Wild Arms: Million Memories, the Wright Flyer Studios-developed smartphone RPG in the long-running PlayStation series, will launch for iOS and Android devices “soon” in Japan, publisher ForwardWorks announced. It will be free-to-play with in-app purchases.
Here is an overview of the game, via its official website:
The ruined planet, Filgaia.
Ashley, Virginia, Jude, Dean, and Clarissa—adventurers known as “Migrant Birds”—were in trouble due to Mother, the leader of the Metal Demons.
Are they not able to stop mother’s plan? Will they have to accept their fate of despair?
Mother’s crazy laughter echoes.
Countermeasures against the worst possible situation should have been devised, and yet such a situation is occurring…
“Why did you betray everyone? Rudy…”
Fates will cross, and feelings will connect—-.

A cheerful girl born and raised in Blue Caravan. She is training with enthusiasm to become an ARM master under her grandfather Clarence, and inherited his skills and passion. She is honest, fearless, and can get along with anyone, but tends to take action without thinking of the consequences. Her partner Phiel often admonishes her for it.
■ Story Progression
Players will read the scenario while clearing battle quests to progress through the game. The scenario consists of three elements. The “Main Story” follows the journey of Rudy and company. “Sub-Quests” depict the episodes of each character not told in the Main Story. And “Events” include time-limited episodes and time-unlocked quests.
■ Battle System
Enjoy exhilarating battles with simple controls. Swipe to move, tap to attack, and flick to dodge. If you dodge perfectly, you will become invicible for a fixed time. By long pressing the screen, you can use a charge attack, and by matching the timing of an enemy’s attack, you can use a charge counter.
By using the power of your pre-set “ARM,” or “Awakening of Resonant Memories,” you can unleash special techniques at any time. ARMs in this game are card-shaped devices that embody the memories of Filgaia through a special piece of metal called the “Dragon Fossil.” Those memories possess extremely strong power. Various ARMs are being prepared, including ARMs tied to famous scenes and characters from the series.
You can take up to three characters into battle, and can change between them by tapping the character’s icon during combat. By landing standard attacks, your gauge in the lower-right of the screen will increase. When it fills up, you can activate a character-unique Force Ability with a special effect to gain the upper hand.
