An Apple Watch-Exclusive RPG Is Being Released By Square Enix

RPGs are typically games that are saved for home consoles, due to their larger scope and length. While the genre has been growing on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, an RPG that Square Enix has in development right now is on one of the smallest devices you can get.

The device in question is the Apple Watch, and the game in question is called Cosmos Rings. Square Enix called the game the world’s first Apple Watch-exclusive RPG, and it apparently is only possible on the device because it sends you messages that depend on your daily step count.

As for the people who are involved with the game, the biggest name is perhaps Yusuke Naora, who was the art director for Final Fantasy 7, 8, 10 and 15. The plot itself is a bit of a head-scratcher at this point, as players must bring back the Goddess of Time after the previously-halted time begins ticking again.

That’s all the information we have on the game for now, though more is expected to be coming very soon. Hopefully we’ll get some gameplay footage and more of an explanation on the story, as well as a concrete release date.
