With its Eyvind Earle-like art style, charming characters, and fascinating (and fun) time-traveling battle mechanics,  Cris Tales has been on plenty of gaming wishlists – mine included – since 2019. While its planned release date of November 17th, 2020 slipped into “early 2021” and then July 2021, we can now say for certain when Crisbell’s tale is ready. 

Featured in today’s Indie World Showcase, Cris Tales will be releasing on July 20th.


Cris Tales is an era-bending RPG created by Colombian developer Dreams Uncorporated where past, present and future are brought together on one screen. Players can use Crisbell’s amazing ability to slip between time periods to both aid citizens across Crystallis’ kingdoms and perform surprise attacks on enemies. If Crisbell wants to save her magical world from the evil that threatens it, she must make use of her power to shape the past, present and future while gathering allies that will help her in her quest.


Standard and Collector’s Editions of the game are available to pre-order. In the lead-up to its release, Modus Games has also shared a character trailer and hosted a voice actor panel.

While we can’t time travel, Cris Tales’ timeless adventure will be here soon enough and to ease the wait you can try out the game now via a free demo on the Nintendo eShop
