When you hear about a new JRPG from veteran Masato Kato (Chrono Trigger, Xenogears, Final Fantasy XI), it’s hard not to get excited. Then you hear it’s a mobile game, and expectations lower. Finally, it’s released as a free-to-play gacha game and all hope is nearly lost.
The game stars Aldo, the game’s protagonist, and his sister Feinne. The game follows them as a demon king seeks to use Feinne’s dormant abilities to erase humans from the world. During a desperate moment, while failing to rescue his sister, a distortion in space-time occurs in the air, and Aldo escapes 800 years into the future
The game primarily plays as a side-scrolling RPG, at times opening up for full 3D movement. The player directly maneuvers a character between locations and interacts with non-playable characters to progress through the game.
Confrontations with enemy characters are played out with turn-based battles. While new characters join the party and grow stronger naturally over the course of the game flow, the player may spend real-world currency on obtaining stronger items and characters as well. You can download it here.
