Square Enix Holdings Co, (or Kabushiki-gaisha Sukuwea Enikkusu Hōrudingusu), is a Japanese video game developer, publisher, and distribution company that is best known for its role-playing video game franchises.
This weekend, the firm is bringing Witchcraft‘s dragon-filled adventure, DRAKERIDER: Chains Transcendent – to mobile. Available for both iPhone and iPad, Square Enix is also making the brand new, anime-inspired game available for Android OS devices, too.
DRAKERIDER is an entirely new RPG for iOS and Android. You play as Aran Lawson, on a quest to save the world from destruction by the Dread, after stumbling into a pact with a dragon in the course of your regular work.
Ride into battle on your dragon’s back, keeping the mighty steed under control with reins of steel. Loosen your grip to let it find its full attack potential, but know that this is a brutal creature – given too much slack, it will attack its master, and your adventure will meet a hasty, premature end.
It’s kill or be killed, as you forge a tale with the world’s most lethal partner.
The stage of DRAKERIDER is set in Igraine, a world on the brink of destruction due to the repeated attacks of the Dread. Aran Lawson, once an ordinary tracker, now finds himself as a dragalier—and mankind’s final hope. This is the story of our hero and his dragon companion, Eckhardt.
The game lets you take the reins with a battle system like no other. Instead of entering commands, control the chains to execute your strategy. Easing off the reins will allow Eckhardt the freedom to unleash powerful attacks. Too much leeway, however, will trigger his primal instincts, endangering Aran.
50-percent off for a limited time, and both arriving with a initially FREE prologue which players can download from the iTunes App Store, today – DRAKERIDER: Chains Transcendent for iPhone and iPad will currently set you back $7.99 (each).
Meanwhile, those on Android can pick-up their copy of DRAKERIDER for just £9.41, and bask in the knowledge that the title will (probably) run on both their smartphone and tablet devices.
