Final Fantasy Tactics creator announces new project
Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy Tactics creator announces new series, Unsung Story; first game will be a tabletop-like card game for mobile devices.
The first game will be a tabletop-like card game with mechanics designed by Christophe Boelinger, with Yasumi directing the world and story design. Following this, a Tactics-style strategy game designed by Matsuno, Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians, will act as the follow-up, fleshing out the story introduced in the card game.
The world of Unsung Story is set in the fictional kingdom of Rasfalia, inspired by events that took place in Western Europe after the fall of the Roman Empire around the fifth century. The medieval fantasy world features traditional archetypes such as knights, wizards, archers, and magical creatures entangled in a bloody war between numerous fiefdoms fueled by religious conflict.
The Unsung Story card game is currently slated for release sometime in 2014, but there is currently no release date attached to Matsuno's tactics-based strategy game. The title will be released on as-yet unspecified mobile platforms.
