Earlier this month, Square Enix announced a brand new entry in their popular mobile RPG series with Chaos Rings III. Though so far the game has only been announced for Japan, we're willing to bet that a North American release is pretty darn likely. Keeping that in mind, Squeenix has debuted the first trailer for Chaos Rings III on its main, Japanese YouTube channel. This means that the trailer is entirely in Japanese, but at least it gives you a glimpse at what the game will be like in motion.

So far this new Chaos Rings III trailer hasn't been uploaded to Square Enix's North American YouTube channel, but we'll keep our eye on it just in case it eventually is. With the Japanese release of Chaos Rings III set for October 14th on iOS, Android and Playstation Vita, I'd guess that if the game is set to hit Western shores it won't be any time soon, so we probably won't be getting any sort of English language trailers until that time approaches. We'll of course keep our eyes peeled for any further news, be it from Japan or otherwise, so stay tuned.

    Is it just me, or do the 3D backgrounds have less-- "character" than the older 2D ones did? It just felt to me like the 3D art is more generic and less distinctive than the static but more detailed 2D level backdrops.

    I'm sure the core gameplay is still solid, though, so there's definitely that to look forward to.

    Oh god collectable cards whyyy

  • curtneedsaride

    Yeah, compared to Chaos Rings II and even the first Chaos Rings, I don't think this one looks as good. Some of those environments are just too darn bright for me.

    I think this is still an insta-buy for me..

    The little battle-scream at the end there reminded me of Kirito's yell from Sword Art Online.

    • C. Stubb

      Just checked online: The same voice actor that plays Kirito, Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, is voicing the protagonist of this game. Sounds like a good thing to me!

      SAO = the poo-diggity-dawg!

    Anyone else thought that was Sora ? Lol

    • Psac42

      It looks A LOT like Sora.

    • C. Stubb

      Phew, I'm not the only one then.

  • Speedster117

    It would be awesome if this was one buy and no extra IAP or anything just the whole game and that's it but I doubt it. Also the main guy looks like sora.

      The CR series is a premium game series with no IAPs, unless of course SE decided to do one for this 3rd installment.

      • daniel schroeder

        It looks like there are collectible cards, and the summons or attacks they were doing at the end were with SR (super rare) cards. CR3 might not be F2P, but I'd bet it'll have plenty of F2P mechanics.

    Chaos ring II widescreen support? ;(

  • defunct32

    I wanna play as that hot burly man with the blond beard and cap!

  • Onikage725

    Vita?? Sweet. I recently loaded the first game onto mine, to save some space on my iPad.

    • Stormourner

      I'm with ya, I choose the console version of the mobile games to save up space on my iphone and ipad

  • rammywts

    They've definitely taken several steps back in the character design department, I've noticed

  • PoloBaquerizoH

    I think this will be a master piece

  • link6616

    No tale on the subtitle "prequel trilogy" at all...

  • MostOne

    I feel like somehow this is gonna connect to a final fantasy story line. Amazeballs

  • Devok

    Wow it's in vita, obviously it's almost $99 on vita, does this mean the ios gets a $50+ price tag? The game looks like a full 80h game, won't be cheap.

  • klouud

    I haven't been gaming on my iPhone in over a year - One word... Steam. - But this looks awesome!! Enough to bring me back to iOS!

  • your personal robot

    That music, wow! Looks ok, a bit (too) bright and childish. But it will be a fun ride for sure. I'm a big Chaos Rings fanboy.

  • TripMX

    Oh please....don't be online-only! This game uses a GATCHA card collection system...most of these types of games definitely require a constant internet connection just to play. I'm already preparing myself for disappointment; this game will certainly break the Chaos Rings cycle.

  • Rubius

    This looks fantastic, I'll definitely be playing this on day one. My only question is, when is Square going to release Final Fantasy 10 on ios? I feel like it should have come out years ago.
