As a follow-up to their original post on the Chain Chronicle Global Facebook page, goGame have now launched a petition to bring back Chain Chronicle in the West. Before signing the petition, fans are also asked to like goGames Facebook page.
A few years ago, SEGA and Gumi announced a partnership to bring SEGA’s mobile games to the West, beginning with SEGA’s biggest mobile hit in Japan: Chain Chronicle. Unfortunately, things apparently didn’t work out between the two companies, and Gumi ended up shutting down Chain Chronicle on Feburary 29th, 2016. A fan petition was created to try and save the game, but seemingly to no avail. At least until now, as the long abandoned official Facebook page for the game suddenly showed a sign of life with a new message from the game’s mascot, Pirika:
Funimation and Crunchyroll have announced a SimulDub/Simulcast for Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas, an anime based on Sega’s popular mobile franchise Chain Chronicle. The release consists of three theatrical films and a televised anime. Crunchyroll will stream the first movie (with English subtitles) on December 16th at 11AM PST for premium users of the Crunchyroll service worldwide (excluding Asia). Movies 2 and 3 will air on the service in January and February respectfully. Funimation will provide an English dub on their own streaming service shortly after the airing of the movie.
The PlayStation Vita version of Chain Chronicle, titled Chain Chronicle V, has received a collaboration event with the Valkyria Chronicles franchise. The event is scheduled to run from December 1 to December 14. The mobile version of the game also received this crossover earlier this year, featuring the same character art. You can view all the character cards that can be unlocked during the event below. While it features the major characters from Valkyria Chronicles and Valkyria Chronicles 3, Juliana is the only character from Valkyria Chronicles 2. The official webpage for the event can be found here.
Ahead of the release in theaters in Japan, SEGA have uploaded the first 7 minutes of the first part of Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas, the new anime based on the popular mobile franchise from SEGA, on their YouTube channel. Evidently that means it will contains spoilers. The first part also includes a somewhat disturbing scene involving one of the game’s main characters. You can watch it below.
Spoiler warning: the videos and images below may spoil certain aspects of Puella Magi Madoka Magica the Movie: Rebellion.
SEGA of Japan have aired a trailer for the collaboration between the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica (more specifically the movie Rebellion) and their mobile RPG Chain Chronicle. At the same time SEGA have also launched a new website for the collaboration, as well as a Twitter campaign, asking people to retweet one of SEGA’s tweets 5000 times to earn an SR card of the character Homura (a goal that has already been reached). You can find the trailer (which doesn’t feature any game footage) below, but do note that it might spoil some aspects of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica TV anime series.
Sadly this collaboration, much like the one for Sakura Wars, won’t reach the West as the English version of the game has been discontinued by gumi.
SEGA has released another trailer for Chain Chronicle: The Light of Haecceitas, an anime based on their hit mobile game Chain Chronicle. The first three parts of the anime will be screened at theaters around Japan. The first part will be screened on December 3, the second one on January 14, followed by the third and last part on February 11. They’ll then be followed by a full TV anime series. You can view the trailer below! As big as the franchise is in Japan, the mobile game has been discontinued in the West where it was handled by gumi. At this point, it seems unlikely it’ll make a return there.
SEGA Networks recently announced another round of content for the Sakura Wars X Chain Chronicle collaboration event. Formally announced a little more than a month ago, the collaboration takes the popular SEGA mobile game Chain Chronicle and features the Imperial Assault Force characters from Sakura Wars.
The news post linked at the top of this article describes which characters will receive SSR or SR cards. The list will be reproduced as follows:
SEGA of Japan have announced a new mobile game in their “Chain” series (which includes their highly successful Chain Chronicle game), called World Chain. This time the game features high school students in the modern world. The protagonist of the game wakes up in a university to find that history has been altered and some people have disappeared. Using a smartphone called “Chain Driver”, the protagonist can journey through time and assume to role of a “Rewriter” who changes history. In doing so, the protagonist will encounter and form a bond with heroes from different timelines, and use their help in battle.
