This just in! Tomorrow, Microsoft will be releasing not one, but two titles for the Windows Phone OS. The first is Square Enix’s Chaos Rings A 3D RPG classic game that any RPG fan will enjoy. Chaos Rings presents an epic tale comprised of four different scenarios, all brought to you with gorgeous sound and unbelievably smooth 3D graphics. The game is set to release on Windows Phone 7.8 and Windows 8. Take a look at the trailer for Android below:
The story of Chaos Rings revolves around eight people who must participate in a mysterious tournament against their wills. The winners receive eternal life while the losers unfortunately stop living. Each of the four pairs has their own short playthrough (around six hours), and finishing everyone’s story opens up a conclusion to the entire tale. Plus some equipment earned from enemies carries over between those stories. On the whole it’s a clever way to make the game digestible for mobile audiences.
Graphically, Chaos Rings works much like Final Fantasy VII. In the overworld, backgrounds are pre-rendered and characters are 3D. During battles and cinemas, everything uses 3D graphics. The original game dates back a couple of years, but the character designs still impress. Chaos Rings also has a fantastic soundtrack and Japanese voice acting (with English text, of course).
Chaos Rings will run on Windows Phone 7 or 8. The file size will be somewhere between 700MB-1GB. Given our platform’s need for up to four times a game’s size in order to actually install it, RPG fans might want to start clearing room now.
If ten bucks is too rich for your blood, perhaps you’ll find this three-dollar game more appealing. Gravity Guy 2 is launching exclusively on Windows Phone 8 prior to its eventual iOS and Android release. Miniclip has been a fairly active supporter of Microsoft’s mobile OS, so it’s cool to see them give us a game before everyone else gets it.
Gravity Guy 2 will cost $2.99. We’re told it will release in all territories except for Russia, Taiwan, Brazil and Korea… But Microsoft often gets the release territories wrong in these advance notices, so we’ll see.
