Windows Phone 8 gets its first Strategy RPG
Tokyo, Japan (MMD Newswire) March 11, 2013 -- Noted game developer HyperDevbox is has released its flagship tactical role-playing game (RPG) "Spectral Souls," to the Windows Phone 8 platform. Introduced to the Windows 8 and RT platforms last year,this popular game is now available to users of Windows Phone 8. Spectral Souls is an original console game designed by Tokyo studio Idea Factory and ported by HyperDevbox on different mobile platforms.

"We're very excited about this launch," says HyperDevBox founder and CEO Carlo Perconti. "By porting 'Spectral Souls' to theWindows Phone 8 platform, we believe we will meet Windows Phone 8 users' expectations and expand our target audience"

"Spectral Souls" is a long and deep tactical RPG game, which, Perconti notes, is a genre that is under-represented on Windows Phone 8platform. "Being a console-quality game, its size, which is about 1GB, makes it one of the largest applications of its genre on this platform," he says.

 

To date, Spectral Souls is the firstand only tactical RPG to bewritten natively for Windows Phone 8. Users cannow download, install, and enjoy"Spectral Souls" on any currently available Windows Phone 8devices."We will reach new customers and bring the Japanese Tactical RPG game to Windows Phone 8 users" says Perconti.

"Spectral Souls" was the first game of its genre on the smartphone market, according to Perconti. It is an epic good-versus-evil fantasy with an intricate story but plenty of action, and spectacular music to add to the experience. The focus of the tale is the Seven-Year War between humans and demons, taking place in Magic Age 1053 on Neverland, "a world apart from our own, home to strange and dangerous creatures." The game was designed to appeal to all fans of fast-moving tactical RPGs, especially those who want to take their portable gaming experience to new levels.

"We wanted to bring the 'Spectral Souls' experience to Windows Phone 8 users,who can now enjoy a high quality game anywhere they take their Windows Phone 8 device" says Perconti. If HyperDevbox's recent history is any indication, this latest release from the small but accomplished gaming studio is positioned to be the next "must-have" RPG for users of Windows Phone 8 devices everywhere.

* 1 GB of data for 100 hours of game play
