Mistwalker teaser art combined

Hironobu Sakaguchi, the creator of the Final Fantasy series and the founder of The Last Story developer Mistwalker, showed off some concept art during a master class in creative media at Hawaii’s UH West O‘ahu Library. The artwork is for an unannounced game, and is drawn by The Last Story character designer Kimihiko Fujisaka.

Twitter user @VoltySquirrel was present at the event, and tweeted out some information as Sakaguchi revealed it. The series of five tweets can be found below:

Someone at the event also recorded the talk on video and posted it to YouTube. The video can be found below:

Mistwalker is known for Xbox 360 games Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey, the aforementioned The Last Story on Wii (one of the original games for which oprainfall was started), and their most recent game, the free-to-play Terra Battle on smartphones.

    WOOT

  • Mistwalker announced that there would be a console version of Terra Battle if the game was downloaded more than 2,000,000 times. Perhaps this unannounced game IS this console version.

    I’m really excited to hear that Hironobu Sakaguchi is continuing to pursue games with a larger scope. I was worried that, with the tepid success of his console games with Mistwalker, he had lost the ambition for creating epics. It’s possible that this game could be either mobile or console, but just the fact that it’s a concept that appears larger than a free-to-play mobile experience is enough for me.

    I want to see one of my childhood favorites strike a success on console. Doing so would mean no more single platform exclusives. The game should launch, as a minimum, on both PS4 and Xbox One. Of course, that isn’t always how it works out, as Mistwalker is not an actual developer, and they will most likely be at the mercy of a publisher’s whims. Here’s to hoping that Mistwalker can strike a good deal.
