Mixing elements of traditional strategy RPGs like Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre with board games and dice-rolling, Square Enix Collective’s new title Children of Zodiarcs is a compelling throwback to old-school SRPGs for a new era, as a new trailer has accompanied the game’s launch today.
Publisher Square Enix Collective has released a new trailer for Children of Zodiarcs, which showcases plenty of the game’s combat and more while also giving viewers some insight into the game’s story and characters, as players will be challenged to “reclaim your legacy” throughout the adventure.
We recently reviewed Children of Zodiarcs ahead of the launch, and our own Azario Lopez – who scored the title at a 9.0/10 – found it to be a thrilling throwback to some of the classic SRPG titles while also integrating some unique mechanics to the formula, as he explained:
Children of Zodiarcs is the game that story-driven SRPG fans have been waiting for. It’s evident when playing through that the developers at Cardboard Utopia are passionate about delivering a product that could potentially fall in line with some of the genre’s greats. However, by adding unique mechanics and a focus on character growth, Children of Zodiarcs stands out as simply a great SRPG.
Children of Zodiarcs is available now for PS4 and PC – for a closer look at the title, you can check out the launch trailer below:
