GREE Enlists Square Enix Vets for Saga of Fantasm: A

This new free-to-play RPG has a random letter on the end and a bit of Square Enix talent behind it.

News by Mike Williams, .

Back in September of 2012 at the Tokyo Game Show, GREE announced Project Fantasm: A, its first big-budget social RPG for Android and iOS. Today, the publisher is allowing Japanese users to pre-register for the free-to-play 3D RPG, now called Saga of Fantasm: A.

Very little is known about the game, but the development is being headed up by a couple of Square Enix veterans. Final Fantasy X and XIII battle director Toshiro Tsuchida is the game's creative director, Dissidia: Final Fantasy supervising director Takeshi Arakawa is the game's producer. Last, but not least, classic Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu is composing music for Saga of Fantasm. The game's executive producer is GREE senior vice president of media business Taisei Yoshida.

Hey, I've been waiting for a new Star Ocean...

GREE has released a new trailer that's largely the same as the original Tokyo Game Show 2012 teaser. With the talent behind the game, it's unsurprising that the trailer has a strong Final Fantasy/Star Ocean vibe to it. The game looks to be card-based, even in-universe. The publisher also released a few screenshots of the game, shown below. The last screenshot shows art from a card that players receive when they pre-register for the game. No word on a North America release has been given.

    That could have been a video for almost any JRPG.

    Going on GREE's past track record, it will probably look pretty and have absolutely no substance to it whatsoever. The company makes some of the most vapid, shallow, awful mobile games I've ever had the misfortune to encounter.

    I'm open to being surprised, but I won't hold my breath.
