Chained Echoes, the pixel-perfect JRPG developed by Matthias Linda and published by Deck13 Spotlight, finally receives a release date. Perfectly blending fantasy with Mechs and Airships, its arrival on December 8th on PlayStation 4 & 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch and PC will immerse gamers into a story-driven epic.
Chained Echoes will also be available through Xbox Game Pass on PC, consoles and via the Cloud on Day 1.
A Magnum Opus 7 Years in the Making
After seven years of development, the Magnum Opus from solo developer Matthias Linda, Chained Echoes, a traditional, all-encompassing JRPG, inspired by classics of the SNES and PSX era, is finally finished. Gamers from all around the world can now engage in an outstanding JRPG fantasy that is full of exciting challenges and appeal.
Players will find themselves within the continent of Valandis, which, after centuries of war, is finally at peace. However, this world they are in is marked by possible conflict and rumours that a weapon of mass destruction is an imminent danger. Peace is fragile, conflicts lasting for centuries just won’t disappear, and a new war could break loose anytime soon… Can a group of strangers restore peace? Can the weapon be destroyed?
Chained Echoes is absolutely jam-packed. It features magic, mechs, swords, boss fights, turn-based combat, a complex story and roughly 40 hours of content. Many JRPG fans will see the inspirations from a mile away.
While being a turn-based game, the Overdrive Combat System ensures that the fights are fast-paced while still offering massive tactical depth. Creatively tune the skillset of your party and slay even the most vicious foes like a whirlwind.
The new trailer reveals a few more gameplay scenes, showing off the combat system, some mecha fights and some of the stunning pixel visuals Matthias created.
Old-school physical editions
Chained Echoes will also receive a physical release in Summer 2023 and is now available for pre-order.
Exclusively distributed by First Press Games, it will receive premium physical editions for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and PC DVD. Each with different variants that vary in terms of included goodies and merch. Esoundsignal’s Original Soundtrack as a 2CD release is also on offer separately.
