Today Mistwalker released two new trailers of its upcoming JRPG Fantasian by the father of Final Fantasy Hironobu Sakaguchi.
Not only mobile but apple arcade exclusive. We need a proper game from them.
I have given up, honestly. They didn't mind breaking the promise about a Terra Battle console game, so at this point I don't think they care.
I wish Sony would buy these guys and stop them doing mobile games Create something like Lost Odyssey and they have another winner on their hands.
"Create something like Lost Odyssey" it's still complicated to say the least. as much as any gamer that would love to see a next gen project happen. but also considering Hironobu is also notorious for over production budgets. this is what has me thinking why Hironobu has yet to make a large scale project in over a decade. his large scale projects needs to see big returns otherwise it'll be the 4th project that has gone into over production.
Just seems like such a waste making a phone game. Especially when it's someone as highly renowned in the gaming industry as Hironobu. I mean, I get it... It's all about the money they'll be raking it in with casual phone gamers. Just wasted potential though when you don't develop it for consoles/PC. I don't care if they port it, it's still going to be limited all to hell because it was originally created for phones.
Phone gaming has overtaken consoles in Japan. That's why he's doing it that way, and that's likely the way it'll stay. It sucks, but there are ways to play these phone games on a PC.
@forkymental - I know it's because phone games dominate Japan. I also know I can emulate them through iOS or Android emulators on my PC as well. But once again, my point is that it's still just a phone game. When it could have been so much more if it was developed with a console or a PC in mind.
"I wish Sony would buy these guys and stop them doing mobile games" lets also not forget sony and hironobu's long existing creative differences, budgets and crunching. not sure if he's willing to return to his old position.
It was Ken Kutaragi who was the issue and he’s long gone now
I wish The Gooch would make console games again like Final Fantasy or The Last Story.
Apple Arcade? uuuuuugh lol Are you being serious?
