The official YouTube channel for the recently kickstarted Wild Arms spiritual successor, Armed Fantasia, has shared a new video interview with one of the game’s composers, Noriyasu Agematsu.
This rather dense video consists of Agematsu answering various specific questions pertaining to the game’s staff, music composition details, and trivia regarding the project’s lead game designer, Akifumi Kaneko.
You can view the full, roughly 10-minute English-subtitled interview with Noriyasu Agematsu below:
Taking place in the land of Londenium, the protagonist, Ingram, decides to leave his hometown after his grandfather passes away. He then becomes a Pathfinder, a profession utilizing ARM (Aether Reaction Maximizer) weaponry to rid the world of Anomalies.
Throughout this Westernpunk wilderness, Ingram will make many allies and enemies involved in a battle that will bring Londenium’s past and future to light. Two of his party members are named Euclid Sturges and Alicia Fairhead.
Players can look forward to a “large-scale party-based JRPG adventure,” where an enormous World Map housing puzzles, sea and air navigation with vehicles, and racing with genuine momentum is present. Dungeon exploration will have party members use their Gadgets, which prevail against obstacles in unique ways.
Combat will be turn-based, using the Cross Order Tactics system. “Successive character actions play a key role in the Chain Order, and disruptive Force Breaks interrupt enemy turn order,” so a vast degree of strategy is strongly emphasized.
