It’s a new gacha RPG that focuses largely on strategy, featuring engaging real-time combat mechanics. You play as the Director, taking a stand against the arrival of Fantasyland.
Play Now In Select Countries
Last week Bilibili announced that Higan: Eruthyll would soft launch in select countries. Today sees the studio follow through with its words – the game is now available to download in Singapore, Canada, and Malaysia.
If you aren’t familiar with a soft launch, then it’s essentially a developer stress-testing the game with smaller audiences before introducing the game globally. In this case, Bilibili will be able to figure out what works for Higan: Eruthyll, and what doesn’t, before the full launch.
However, this doesn’t stop lots of eager fans from using VPNs to play the game in regions where it’s not yet available.
A Redditor shared a post on r/gachagaming about the soft launch. Naturally, a discussion followed in the post’s comment section, and fans are sharing their initial thoughts.
One user, @filthnfury, expressed a positive reaction, “Liking it so far. Combat’s great, story’s a bit confusing but I don’t really care about that in a mobile game. Cutscene and animation quality is high.”
Another user, @SkyMarshall_Ellie, summed up their first impressions in a single sentence, “Damn it’s good so far.”
Contrasting these warm reactions is @TurbulentYesterday7, who wrote “I don’t like the combat system at all. Its like Eversoul which I hated too.”
It seems overall the game is being received quite well by the gacha community. However, it’s evidently not for everyone. You can check out the ongoing conversation in full by reading the original Reddit post.
