Being a mobile gamer is tough. There are new games coming out constantly, new collabs, and more. That’s why we try to collect the most important mobile game news in one place.

While it would be impossible to learn about everything happening in a single week, we live and breathe mobile games. Which means we see A LOT of things.

That’s why, each week, we’re going to curate some of the biggest mobile game news, events, updates, and collaborations for global game titles.

What’s happening in mobile games this week

As the holidays gear up, expect lots of in-game events from your favorite mobile games.

New game releases are slowing down as the year ends, but there is still plenty of things to keep an eye on.

A new Genshin Impact event just released, and players that complete it will earn a crown, other items, and a limited-edition sword.

Called the Toukabou Shigure, the 4-star sword will give players the following bonus:

After an attack hits opponents, it will inflict an instance of Cursed Parasol upon one of them for 10s. This effect can be triggered once every 15s. If this opponent is taken out during Cursed Parasol’s duration, Cursed Parasol’s CD will be refreshed immediately. The character wielding this weapon will deal 16% more DMG to the opponent affected by Cursed Parasol.

It’s definitely an interesting weapon, so make sure to participate in the event to snag it before it is gone forever (or until next year).

Final Fantasy 7 mobile beta has been delayed
