Mobile Action-RPG Samurai Rising announced for Japan

Today Square Enix has announced a new “X-treme Action RPG” called Samurai Rising, which will be released on Android and iOS in Japan later this year.

Not much information was shared by the company, but at least we got a brief announcement trailer. As the title might suggest the game is set in a medieval Japanese fantasy world and some influences from the Final Fantasy universe can be seen. A swordsman, dragoon, white and black mage join the fight against Bombers or Malboros e.g. The trailer contains player characters fighting alone and inside a party, making a multiplayer-mode very likely.


The key art and overall character design look very similar to Akihiko Yoshida’s work, while the logo designs reminds us on classical Yoshitaka Amano designs.


There is currently no information about a Western release for this mobile title.
