“I could not be more excited for the release of FANTASIAN Part One,” Hironobu Sakaguchi states. “Players will find themselves immersed in this uniquely traditional RPG with a handcrafted touch around every corner. The development team has poured their soul into this project and that shows on the other side of the screen. We hope you will all join us on this uplifting journey.”
If you aren’t familiar with the game’s premise, just check out the blurb below:
FANTASIAN by Mistwalker Corp. — FANTASIAN is a new RPG set against a spectacular backdrop made from over 150 handcrafted dioramas that blends physical environments and 3D characters.
The tale begins in a realm governed by machines. Players will assume the role of the game’s protagonist, Leo, who awakens from a massive explosion to find himself lost in this strange land with only one memory left to guide him. As players set out on a journey to reclaim Leo’s memories, they will unravel the mysteries of the bizarre mechanical infection slowly engulfing all that is known to mankind and explore a multi-dimensional universe where the balance of “Chaos and Order” becomes a key factor in the machinations of the gods who wish to control it.
The captivating story written by Sakaguchi is complimented by a sweeping soundtrack from celebrated Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu.
When the names Sakaguchi and Uematsu are mentioned together, great things are possible. You can check out the trailer for Fantasian below. And be sure to stay tuned to HPP for more Mistwalker news as it hits.
