Rather surprisingly, this is the very first article we've written about Cris Tales here on Push Square. That is despite the PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 game being common knowledge for quite some time now — we're not too sure what happened there. Anyway, the trailer above can be considered the perfect introduction then. Publisher Modus Games have slapped a July 2021 release window on the RPG as of today and this two-minute slice of footage is designed to give you a complete overview of what's what in Cris Tales.

The colourful art style is what got internet forums abuzz with chatter initially, but there's also deep gameplay to go alongside it. Plus there's a talking frog. Classic JRPG combat is what gets us excited, and you'll be recruiting party members from the present as well as the past. Good stuff from developers Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK.
