FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
London (27th April 2010)– Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces that CHAOS RINGS™ has become the number one selling RPG iPhone game around the world. Since its launch on 20th April, 2010 (available via iTunes® Store ( www.itunes.com) and App Store worldwide) CHAOS RINGS has held the top sales position in 14 countries around the world including USA and Japan.
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.

5 couples from around the world are summoned together by a mysterious being
known only as "The Agent". The Agent tells them that they must
fight to the death in a tournament called the Ark Arena.

The sole reward for the victors? The promise of eternal life..."
