May 15, 2014 - Tokyo, Japan

HyperDevbox announces that the massively popular tactical role-playing game (RPG) for home video game consoles, Record of Agarest War, is now available on iOS.

Already released on Playstation Platform (PS3), Microsoft Platform (Xbox360) and Android, Record of Agarest War, originally designed by Tokyo studio Idea Factory, is now available on the App Store for all iOS users. 

"We are extremely excited to bring yet another premium full video console game to mobile devices," says HyperDevbox founder and CEO Carlo Perconti. "After our successful launch of Spectral Souls and Blazing Souls Accelate for iOS users worldwide, we are confident that Record of Agarest War, one of the most profound and exciting game series in the genre, will satisfy the thirst of J-RPG fans at home or on the go.” "Thanks to our technology, we were able to optimize the original 6GB game data into 1.9 GB for mobile devices," says Perconti. "However, I want to emphasize that the iOS version is not a reduced/mobile version of the original, but retains the multimedia-rich game in its entirety, including all the original downloadable contents.” 

About Record of Agarest War:

It was the end of the age of gods... An age that ended when the door to oblivion was opened. There were five continents in the world of Agarest, each one pierced by a great pillar that towered toward the sky. These soaring monuments were the gods themselves. The beginning of our story and the end of the age of myth find their start on the continent of Lucrellia when a young man named Leonhardt sacrifices everything, even his future and his children, to protect an elven girl. At death's door, he pledges himself to a contract... 

This is the final tale of the gods; a story woven in souls across generations...
