Square Enix Unleashes Action RPG Drake Rider On Android
Square Enix has a strange habit of releasing its games on Android with little warning or fanfare. You never quite know when the house that Final Fantasy built will drop its next mobile blockbuster. It seems that trend will continue with their latest English language release Drake Rider, a port of the dragon themed action RPG that Square released last year on iOS, quietly arriving on Google Play.
Much like the legendary Sega Saturn RPG Panzer Dragoon Saga, Drake Rider is set in a world where giant dragon like creatures roam the land. Know as Drakes they are ridden by human trainers by the name of Dragaliers who use them for both good and evil. As the newly recruited Dragalier Aran, players will embark on a perilous journey with his drake Eckhardt to stop an ancient force of destruction from bringing about armageddon.
Drake Rider is a visually stunning JRPG with gameplay and production value on the level of the Chaos Rings games. You can pick it up for about $15 on Google Play.
