DRAKERIDER Chains Transcendent for iPad


Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Kill or be killed... Answer the call of high adventure and deliver the world from destruction together with your ferocious dragon companion! The new, upgraded version of the mobile role-playing game DRAKERIDER is here!

*Major Changes* 

- Enemy stats have undergone further balancing.
- An On/Off toggle has been added for enemy encounters.
- A number of voiced cutscenes have been rendered into real-time movies.


The stage of DRAKERIDER is set in Igraine, a world on the brink of destruction due to the repeated attacks of the Dread. Aran Lawson, once an ordinary tracker, now finds himself as a dragalier—and mankind's final hope. This is the story of our hero and his dragon companion, Eckhardt.

The game lets you take the reins with a battle system like no other. Instead of entering commands, control the chains to execute your strategy. Easing off the reins will allow Eckhardt the freedom to unleash powerful attacks. Too much leeway, however, will trigger his primal instincts, endangering Aran.
Led by Akifumi Kaneko, the game is developed by WITCHCRAFT Inc., famous for their work on various anime and other RPGs. This title maintains the high quality and integrity for which they are known.

The characters are voiced by an array of talented artists, including Ryohei Kimura, Nana Mizuki, Shinichiro Miki, Kana Hanazawa, Keiji Fujiwara, and many others. The powerful theme song "unleash," performed by Shoujyo Byou, accentuates the powerful storyline and intense battles.

*Game System *

● The battle is in your hands
Tighten or loosen your grip on the reins by sliding the chains at the bottom of the screen. The gauge at the top of the screen represents its tension. Ease off to unleash powerful attacks and abilities, but give your dragon too much freedom and you will lose control. If you're not quick to pull back the reins, he will turn against you.

● Develop your dragon's abilities
Claim victory in battle to earn CP, which you can use to learn abilities and powerful attacks. Unlocking some abilities will close your path to others, so plan carefully and customize your dragon to suit your needs.

Unbelievably fun game

This game was so fun there's just not enough words I can use to describe it I had so much fun with this game it's totally worth it totally worth the price and you won't regret it I promise that Also I hope to see DrakeRider 2 for the love of God please make a second

One of Sq'nix's Little Victories

The combat is essentially a JRPG battle set to automatic with a real-time slider mechanic to dictate stance.
I thought it was a great way to refresh the (fond) battle-grinding memories of old.

The story is okay, kind of around the same calibre as Chaos Rings.

I bought it again (I had the old iPhone version). Glad I did. I'm sure not everyone will agree to paying for a new version at such a price-point. But if you haven't bought it and want a newer FF title: Recommended.

Great game

The game is really awesome. Worth the money and I really like the characters.
