If you recall, last month Square-Enix posted a job listing to work on a new IP exclusively for the iPhone called Chaos Rings. It was planned to be released sometime this year, but it looks like the (short) wait is finally over as Chaos Rings has finally made it into the App Store.
Unlike previous iPhone titles released by Square-Enix, this is the first title with full 3D visuals which will certainly push your iPhone’s hardware to its limits. What makes this title stand out is not only is it an iPhone exclusive RPG game from a well known publisher, but the team behind Chaos Rings worked on both the Wild Arms & Final Fantasy series. Chaos Rings also uses a “classic game system any RPG fan will enjoy”. If all that doesn’t sell you, then here’s a synopsis of the game’s story:
The story revolves around a tournament where combatants fight for their lives: the Ark Arena. Upon choosing a pair of characters, one male and one female, you will then have to fight against the other pairs. Each pair has their own story, and the truth behind the Ark Arena will not be revealed until each story is completed.
Square-Enix is also putting their current iPhone titles on sale to celebrate the launching of Chaos Rings. Here’s the full list of titles currently on sale:
