A gacha game is a type of video game that uses a gacha (capsule-toy vending machine) system to obtain in-game items.
These items may include characters, weapons, armor, and other types of equipment, and they are often used to progress through the game or enhance a player’s abilities.
In a gacha game, players can typically obtain new items through a random drawing system, similar to the way capsule toys are obtained from a gacha machine.
Players may be able to purchase items directly, or they may need to collect in-game currency or real money to obtain them. Some gacha games also offer players the option to purchase items outright, rather than relying on chance.
Gacha games are popular in a variety of genres, including role-playing games (RPGs), strategy games, and collectible card games (CCGs).
They are often free-to-play, with in-app purchases or microtransactions available to help players obtain new items or progress more quickly through the game. Some gacha games also offer paid subscription options or other ways for players to spend real money in the game.
