The first part of Fantasian, the latest RPG from Mistwalker and Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi, is now available on Apple Arcade. It’s playable on Mac, iOS and tvOS with the part offering 20 to 30 hours of gameplay. The second part is out later this year and adds another 20 to 30 hours. English and Japanese voice options are both available.
Set in a multi-dimensional universe, Fantasian focuses on Leo, who awakens in a mysterious land with only a single memory. A strange “mechanical” infection is taking over the world and along with learning more about it, the player will also set about to recover Leo’s memories. In the backdrop, gods are scheming and the balance of Chaos and Order is at stake.
The main calling card of Fantasian is its hand-crafted environments which utilize over 150 real-life dioramas. The battle system is also unique, letting players send previous foes into a separate dimension, while the soundtrack is composed by the legendary Nobuo Uematsu. Considering this may be Sakaguchi’s final project, it should be interesting to see how Fantasian pans out. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
