SEGA Announces New RPG Sin Chronicle, Pre-registrations And Closed Beta Test Sign-Ups Are Now Open In Japan

After several years of speculation, SEGA has finally revealed the name of the Sin Chronicle mobile RPG, which will be the sequel to Chain Chronicle.


Last week, at the Tokyo Game Show 2021, SEGA officially announced Sin Chronicle, a top-secret mobile project that has been in development for several years. It is intended to be a follow-up title to 2013's Chain Chronicle, but it is not labeled as a direct sequel because Sin Chronicle takes place in a completely different world with a completely different cast of characters. There will be some elements from the original game that will be retained, including the combat system and the magical book known as The Chronicle. SEGA claims that this will be the "ultimate RPG," but only time will tell if this is true.

At TGS 2021, it was revealed that the game will be a choice-based experience in which players' decisions will have a long-term impact on the narrative. Choosing one path over another will have long-term consequences, and there will be no way to go back and undo previous decisions. As a result, every major decision made at the end of each chapter will determine how each subsequent playthrough will unfold. Player stories about the game should be shared on social media as well, as these are supposed to connect to form a more comprehensive narrative about the game.



According to SEGA, each chapter of the game is expected to be around 10 hours long. Aspects of your story will be affected by the characters you recruit to assist you on your quest. Characters you recruit will also determine the game's bond episodes, in which you can interact with party members who are not the main character. Although turn-based battles are used, the exploration and combat scenes appear to be quite action-packed. However, given that it is a free-to-play title, it will come as no surprise if the game's in-app purchases include access to a summons pool.



Sin Chronicle will be available for download on both iOS and Android devices starting on December 15th in Japan, with no word on when the game will be released in other parts of the world. The Japanese version of the game is already available for pre-registration on the official website, in case you're interested in giving it a shot. Additionally, you can sign up for the closed beta right now, as the CBT will be taking place from October 14th to October 21st.
