Chaos Rings III Said To Have Over 50 Hours Of Play Time

chaosrings3_pq_03Chaos Rings III may be made for smartphones, but Media.Vision’s mobile RPG series isn’t a slouch when it comes to gameplay. Famitsu magazine reports Chaos Rings III has over 50 hours of playtime.


That’s probably a number given by Square Enix to Famitsu so we expect that to be on the high side. Nevertheless, Chaos Rings III sounds like it’s going to be a meaty game.


Famitsu also reveals three characters Nasca, the protagonist voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka, Leary voiced by Kanae Ito, and Daisuke voiced by Atsushi Abe. Here’s a look at the game.


Chaos Rings III is slated for release on iOS, Android, and PlayStation Vita on October 16. While the game has not been announced for the West, all of the Chaos Rings games have been localized into English.

    yo, square enix really didn’t name the vita version of chaos rings iii “prequel trilogy” when it’s just the third game, right? they’re not that dumb, right? Especially when it’s considerably more expensive than the phone build …

  • indra jaya

    chaos ring series always have multiple ending right? so 50 hours playtime to get all of ending or 50 hours for single playtrough? 25-30 hours of fun rpg still better than 200 hours+ rpg with a lot of filler though…

    • Nightmesh

      ..but…but…I like Star Ocean 3….

      • indra jaya

        ahh… star ocean 3, the best star ocean. I Should be more detailed then. I cant play rpg like I used to when I was teenager. so now always avoided rpg that need to be played 2-3 times to get the true ending. or rpg that the last 3-4 chapter was backtracking and remixed of old bosses. no offense for a grind lover though. just my humble opinion. and Im just 26 year old…

        • Nightmesh

          Your comment about the hours of filler just reminded me of SO3. I recently played and finish it a month ago again and dam I forgot how much crap in that game you have to do before the real story decides to show up fashionably late.

          I mean you could cut out all the stuff with out the stuff with Nel and her countries war and just have Fayt use his powers on the ship at the start and skip all that useless crap you do on her planet.

      Chaos Rings II is really the only one with alternate endings of the series, and it’s basically a Yes/No question determining if you get the good or bad ending. But it and Omega also have a joke ending in the post-game/extra scenario in Omega’s case.
      The four scenarios in the first game each lead into one definite conclusion.

  • Zypharium

    Finally, I normally do not play on my iPhone, but I just love this series. :) I really cannot wait to play this game.

  • Notquitesure?

    Quick question with the Omega ring games, does internet constantly have to be on in able to play the game or do you download it once and doesn’t internet to play it from that point?

    • Nickie

      That’s the best thing about Chaos Rings, NO! It doesn’t have to have net on! =D recently my phone/net/tv went down and all I had was power and was able to play them.

      • Notquitesure?

        Awesome thank you

  • mockturtle

    I’m confused, does the Vita version come with the other three games?

    • Monterossa

      there’s the first game in PS Mobile but I don’t know why SE stopped releasing the other 2 games.

    • rekka_zan

      I’m also confused

    • darke

      I read the Japanese article that siliconera linked to, and I was still confused. :? (But honestly that might just be because my Japanese is still in the ‘beginner to intermediate’ stage. :( )

      I’m still wondering if it’s just a remake of the first three games as a bundle with new art/gameplay and a little bit of extra story tacked on. :P

  • Wolfs_Rain

    Too bad they replaced Yusuke Naora. The previous games had a really distinct look to the characters. Now they just look like generic anime characters.

  • Kaitou21

    I got like 4 hours of gameplay on the first Chaos Rings, and 2 was averaged around 24 hrs. for all 4 endings (assuming you care to get them.) also the article doesn’t even mention whether that’s the average playtime or “super try hard completionist get everything you can out of the game (in other words how long it takes you to get each individual ending in one run)” number.

    • Jadfish

      Chaos Rings 1 is 4 hours long? Ok I am tempted to try playing it again

  • iamakii

    I just hope that 50 hours doesn’t compose of finishing the game four times.

    • JuhRo

      Most likely going to be this. beat the 8-hour game, 7 times.

      • Jadfish



  • Kornelious

    Unless you played through the game as fast as you can, or had multiple people play it, Only then can you really set a mark for how long it will be…..Every person play’s a game through at a different speed so it’s hard to tell how long one really is, You have to either take the lowest number or compare multiple

    And since the Vita version will undoubtedly be the more popular version, we can only hope that translates well in the west :)

    • Jadfish

      These kinds of things are always estimates though, so taking it literally is probably a little much. I’m downloading Chaos Rings 1 for my iPad now to see what it’s about – I have a flight where I need some kind of grinding

      • Lastlight

        Why not download it on your vita…if you have one…

        • Jadfish

          Chaos Rings 1 is on Vita? Should have known that before getting it for IOS, but it is honestly really good on iPad. It looks amazing and the music reminds me of PSone-era Square games

    • yomachaser

      How on Earth is the vita version going to be the more popular version? CR series is very popular on mobile. I’m not trying to be rude but some of the vita comments on here are mind boggling.

      This is a mobile series that is (after 3 other successful games) adding vita to it’s port list. I know this place has a lot of anti mobile types but don’t be delusional.

      • Kornelious

        That’s my point though, Because it has NEVER been on a Vita before, that’s why people will flock to get it FOR the Vita, to see what it looks like on a new system….Is that wrong? Or am I still delusional?

        • yomachaser

          That isn’t what your post sounded like honestly and in mobile the series has millions of sales already so I’m not understanding how with vitas low install base people will flock to buy it there in greater numbers than on mobile.

          Don’t get me wrong I’m happy SE is showing vita some love here but even if it sells great on vita it will still be a small figure comparatively.

          • Kornelious

            Fair enough…..I guess we’ll have to wait and see…..

  • leingod

    Well, I just hope this is a native Vita title instead of a PS Mobile one.

  • CirnoLakes

    I’ve kept meaning to play the Chaos Rings games. I own all of them so far but there’s so many games to play. I wish I had a clone so I could do all the things.

    I’ve heard really good things about Chaos Rings, though. Especially from mobile fans. So I’ve been excited to try it. These new games look great. I want to try them now more than ever.

    I love those anime designs. And 50 hours of good gameplay sounds nice.

  • joemari5

    “While the game has not been announced for the West, all of the Chaos Rings games have been localized into English.”

    And then they finally made this as an exception. >_< Kidding aside, I really would love to play this.
