With Chaos Rings Ω barely even two days old, Square Enix has released a teaser trailer for a sequel entitled Chaos Rings II. We weren't that impressed by the latest Chaos Rings offering in our review, as it felt a little too much like an expansion of the original Chaos Rings than something that is new or different enough to be its own game. But, again, if you loved Chaos Rings, and just are looking for more of that, chances are you'll also dig Chaos Rings Ω. It wouldn't really surprise me if this was also the case with Chaos Rings II.

The above teaser is all we know about the Chaos Rings sequel right now. Since the trailer doesn't show much gameplay and (as of this writing) is in entirely un-subtitled japanese... We don't know much. WIth Chaos Rings Ω's planned cycle of updates that run all the way through December this year, my crystal ball is telling me that Chaos Rings II is going to be a first quarter 2012 title, or maybe even a holiday release.

We'll just have to wait and see as more information slowly dribbles out of Squeenix. I just hope they do something a little different with Chaos Rings II.

     i wish i understood japanese, so i could enjoy these games they were designed.  its a beautiful sounding language, to me anyway.

    Square have finally discovered texture filtering! Whatever next, normal mapping?

    One can only hope...

  • Eastside Stompers

    I really hate it when games have violence and foul language....twats!

    • Stevenmilligan

       Then stop playing them. 

    • Tommy

       Jeez Eastside, can you please stop posting, you're clearly some soccer mom on here just trolling. If you were any self respecting gamer, you wouldn't care about bad language or violence in games.

      It's a troll posing as EastsideStompers.  Funny though.  :P 

  • John Tax

    looks like square find the goold old way :
    the first sells well ?

    make it a trilogy.

    it's sad nowadays, well done games allways need a second or a third installment…

  • raziel

    Omega is a little disappointing, I guess it's more like a expansion than
    a proper sequel. Chaos Rings II looks awesome though... Looks like this
    will be a proper new game.

    • Aarix

      What are you on? Have you even finished the game? HAVE YOU EVEN PLAYED IT?  It was a full game. Sure the maps were just skinned but thats to give it a familiar feel The story is very very very very different And it shows olgar and vahti from the past. 

  • Frumius

    Did you realize that the soundtrack has obscenities in it? I sorta think you should take it down and put up a clean version.  You
    can delete my post, too, if you want.  I just wanted to let you know in
    case it slipped by.

    Christ! What a bunch of whiners!  Simply judging from that trailer I'm personally excited for CR2.  The animation and graphics look much improved from the first one and there are new monsters and special effects.  Just hope its not all flash and that they improve upon the original's gameplay.

    I like the new character designs. I ignored Omega, but hopefully they'll improve this one enough to make it worth it.

  • E_Domina

    huh. This looks more like a traditional square rpg than Chaos Rings. But that's just judging from the gameplay and trailer. hopfully square will show more soon so we'll know what's happening here

  • Amr Taiyeb

    the main character is a feminine boy .... one of the things i loved about CR and CRO is that both escher and veig looked like real men...

      "i hope the gameplay is more varied than the original"
      "too bad-- this trailer doesn't really tell us anything about the plot"
      "what about racial diversity in the characters"

      Nope. instead, you say "omg this guy looks like a girl that makes me angry it will totally ruin the game"....as if hyper masculine men in video games are some kind of rarity...

      Yeah, I Especially like Dante in Omega,

    • Aarix

      Thats Square Enix for ya!

  • Picture Yourself

    I gave up all hope with SE like ten years ago, when they made a disapointing remake of Mystic Quest for Game Boy Advance. They recycle all their Final Fantasy Games three or four times. They not even decrease the annoying encounter rates in the FF 1-3 Remakes. Everything they made in the last years seems to be so uninspired. And even the old FF 3 Port for iOS beats the crap out of Chaos Rings.

       Seconding this...they really need some new writers or something-- there hasn't been a good memorable RPG experience from SquareEnix since they merged.

        SquareEnix has a couple good RPGs under their belt, but it's not a great ratio. Enix ruined Square for me in a lot of ways.

  • Lanstar

     Well, pretty much all i got from that was that she was begging him to kill her... for some reason. Pretty cool!

  • Eastside Stompers

    This game better not have any harsh language! I hate hearing words like damn, lame, and hell in video games and movies. Why can't all games be rated E, and all movies be G?

       You are such a f*g is hurts, please stop being a douche, and leave these forums forever.

     The moment one of these Chaos Rings has real battle animations for their spells not just the same spark with different colors I'll check back in,but so far this is like the laziest series IMO.

    Shes obviously telling him to kill her. You don't need to understand Japanese to know that....

    • http://twitter.com/Inaba_kun Phil Baxter

      That is indeed what she is asking.  "watashi o koroshite" - "please kill me."

      • Frumius

        Killing? Why can't these games be non violent?

      • Hahah

        IT'S A FIGHTING GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Eastside Stompers

        There's never an appropriate time for harsh language and violence!

        I know right?  These damn sinners and their foul language.  Hey, let's show the world that peace and love will conquer all.  Meet me by the bridge tonight so we can jump together and enter the glorious land!  I'll be right behind you so don't look back.

        If you're mature enough to realize that it's mild and not real, then it's not going to make you a mass murderer.  I agree that violence isn't okay in real life, but a mature individual will be okay playing a game with some violence.

      • haha

         double post, oops

      • Eastside Stompers

         I cringe when people try to pretend to be me, and leave bogus comments.....twat!

      • Hahah

        I honestly can't think of any way to respond to that...twat!

        All RPG's have fighting. How do you think link saved hyrue?

  • Dmarcoot

    I'm sorry, I dont have kids, but every parent I know who does would not
    want there CHILDREN hearing that song. Where did it say anyway where
    that this site would have that content? A responsible parent cannot even
    make an educated choice to not allow their child who likes games (the
    misson of this sit , right?) to enjoy is other non sociopathic content.

  • Gabe

     Oh man it looks so interesting!!! I mean why would she want him to kill her? I can't wait to find out! :D hope they pul off something great with the story. that's what I like the most about these japanese games, the stories they pull off

  • http://twitter.com/Dune_001 Jase Wayne

    looks awesome! will buy! thx Sqenix form making games for the ipad!

  • Subete

     Can't tell exactly, as my japanese is rusty, but as far as I can see, the story involves sacrificing that girl for the sake of saving the world.
    Also, the main character appears to be named "Darwin" or something like that ('Dawin' in japanese, so I'm just guessing...)The last few quotes are "Please Darwin, don't let everyone's sacrifice go to waste... kill me." (The girl) and at the very end, "I will protect this world, no matter the cost."They're just rough translations, so some of the tenses might be off, as I'm way out of practice, but I must say, the story seems quite dark this time. I think I'll enjoy it.

  • http://twitter.com/sowondiary sowon

    I translated this trailer since I only saw it yesterday and many people are very curious about it. My japanese isn't perfect but I at least you have it here. Sorry if there is any mistakes. 

    You have been chosen to save the world.
    I promised you that it will be the end, the time for the revelation has come, 
    you have been chosen, your destiny in is your hand, you will have to chose who will have to live and die..
    No, I can’t, I can’t. Telling me that the life of one person is more important than the whole world itself, what the hell do I have to do !?
    Why.. why do you have to kill dauin onisan (older brother) ?
    Is there really.. really no other choices ?
    And since you’ve been careless the world is becoming weaker and weaker
    I beg you dauin, let me sacrifice myself
    And don’t waste this sacrifice
    Kill... me
    mari and dauin are the two main characters. ダウイン and マリー
