“Yu Yu Hakusho Mobile is an RPG where you get to enjoy all the original charm of the story created by the legendary Yoshihiro Togashi (Hunter x Hunter). A video game with turn-based confrontations where you take on the life of Yusuke Urameshi, Kazuma Kuwabara, Kurama and Hiei to face off against their classic rivals from the iconic manganime.
Your first steps in the game bring Yusuke’s story to life from the very beginning, something that fans of the series won’t want to miss out on. Although you’ll enjoy dialog scenes that’ll help you rediscover the game’s storyline, the battles are its main appeal.
Combat in Yu Yu Hakusho Mobile is turn-based, following along in the footsteps of other popular manga-based games like Fairy Tail: Awakening and One-Punch Man – you have to choose the special skills of your characters, provided you have enough energy to do them. All you have to do is drag these powers from the cards at the bottom in order to be able to deploy them. Victory only comes once you’ve finished off all the enemies in each level.
As you make your way through Yu Yu Hakusho Mobile’s campaign mode, you’ll be joined by characters whose skills you can level up or improve strategically. But you can also achieve similar results through the typical gacha system found in most mobile RPGs.
Yu Yu Hakusho Mobile (幽游白书 武术会) comes with solid anime visuals that shrink the characters in this story down to a bite-sized ‘chibi’ version, as is usually the case in this type of game. All in all, you’re looking at a fine RPG based on one of the most popular manga of all time with fantasy animated illustrations for each time the characters deploy their most powerful attacks.
