Back when Apple Arcade was finally revealed, Fantasian from Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi and Mistwalker was revealed for the service. Hironobu Sakaguchi was even featured in the “Meet the Creators” trailer for the service. Fantasian has been in development for three years now and is nearing completion as revealed by Mistwalker. Over the years since the game was officially announced, we’ve seen some dioramas that the team is creating for use in the game with 3D characters alongside some more artwork. As of now, we are yet to see a full gameplay trailer for Fantasian but considering it is targetting this year for release, we should see something soon. Today, Hironobu Sakaguchi just tweeted a new in development screenshot of the game. Check it out below showcasing the interface during exploration (alongside the development fps counter on the top left):
I know quite a few people who signed up for the service for Fantasian but have long cancelled the subscriptions while waiting despite many great games being added since launch. I’ve been enjoying most of the new games on the service but I’m definitely very excited to see what Mistwalker brings out with Fantasian this year. Hopefully the 2021 target is met. Until then, head over to our Fantasian forum thread for more discussion. For all other Apple Arcade related things, check out our dedicated Apple Arcade forum for discussion on the service and every game included here. Have you played Mistwalker’s games like Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Terra Battle, or The Last Story yet and what are you expecting from Fantasian?
