▍ About Hunter x Hunter Arena Battle
Hunter x Hunter Arena Battle is a mobile strategy card battle RPG game made by DeNA and currently hosted by Q-max. In a game heavily influenced by Othello/Reversi, players take turns placing character cards with numerous attributes that empower themselves to deal damage according to how many opponent cards they flip. Action and support cards round out the combat system, allowing players to gain advantages in different ways, as they aim to bring the opponent’s HP to zero!
Deck building is key to climbing up to the upper echelons of the leaderboard, with the game featuring an extensive community suite that allows for PvP matches against others.
Featuring voice acting reprised by the cast of the 2011 anime adaptation, the game features animation stills from the anime as well, allowing fans to relive moments from the long-running series.
Hunter x Hunter Arena Battle has a rating of 4.1 at QooApp Game Store.
