Each and every day new mobile games are hitting the App Store, and so each week we put together a big old list of all the best new releases of the past seven days. Back in the day the App Store would showcase the same games for a week, and then refresh those features each Thursday. Because of that developers got into the habit of releasing their games throughout Wednesday or very early Thursday in order to hopefully get one of those coveted features spots. Nowadays the App Store refreshes constantly, so the need for everyone to release all on the same day has diminished. Still, we’ve kept our weekly Wednesday night format as for years that’s the time people knew to check TouchArcade for the list of new games. And so without further ado please check out the full list of this week’s new games below, and let us know in the comments section which games you’ll be picking up!   Another Eden iTunes Description Game Overview ・An unprecedented amount of content in the smartphone game world. ・Single Player Large Scale RPG. ・From master story writer Masato Kato, an epic story crossing the Antiquity, Present, and Future. ・Includes over 60 songs composed with orchestras and folk music, with the main theme written by Mitsuda Yasunori.

But the Korean company said its mobile division showed improvements due to “better material cost controls and overhead efficiencies based on the company’s platform modularization strategy.” LG says it’ll push 5G smartphones and phones with “different form factors” in order to improve its mobile footing. The company adds that it’ll also focus on “key” markets, such as the U.S. and Korea, where the brand is still doing well. Editor’s Pick LG in 2019: No more excuses It felt like LG had a fairly anonymous 2018, as companies like Huawei, Samsung, and Xiaomi dominated the mobile world instead.
