Earlier today (or yesterday in Japan time), Square Enix released a new RPG on iOS called Star Burial Dragnir in Japan. This game was made in conjunction with Akifumi Kaneko, the head of Witchcraft Inc. and the man behind the Wild Arms series. It has been split up episodically into five chapters, with chapter one being available for free. Chapters two through five can be purchased for 600 yen a piece, or you can purchase the entire game for 1800 yen. This marks a departure from Square’s previous iOS offerings like Chaos Rings and Final Fantasy III (the DS one, not the SNES one that Square renamed to III), where they charge somewhere around $15 to $20 for the game.

There’s no word on whether this game will be released in North America at this time, but I hope they bring it over. Telltale’s Back to the Future and Hector: Badge of Carnage have proven that episodic games can work on iOS. If nothing else, it’ll give many people something to chew on while they wait for the next big RPG.
