Aiming to gather information about his missing teacher, Teth, and Geppel, who is trying to get his hands on the Fragments, Loka decides to set out on a journey with his friend Sarna. The game features familiar quests, but also dungeons filled with puzzles to solve, and characters who grow and can be developed as the story progresses with the class change system.

Buried deep within Chronus Arc are some neat new ideas mixed with a well-meaning tribute to one of the genre's golden ages, but there's so much that serves to spoil the enjoyment of its well-crafted elements that it's very difficult to recommend to all but the most devout.
Chronus Arc serves well as an accessible, introductory start to the genre, although never builds enough of an identity to let it stand apart from the more well-established competition in the Nintendo 3DS library.
Chronus Arc is competent RPG that fails to deliver on one of the most important aspects of the genre: the story. It delivers an uninspiring narrative, coupled with a forgettable soundtrack and fast travel and escape mechanics that, while solid, rob the game of any sense of difficulty. If you're looking purely for old-school RPG mechanics, you may have some fun with Chronus Arc. Otherwise, you may want to look to another one of the many great RPGs the 3DS has to offer.
