According to the designer, the second part of the latest Fantasian RPG from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi is almost complete.
Fantasian was released on Apple Arcade in April and was generally received by critics, but Sakaguchi has always made it clear that this is the first part of a two-part adventure.
Sakaguchi tweeted a short message that the development of the game is almost complete.
It simply says, “The second part of Fantasian is almost done.”
Sakaguchi then sent a more detailed statement to: Famitsu, with a message for fans of the game.
“This is Sakaguchi. The second part of Fantasian is almost over, ”he said. “This part is twice the size of the first, which exceeded our expectations. The boss monsters are also unique and challenging.
“I would like to thank all the development staff, dioramas and all the sound engineers, including Mr. Uematsu. They gave their best. I think this is a great game! “
Developed by Mistwalker, Fantasian is exclusive to Apple’s subscription service. In it, Sakaguchi returns to traditional turn-based RPG gameplay for the first time since 2007’s Lost Odyssey on the Xbox 360. It also features a new soundtrack from legendary Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu.
The game’s environments are real-life dioramas created by Japanese artists who have worked on tokusatsu (special effects) films, including Godzilla, Attack on Titan, and Ultraman. These dioramas were then scanned and turned into a game environment, resulting in a realistic background.
Sakaguchi told VGC in a recent interview that Fantasian could be its final product.
Speaking with us in March, the veteran designer looked to previous comments he made about his longtime co-creator Nobuo Uematsu, who he says likely completed his last full soundtrack with Fantasian due to unspecified health concerns.
