Fantasian Focuses on Music, Gets Two-Part Release
Mistwalker released some new videos focusing on the music for its upcoming turn-based RPG title Fantasian. The game’s music is composed by long-time Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu, who takes part in a new interview and features in behind-the-scenes recording footage for one of the game’s tracks. There is also a collection of illustrations for the game set to a piano solo.
In addition, Famitsu provided plenty of new details about the game and its story, as well as some new screenshots and artwork. Fantasian will be released in two parts for iOS and Mac. An exact release date for the first part has not been revealed but is expected “soon”, while the second part is planned to launch in the second half of 2021. The first part is stated to contain around 20-30 hours of gameplay. The game will also contain events similar to the “Thousand Years of Dreams” in Mistwalker’s past title Lost Odyssey, which can be re-watched at a later time.
Fantasian’s story concerns white spheres known as Death Balls attempting to cover the world. Any who get close enough effectively have their minds absorbed, losing all emotion in the process. A god named Vam also plays an important role in the game. Main protagonist Leo has lost his memories and is looking for his missing father Bernard, conducting his search in the dangerous zones around the Death Balls.
