First reported on Touch Arcade, the official release date for Sin Chronicle has been announced - Japanese fans of the game will soon be able to play the "true RPG" on their iOS and Android devices on March 23rd. SEGA's highly anticipated title will supposedly feature important decision-making nodes where players' choices will have lasting consequences throughout the narrative.

While there's no official word yet as to the exact date of the global release, Sin Chronicle does look promising given its production value. It boasts a musical score crafted by Kevin Penkin of Star Wars Visions and Florence fame, as well as a host of talented guest composers such as Final Fantasy's Masashi Hamauzu, Chrono Trigger's Yasunori Mitsuda, Streets of Rage's Yuzo Koshiro and more.

The game also boasts a vast open world that players can explore to their hearts' delight, along with action-packed hack-and-slash combat and an intriguing story. It does seem like it has a gacha system for characters, but what makes the summons pool more interesting is that characters will have interactions with one another once recruited.
