at the seams with 15 more titles.

Just as a general announcement, this is very exciting. I personally love both of these things, because I am apparently a frustratingly basic human, but the best thing about this is the titles in the Vault are genuinely very good. Already in there, you can play well-received games like inBento, Yuppie Psycho, and the original Hime’s Quest.

Enough of the old, now on to the new. The first three titles from this fresh wave have already crashed ashore on the banks of the Vault. You can try out the mystery-thriller puzzler Evan’s Remains or the turn-based RPG Battle Chasers: Nightwar. If you are a beat-em-up fan, the Kaiju-inspired Dawn of the Monsters is also available, with the Ultraman DLC coming soon.

Those maths whizzes out there already know that there are 12 more to come and to start with the bad news, they will all be coming in that mystical timeline of “soon”. If you are a visual novel fan then you are going to be well fed here. Thanks to a partnership with MAGES, Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, Steins;Gate, Corpse Party and the wordy The Quintessential Quintuplets - Memories of a Quintessential Summer will all be ready to read on mobile shortly.

Rounding off the pack, we have quite the big name in Crypt of the NecroDancer, which is definitely a catch. There will also be 9 Years of Shadows, Lunar Lux, Magical Drop VI, another wordy one in MMC KENKEN - The World's Most Exciting Math and Logic Puzzle, PictoQuest, RWBY: Arrowfell, and the rather excitingly titled Spidersaurs.

In order to get your hands on all these titles, eventually when they launch, then download Crunchyroll from the App Store or Google Play, and sign up for the Mega or Ultimate Fan tiers, the cheaper option being $9.99 a month.
