Cris Tales resets the clock with July release date


Time is on your side

Modus Games has announced an approximate release window for its delayed but charming looking adventure Cris Tales. The time-hopping RPG, which did not meet its initial November 2020 release date, will now arrive in July on PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Stadia.

A new overview trailer gives us a fresh look at Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK’s magical world of spirit and adventure, as young time mage Crisbell and her newly met companions journey through the kingdom of Crystallis. This party is on a seemingly insurmountable quest to stop the nefarious Empress of the Ages, who is using her mastery of time itself to wreak chrono-based havoc on the kingdom.

Described by Modus as a “gorgeous, indie love letter to classic JRPGs,” Cris Tales features vibrant hand-drawn art and a plethora of characters and locations inspired by Colombian architecture and culture. When last year’s demo received a fairly lukewarm reception, Modus’ candidly stated that a delay would be put in place to allow for further polishing. I’m looking forward to exploring Cris Tales‘ world and meeting its characters, so here’s hoping that said delay will allow this intriguing new adventure to shine in all its splendor.
