Widely lauded as a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy, Fantasian boasts plenty of the traditional look and feel often associated with the popular title.
Players take the role of Leo, who wakes in a strange land with only a lone memory for company. To restore the rest, he and his friends will have to solve the mystery of a strange mechanical infection slowly spreading all over the world – a story written by Sakaguchi and scored by Final Fantasy legend Nobuo Uematsu.
Fans can expect to find the classic JRPG style gameplay, which follows RPG convention with party characters lined up on one side of the screen taking turns attacking monsters on the other.
It does however have a very unique ‘battle delay’ system for dealing with monsters.
Players are able to turn on the ‘Dimengeon System,’ which collects encountered enemies in a so-called dimengeon (dungeon dimension) which players can dive into to fight them all at once.
The game is expected to be released in May 2021, and will be an Apple Arcade exclusive, playable only on iPhones, iPads, Macs, and Apple TVs.
