Square Enix’s new RPG Guardian Codex promises a new and futuristic twist to the genre.
Bold claims there, especially for an RPG of the hand-held variety but there might just be a chance that the marketing blurb is on to something in this case.
Guardian Codex is a free-to-play RPG for iOS and Android from the team behind the popular – and highly recommended – card battle games, Guardian Cross and Deadman’s Cross. Between them the two titles have amassed a not insignificant eight million combined downloads worldwide.
Guardian Codex features the familiar Guardians of the series but takes place in a new – and allegedly exciting – world with a deep story, console-quality 3D graphics, and an engaging multiplayer battle system also among the promises.
Set in the year 2030, Guardian Codex sees the world split between the Empire and Resistance forces. Players will venture into the virtual world of the Codex with a mission to find the legendary Guardians and restore peace to the world. All in a day’s work for any self-respecting RPG player.

Pre-registered players can receive various in-game items, including the 4 star Banshee or in-game coins that can be used for lottery draws and replenishing stamina. Additional rewards will be added as more players sign up.
To get involved head over to Guardian Codex’s official website. In addition, players who like or follow the official Guardian Codex Facebook or Twitter pages will be automatically pre-registered for the game.
We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. 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! 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.
