Fantasian PC Port & Sequel Are Possible Says Producer Sakaguchi

IGN Japan recently shared notable news regarding the Apple Arcade-exclusive Mistwalker-developed JRPG, Fantasian, revealing that the game may see a port to PC and perhaps even a sequel. However, nothing is definite at the moment.

Our team’s Ryuji translated the following sentences from the IGN writer discussing these points:

“Many people have asked us to release the game on PC as well, and some have asked if there is a sequel, so we would like to work as hard as we can still,” said Sakaguchi, stating that he hopes to meet those expectations.

Based on his comments, it might feel that a sequel might happen, but he only said that “nothing is definite right now.”

So, while it’s not yet confirmed, fan demand may cause this veiled classic to reach a broader audience. We sure hope so, at least.

We’ll be sure to keep you all updated on any developments regarding Fantasian seeing a port.

Fantasian is set in a world governed by machines where the balance of Chaos and Order is the crucial factor in the struggle within this multi-dimensional universe. Players will take on the role of Leo, who has awakened after an explosion without his memory and facing a strange land. The journey begins to reclaim Leo’s memories as players uncover the truth behind a peculiar mechanical infection consuming mankind.

The story is written by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi with music by Nobuo Uematsu.

The battle system uses a “Dimengeon Battle” mechanic, allowing players to send previously encountered enemies into a separate dimensional dungeon to streamline combat and maximize uninterrupted exploration of the beautiful locations.

Players will explore dioramas with over 150 different types. Creating Fantasian’s real-life miniature sets are veterans who have worked on projects like the Godzilla films, Attack on Titan and Ultraman. In addition, Fantasian serves as a vehicle to bring these works of art into the digital space via Apple Arcade.
