Mistwalker launched the story trailer for their newest RPG Fantasian, in development for Apple Arcade for a 2021 release.
Fantasian is set in a world governed by machines where the balance of Chaos and Order is the key 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 strange mechanical infection that is 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, which allows 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. Fantasian serves as a vehicle to bring these works of art into the digital space via Apple Arcade.
One thing is for sure, Fantasian makes me want to subscribe to Apple Arcade, which I haven’t cared about until now. The service is Apple’s attempt at getting players locked into a monthly subscription where they can play several exclusive titles. However, many of those titles are now making their way to PC and consoles.
