Back in July of this year we reported on HyperDevBox announcing their next game which is called Record of Agarest War. Since then the company has been hard at work developing the game for its debut on Android and it seems that it is almost done as the company has announced today that Record of Agarest War will be arriving onto Google Play in the next few weeks.
For those of you who missed our previous article about this game, Record of Agarest War is a tactical-style RPG which was originally a collaborative effort between a couple of different game development studios back when Record of Agarest War was originally made. Even though this is a tactics-style RPG, there were a few unique features to this game such as the ability to chain or combo attacks should characters in your group be standing on the appropriate squares during combat.
Since this is a tactical game all the combat is turn-based, with one turn to move characters and one to unleash your attacks. The same goes for your enemies as well. We also now know how big this game will be and surprisingly, since this is considered to be one of the biggest tactical RPGs ever, HyperDevBox has managed to take the 6GB game and optimize all the data for mobile devices, shrinking it down to 1.8GB in size.
Thanks to our technology, We were able to optimize the original 6GB game data into 1.8 GB for mobile devices. However, I want to emphasize that the upcoming version is not a reduced/mobile version of the original, but retains the multimedia-rich game in its entirety, including all the original downloadable contents. – HyperDevbox founder and CEO Carlo Perconti
So even though the company has managed to shrink the game down in size, we won’t see any of the original content gone and instead we can expect the full game when it launches. As for when it will launch and a price, we don’t have exact details about that just yet, only that the game is coming in the next few weeks.
