Hironobu Sakaguchi has shown interest in porting the RPG Fantasy are PC, and to make one sequel.
In fact, IGN Japan reports that Sakaguchi was present at the festival Magic 2023 of Munich, where he participated in a question and answer session about his career. When asked about Fantasian, (released in April 2021 and currently still exclusive to Apple Arcade), if it would be available on other platforms, Sakaguchi has shown interest in at least the PC port.
“We have received many requests to release the game on PC as welland there have also been calls for a sequel“, replied Sakaguchi, “so we would like to continue working as much as possible to meet their expectations“.
We will therefore see if in the future there will be implications for these words, crossing our fingers.
Developed by the studio Mistwalker by Sakaguchi, Fantasian sees the creator of Final Fantasy returning to a traditional turn-based RPG for the first time since 2007’s Lost Odyssey on Xbox 360.
The game, published in two chapters, also has the soundtrack composed by Nobuo Uematsu (also famous above all for his work with Final Fantasy).
The game’s most unique feature is its art style – the game’s environments are all dioramas created by Japanese artists who worked on “tokusatsu” (special effects) films such as the Godzilla, Attack on Titan and Ultraman films. These dioramas were then scanned and transformed into game environments, resulting in realistic backgrounds.
