Modus Games has shared a new trailer and confirmed a release window for the studio’s upcoming role-playing game, Cris Tales.
We’ve been following the development of Cris Tales since its impressive reveal at E3 2019. It’s a striking JRPG tribute that features outstanding art direction, and an intriguing time-bending gameplay conceit.
Modus Games has been relatively quiet regarding the game’s progress, but the studio has now confirmed it will launch this July on Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Steam, Epic Games Store, GOG and Stadia. Pre-orders are open now from the official Cris Tales website.
To accompany the announcement, Modus has unveiled a new trailer that showcases some more of the game’s locations and featues. A new blog post from the studio also takes a detailed look at its characters, combat, and gameplay mechanics.
Cris Tales – Overview Trailer
If you’re curious about Cris Tales, you don’t have to wait until July to sample the game. A free demo is still available from the Xbox Digital Games Store, PlayStation Store, Nintendo eShop, Steam, and GOG.

We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
