Chaos Rings III is the fourth game in Chaos Rings series. It offers entirely new characters, a new game world, and a new story. The game does not have a direct link to other games in series. Many game mechanics are changed. The game tells the story of a boy who became an explorer to unravel the mysteries of the planet Marble Blue and wants to find out what happened to his father. In addition to the story mode, there is now also an arena mode where players can fight different sets of monsters for rewards. The arena has seasons and events tied to the real world calendar.
Like previous games in there series, Chaos Rings III allow you to have three active characters characters in parties. Many other game mechanics were completely changed, but the combat is still turn-based. Players no longer have the option to perform pair attacks. They are performed automatically if characters have similar speed indicators. The gene system was also heavily changed and characters are no longer able to equip separate genes. Genes now come as class cards and each card has a unique combination of skill and abilities. Characters can equip only one card at time. The game has a complex synthesis system for genes that allows for the creation of new gene cards.
