'Cosmos Rings' is the name of a new RPG game that's set to be launched by Square Enix. What's particularly intriguing about this game is that it is being announced for the Apple Watch—and its small screen, which is barely more than a few inches all around.

Gameplay will make use of the Apple Watch's Digital Crown and the internal pedometer in order to play with the concept of time. Along their RPG adventure, players will receive messages based on how many steps they've taken.

When smartwatches first hit the mainstream, many consumers were quite vocal about how skeptical they were about the devices, particularly because of the limited screen size. Cosmos Rings effectively transforms the Apple Watch into a portable gaming console, appealing to fans of Square Enix in an entirely new way.
