Celebrate the release with Special Offers across the Square Enix range of iPhone titles

London (20th April 2010)– Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX? interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces CHAOS RINGS™ is now available on the iTunes? Store ( www.itunes.com) and App Store worldwide.

A brand-new RPG developed for the iPhone/iPod touch; CHAOS RINGS is set around a battle tournament called Arca Arena, where teams of two compete for victory and eternal life. Characters will gain levels and earn experience points from defeating their foes to upgrade their team’s combo skills, enabling the pair to launch bigger, stronger and more devastating attacks.

The unique story of CHAOS RINGS will unfold based on the pairing of characters that the players choose. By experiencing the story lines of each pairing, the true mystery of Arca Arena will be unveiled.

Featuring a turn-based battle system, players are given the choice between”solo” moves, where they can enter commands separately, or“pair” moves, to execute actions as a team. Working as a“pair” allows the characters to concentrate their efforts for more effective power. Defeating enemy monsters allows players to obtain specific DNA information called“gene,” which players can equip to learn the monster’s magic and special attack moves.
