• New Smartphone Action RPG from SE is a lot like Crystal Chronicles

    Square Enix announced a new Smartphone game called Samurai Rising this week. It's an action RPG that seems incredibly similar to Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles.

    While the game itself is not officially a Final Fantasy title, you can see that it has heavy influences on it. Not only are the characters looking like a White Mage, Dragoon, Black Mage and Fighter, but the monsters themselves look to be Final Fantasy-esque themselves. You can see a Bomb, a Marlboro, and a Coeurl among other monster familiar monsters. Even the website's art looks similar to what we know of Final Fantasy before.

    If you're interested in pre-registering than you can do so here at their website.

    This action RPG will be coming to Japan only this summer but Square Enix showed off a gameplay trailer today. There's no word if we'll get to play it over here in the west but if it's successful, we may be graced with this fun looking game.

    This game will be free-to-play with micro-transactions on the iOS and Android. What are your thoughts? Do you think they should have just called this a Final Fantasy?

      I still want to go back and play through the original Crystal Chronicles with friends someday. Never even tried any of the DS or Wii Crystal Chronicles games.

      I don't really have too much to say on this. I honestly don't play games on my phone very much and would prefer playing something like this on my 3DS. Could be fun though! I'd rather just get Final Fantasy Explorers though as that one looked like it was Crystal Chronicles-like too.

      Looks more like Explorers than Crystal Chronicles. Not that I am surprised. Explorers was 'fun' I suppose, but no where near even the lows of Crystal Chronicles.

      I miss CC so much, the original game is my favorite multiplayer game of all time. I bought four link cables and four GBAs for that game and never regretted it. It's a masterpiece.
