On September 13th, 2014, Sega Networks announced that their Chain Chronicle smartphone role-playing game and their Chain Chronicle V PlayStation Vita role-playing game would be entering into a “large-scale” collaboration with the Nanatsu no Taizai series. This event was announced during their Sega Networks Fan Appreciation Festival event, along with other new events. New information will be released on a later date.
Chain Chronicle is a fully voiced role-playing game that also combines the genre with tower-defense elements. It features artwork from Takeshiro Nishiki, HACCAN, and Wada Aruko. Your characters start on the right of the screen, and you must drag them onto enemies to attack! With over 4 million downloads in Japan, the journey to become the best captain and save Yggdra is a very popular one. Chain Chronicle was created by gumi Inc, one of the most popular mobile game developers on Japan’s leading mobile social gaming network, GREE. Gumi recently teamed up with Sega to bring games to foreign countries.
Gumi’s synopsis of Chain Chronicle:
Gather up your forces and repel the Black Army to keep them from destroying the world of Yggdra! As a captain of the “Volunteer Army,” you have to protect your kingdom and engage your enemies in incredibly deep real-time strategy role-playing style combat!
Recruit allies along the way, each with different skills and tales of their own to advance this epic story of good versus evil.
