Chaos Rings III

Chaos Rings III: Prequel Trilogy will include Chaos Rings, Chaos Rings II, and Chaos Rings Omega in addition to Chaos Rings III on PS Vita, Square Enix announced.

If you’re at the Tokyo Game Show next month, the game will be playable.

Chaos Rings III will launch on October 16 in Japan.

Watch a new nine-minute gameplay video below.

Thanks, Re: Zaregoto, Games Talk.

    I hope it will come to the west, and, if I’m not asking too much, a physical release as well

    • Six

      You are. Just be thankful for your mobile ports.

      • desponent

        What ironic is this game probably has more budget, dev and care given than some of the dedicated portable games.

    • Martian Wong

      I am all for the physical version.

  • Chaos King

    English version please.

  • Martian Wong

    Awesome. I just hope we will get the same thing.

  • Rafael Martines

    Sora?

    • tabegoro

      Sion from the Bouncer?

  • Elvick

    So it did mean “Prequel (Omega) &/+ Trilogy (I, II, III)”.

    Still don’t get why they picked that title, but hey it’s Japan.

    I hope we get a retail copy in the west for Vita. I’ve been hoping to get native ports of these, since I have zero hopes in SE making actual Vita games. So may as well get some ports instead of nothing.

    Now port mobile TWEWY, Theatrhythm, FF Dimensions, Deus Ex and others… or just the first two. :p Would buy Theatrhythm again on Vita.

    • Hidayat246

      I don’t think so
      The reason chaos ring come to vita because is media vision decision not SE

      • Zackasaur

        It’s definitely SE’s decision. They pay for it.

      • JonathanisPrimus

        Media.Vision isn’t even doing the Vita ports, a studio called Bullets is. Square Enix owns the IP. They’re definitely the ones who decided on this.

    • phayroent

      I’d settle for Type-0 and Agito.

  • bloodiOS

    Sorry for being out of the loop and not fully comprehending this but is it saying that Chaos Rings III: Prequel Trilogy is a port of the mobile version and will now run natively on Vita?

  • MK

    It should be called Chaos Rings III + Prequel Trilogy

    • Elvick

      Not really, since Omega is the prequel. While I, II and III are the Trilogy. The insistence of including “III” in the title kind of makes it derpy no matter how you do it though.

      • MK

        They meant Omega, I, and II as the “prequel trilogy” of III.

        • Elvick

          If SE meant that, then that’s dumb. Prequels aren’t usually part of a trilogy.

          GoW Ascension, GoW and GoW 2 aren’t a “Prequel Trilogy” to 3. Omega was a prequel I don’t see how they could shove it with 1 & 2 to make a “trilogy”.

          That kind of flies in the face of convention.

  • desponent

    Well now this sorta justifies the price compared to mobile then. Kinda want.

  • rekka_zan

    Yeah! US version please!

    That’s SO MUCH brighter and more colorful now. How is this possibly related to the last Chaos Rings? It looks more like…. Xenoblade by way of Spectrobes Origins* now. Not saying that it’s not good looking; it’s just very different.

    Boom. Now I’m officially excited for this.

  • Zackasaur

    Localise, localise, localise…

    In legitimate physical copies. For Vita.

    • novurdim

      Hm, I just thought that SE had never ported smartphone-games on PS4 yet…

  • Mark Lengod

    This one looks very different from previous ones (visually speaking). Almost Wild Arms-ish. I wonder if Media Vision miss working on the series :P

  • PrinceHeir

    Looks fun as hell!

  • Learii

    I would buy it I always want a screen touch base turn JRPG

  • http://s932.photobucket.com/ usagi_san

    Looks really awesome – I want this! Four games packed into one bundle? Localisation, please!

  • MOEING

    Awesome… totaly going to buy it if it’s localized.

    BTW, shouldn’t it be titled “Chaos Ring Chronicles” or “Chaos Ring Saga” then?

    • Guest

      Who cares about the title anyway ? Oh, yeah, sorry, you do care.

  • Rafael Mestre

    I was worried about Vita games and stuff… But seeing so many games coming and being announced, I think everything’s gonna be alright for the time being.

  • Pekola

    This series has slowly built itself up so much.

    And man, the music is great. A World Without Tears is A+

  • http://www.hush404.com hush404

    This is an interesting development. Rather than a dedicated handheld game being ported to mobile, we’re getting the reverse. I’ve not played any in the series, but am interested in this idea.

  • River Goldman

    Its almost like final fantasy!
