Guardian Codex

A mobile RPG with turn-based combat system, developed by an in-house studio of Square Enix. Guardian Codex takes place in the year 2030. The planet was split by a conflict between the Empire and the Resistance. When the second faction is pushed to defense, it decides to use a different tactic and sends their agents to the titular Codex, a virtual version of old times. The player that assumes the role of one of such agents is tasked with finding the legendary creatures known as Guardians and taking them to real world where they can be used against the Empire. The mechanics of the game are typical for classic Japanese RPGs in which the player is exploring, completing quests, speaking with other characters and fighting the enemies in a turn-based system. The combat is important since defeating the Guardians enables the player to make them join his party and the gameplay is focused mostly on collecting and developing them.
