Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has shared some new details on his upcoming game, Fantasian, and confirmed it will arrive in 2021.
Fantasian is a brand new RPG from Mistwalker, which was founded by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi. It will feature music from Nobuo Uematsu. In a newsletter, the developer has shared more details on this new RPG.
Hironobu Sakaguchi, Mistwalker
A happy new year!
FANTASIAN, the game we have been developing over the last three years is almost complete and is scheduled to be released on Apple Arcade this year.
The game is an RPG that takes players through a unique world handcrafted dioramas by professional sculptors featuring: music by Mr. Uematsu, an open-world scenario in the latter half of the game, a user interface designed specifically for touch panels (also compatible with controllers), and a unique set of characters.
Furthermore, a new system called the “Dimengeon” allows players to fight all the enemies at once instead of battling small mobs as they encounter them.
The game can be played on iPhone, iPad, mac, and AppleTV, and save data is shared across all devices. We are confident this will provide an intriguing experience as players can switch between mobile and desktop devices.
I hope you will all enjoy it!
Mr. Nobuo Uematsu, Dog Ear Records
A happy new year!
As I went into the music production of FANTASIAN,
I was ready to spend the most time and effort I had ever spent on a single game. Having that much passion and dedication led to more diverse music, which made me realize, “I never knew I could do something like this.”
Whether it was Mr. Sakaguchi’s passion for the game or it was “fate,” I was able give everything I could to FANTASIAN.
Please look forward to it.
In a tweet, Sakaguchi confirmed that the game will launch in 2021 for Apple Arcade.
