'Pure Chess' (ALL) Gets 3DS/Wii U Release Date

Experience the game of chess like you’ve never seen it before with Pure Chess. See how stunning and beautiful chess can really be, and find out if you are a Grandmaster in the making.

Pure Chess aims to reflect the beauty and depth of the widely respected game. Chess is one of the world’s most played, popular and recognized games and to reflect this, Pure Chess was developed with the aid of a chess Grandmaster, the highest title a chess player can attain. The game aims to appeal to a wide audience with various tutorials to allow beginners to take part, improve their chess skills and become a Grandmaster in their own right.

The game took a little longer than anticipated as Phil Gaskell, Creative Director of Ripstone, explains: “Cross-platform play was a feature we all wanted to see in the game, but we underestimated the effort & technicalities involved with getting it right. We think the delay has been worth it, and can’t wait for players on all different devices to begin issuing challenges.”

Pure Chess (£4.99/€5.99/$7.99) supports the cross-platform play feature, meaning fans can now play against their friends on Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, iPad, iPhone, iPod and Android devices.
