If you’re a fan of Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy Tactics, here’s some news that may interest you. Yasumi Matsuno, one of the people behind those games, has revealed a new project he’s working on.
The name of this new project is Unsung Story, and it will be a multi-game series for mobile platforms. The first game will be a Final Fantasy Tactics-like strategy game entitled Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians. It will be set in a fantasy world called Rasfalia, where you represent one of many small kingdoms that have emerged in the land. You fight against monsters as you try to decipher the meanings of a war that has lasted for 50 years.
To bring this new project to light, Matsuno has teamed up with Playdek, a U.S.-based company that brings tabletop games to tablets and smartphones.
Matsuno’s other credits as director include Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen, Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together and Final Fantasy XII. He also served as producer of Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.
There is no timetable for a release as of yet, however, a card game is currently in development. It will be set in the same universe, and serve as a prequel to Unsung Story.
Let us know what you think in the comments.
