Named Fantasian, the new RPG is developed by Japan’s famed Mistwalker, a studio founded by Sakaguchi which went on to produce The Last Story as well as the Blue Dragon series. Tapping into the usual JRPG themes of fantasy, magic, and spell-casting, and dramatic foes, the new game features more than 150 different level designs handcrafted by artists within the “Tokusatsu” film industry, which encompasses titles such as Attack on Titan, Ultraman, and Godzilla.
Combat will be turn-based, but a new mechanic known as the “dimengeon” allows you to bank various enemies you encounter in a different dimension which you can then revisit at a later time and fight against in sequence, giving you more flexibility when you’re focusing on exploring the map.
Unfortunately, there’s no release date just yet for Fantasian, but it’s due for an exclusive release on Apple Arcade. Fans of Sakaguchi should definitely stay tuned for more updates to come.
Elsewhere in gaming, EA has delayed the next Need for Speed in order to focus on an upcoming Battlefield.
