Official Site: https://en.another-eden.jp/ Launch Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nq6aIC_4t9A * * * * * Another Eden is a free to play JRPG on mobile devices. It has heavy inspiration from the Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross titles, with veterans Masato Kato (Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Xenogears) and Yasunori Mitsuda (Xenogears, Chrono Series) "working on"/"contributing to" the game. A Nintendo Switch port is planned, but no further information has been provided. (Personally, I'm hoping for full voiceovers, as the mobile game only has partial due to space concerns.) The gameplay is straight up classic JRPG that one would normally find on consoles (so JRPG storylines, JRPG grinding, and so on). The only mobile aspect of Another Eden is the gacha element for new characters. While Gacha characters generally perform better than the story cast, it is entirely possible to play the game with just the main guys. No other mobile things, such as Stamina or community features, are present. Another Eden is just a classic JRPG, on mobile devices, with a gacha element for obtaining new characters. - - - - - - - - - - As for my personal experiences, I was recommended the game from guild mate from a different mobile title. I watched some trailers and did some research, and despite not having played the Chrono games, the premise of Another Eden sold me to download it immediately. I ended up actually playing the game some time later. Currently I'm at Chapter 11 or so, having just unlocked "Another Force" which is a special combat feature that lets characters constantly act while the gauge decreases. I haven't grinded for anything outside of doing side quests, but I'm starting to feel the difficulty rise (Lost a boss encounter, and I was unprepared for a sidequest encounter). Story has been pretty enjoyable thus far. Nothing spectacular has hit me yet (save for one early sidequest that was a collab with Famitsu of all things), but the story has been above average compared to other games I've played. I've loving the game thus far, but I have no idea how endgame works or what happens once I finish the main scenario. The fact that Another Eden is closer to "classic JRPGs" instead of being a "mobile JRPG" is a refreshing change of pace, especially since there is no pressure whatsoever to play each day (outside of the daily login bonus). Maybe this changes at max level since I'm still playing the main campaign, but I don't know much beyond what I've experienced. All I know is that I'm currently enjoying the game enough to make a post about it to see if anyone else is playing. * * * * * So yeah, that's pretty much it. Another else playing Another Eden or interested in trying it out?
