Away: Shuffle Dungeon is apparently that project, with character design by Sakaguchi and music composed by Final Fantasy legend Nobuo Uematsu. Unsurprisingly, it's an RPG; specifically, it's an action-RPG starring a brash young hero named Sword. (The name is meant to evoke a sort of back-to-basics approach, similar to the original Dragon Warrior or Final Fantasy, where the hero's name would be Hero.)"
