Tales of Link Sword Art Online

Actually, before we even get to the crossover, did you know there was a BANDAI NAMCO “Tales of…” game for iOS? That news somehow eluded us, even though we’re fans of the popular RPG series having played the games on the 3DS, PS3, etc.

Tales of Link, as the mobile variation is called, is a “free-to-play” RPG that features many of your favorite characters from the series. The game is…

… set in a world protected by the “Seal of the Holy Shrine.” When the seal to the heavenly world is suddenly broken, the “Seed of Ruin” is unleashed, scattering demons across the land. These demons bring inevitable disaster and threaten to inflict war and suffering on the world, and it’s up to you to stop them! Join your favorite “Tales of” characters on an epic journey to cleanse the world of these demons and stop them from destroying heaven and earth!

And you’ll do this by using a “touch-link battle system” in which you’ll link up over 100 characters for over 360,000 possible team combinations. Train your heroes and release their special Mystic Artes to defeat opponents with tactical RPG-style gameplay.

As for the crossover event, which we’re seeing in celebration of the game’s one year anniversary, players will be able to challenge a character named Asuna “Flash of White” from Sword Art Online, take on a new quest entitled the “Aincard Offensive,” and earn daily bonuses just for logging into the game.

If that’s not enough JRPG goodness, there are more events in the game for players to find, and you can find some details on Facebook.

Tales of Link is available now for free in the iTunes App Store, with myriad IAP options, of course.
