mobile app game titled Cardfight!! Vanguard: Cray Wars (カードファイト!! ヴァンガード 惑星大戦 Kādofaito!! Vangādo Wakusei Taisen?, lit. Cardfight!! Vanguard Planet Wars) was released on March 12, 2013. It is a strategy role-playing game and is region-locked to prevent devices outside of Japan from installing it. The game introduces an original character named Navica, who acts as the player's guide in the world of Cray and explains the game mechanics to them. The game's storyline is based around the Virtual Vanguard System (VVS), which generates a virtual space in which people experience the world of Cray, an earthlike planet where magic and science have progressed hand in hand. Each continent of Cray is dominated by one of six prospering nations. Through the VVS, the player's avatar dives into this dreamlike world and fights daily battles for one of these nations. However, a sudden abnormality upsets this scenario. Players move their avatars about the world map of Cray using a six-sided die, accepting and completing quests to receive items and gold to advance the storyline. Two types of deck are composed for use within the game: one to be used in battle and one with which to besiege dungeons. Each deck has six cards; skills are triggered in the battle deck based on the position of cards in relation to one another, while the dungeon deck makes use of skills related to manipulating die and avoiding traps. In addition to the player's avatar having a level, individual cards have levels. Increasing the cards' levels enhances skills. Leveling up and skill synthesis allows cards to be customized so that two players may have the same card but different abilities.

Nintendo 3DS video game adaption titled Cardfight!! Vanguard: Ride to Victory!! (カードファイト!! ヴァンガード ライド トゥ ビクトリー!! Kādofaito!! Vangādo Raido tu Bikutorī!!?) was released in Japan on April 11, 2013. It was developed by FuRyu. The game features a new original story which stars a new cardfighter protagonist who is aiming to win at a national tournament. Players choose one of six possible original characters to play as. The characters are broken down to three personality types: hot-blooded (熱血系), cool (クール), and dark (ダーク). Each personality is further broken down to having one male and one female character. The game features appearances by at least 30 characters from the anime such as Aichi Sendou, Toshiki Kai, Ren Suzugamori, Misaki Tokura, and Shin Nitta. In the game, players fight rivals while also strengthening their card decks to win the national tournament championship. Additionally, players can earn points through the story mode tournaments and through free play, and players can then spend those points at the Card Capital shop to purchase better cards to build a stronger deck. There is also a tutorial mode for those who are new to playing the actual TCG. The game also features wireless online play.

It will also be developed by FuRyu. This game's story will be based on the Link Joker arc of the anime series. Similar to the first game, players will choose to play as one of the previous game's original characters and will attend one of the high schools depicted in the anime. The game's wireless battle mode will be greatly expanded. For example, the game's AI will continue an online match if a disconnection occurs. The game will support a wireless link-up method similar to Nintendogs.
