Chrono Ma:gia has launched on Android in North America, Australia, and Japan. The competitive card game, similar to the likes of Hearthstone and Elder Scrolls: Legends, was developed by the team behind Puzzle & Dragons — the first-ever mobile game to generate $1 billion revenue.
Like Puzzle & Dragons, this is another manga-filled title with tons going on. It features AI opponents as well as online multiplayer so you can battle against others around the world. Its Play Store description boasts about the number of skills and strategies available, but I also suspect a wealth of in-app purchases.
It also features pop-up models of the creatures seen on the cards, which is a nice touch that man digital card games are missing. It also adds to the overall feeling of being in a Yu-Gi-Oh! cartoon. If that ain’t enough, it boasts an “all-star” voice cast including Ayane Sakura and Kentaro Tone!
You can download it from Google Play now and it’s currently sitting on 2.5 stars due to a number of negative reviews, many of them regarding the apparent request for users social security numbers.
However, the company has stated on Twitter that it doesn’t ask for social security details and I haven’t encountered any such request (but please do get in touch if you have) — it only asks for a username, which I entered as “Mr Donuts,” without issue.
Nonetheless, I’ve reached out to the company to inquire specifically about the social security number issue and will update this article should I receive a response.
It’s great to see people take such an active interest in privacy — now certainly is the time — and if you still have concerns, please don’t install this app and read all privacy policies carefully.
