Modus Games, Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK have shared a new trailer for Cris Tales which is coming to Nintendo Switch.
This trailer is narrated by the steel-willed protagonist Crisbell, revealing her motivations and the catalyst that makes her set out on her time-altering quest to save the world from tyranny.
There’s also new gameplay footage to see including explosive combat scenes and the chance to meet JKR-721 and Zas, who will join Crisbell’s party.
Cris Tales is described as an “indie love letter to classic JRPGs” that will challenge players to guide the time mage Crisbell on her quest through past and future visions of her world to end the merciless Empress’ rule and prevent a cataclysm.
That quest will take you through five varied regions, where you will see such sights as the pristine towers of the kingdom of Crystallis or the grimy slums of Saint Clarity.
With the ability to peer into the past, act in the present, and watch as your choices dynamically change the future, your actions will have a profound impact – leading you to a branching ending.
The turn-based battles will require a calculated strategy, where, using the time magic mechanic, you can change the timelines of your enemies – opening windows to coordinate team strikes, defense possibilities, and warping timetables.
Cris Tales will release at retail and on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch worldwide on 17th November 2020 priced at £34.99 (€39.99).
