The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross has already won over the world of anime, and now it’s going to be tackling the world of mobile gaming.
While we were in New York City for Toy Fair 2020, we also had a chance to meet up with NetMarble and get a demo of the Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross.
We’ll say off the top that the game is gorgeous. From cut scenes to battles, The Seven Deadly Sins looks as though you’re playing a fully animated series. Add in the fact you’re playing on something like an iPad, and it’s just mind-boggling how good this looks.
As to the gameplay, it’s a turn-based JRPG that appears simple on the surface, but it looks like it gets more complicated the deeper you go. From multiple rarities of characters to other variables, it’s going to take work to master this title.
There’s a lot of support planned for the title with different events, so expect to be challenged month after month.
The Seven Deadly Sins: Grand Cross is a free-to-play title meaning you have nothing to lose by giving it a shot, and you may just run into us putting in some time as well.
