Cris Tales

Publisher Modus Games and developers Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK have released a 15-minute “Present and Future” gameplay overview video for Cris Tales.

Here is an overview of the footage and game, via Modus Games:

Today’s gameplay video joins protagonist Crisbell as she discovers her incredible ability to observe and manipulate past and future visions of her surroundings at any time. With a little help from her dapper amphibian ally, Crisbell’s power can be used to shape a brighter future, changing both the lives of those around her and the wider world. The video closes with a first look at the game’s Synchro system in combat which allows team members to combine their skills for powerful results. Get a sense of just how reactive Cris Tales’ gorgeous environments are and the tough decisions Crisbell faces by viewing the full video.

Cris Tales is a JRPG where players can fight and explore across the past, present, and future simultaneously. Strategic use of these eras grants massive in-battle advantages, and the effects of decisions make ripples across a striking, hand-drawn 2D world, giving players true agency over their story and the ending they earn.

Cris Tales is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, PC via Steam and GOG, and Stadia in early 2021.
