Yasumi Matsuno (Vagrant Story, FINAL FANTASY Tactics, FINAL FANTASY XII) has turned to Kickstarter to create a brand new Tactical RPG. Following the popular and recent trend of turning to crowdfunding to create spiritual sequels to your previous work.
As a big fan of Matsuno, I backed this in a second. But I wouldn’t blame you for wanting to hear more about what the project is, allow me to fill you in.
Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians takes place during the seventy seven year war in the fantasy realm of Rasfalia. The game will tell the story of the war throughout the eyes of various heroes (one per in-game episode). It’s going to be a Tactical RPG, much like Matsuno‘s previous work.
The game will feature complete 3D battlefields and a lot of player interractions and the set platforms are smartphones as well as PC. Though PlayStaiton Vita and Nintendo 3DS both have their stretchgoals.
If you’re interested, head on over to the Kickstarter page and become a backer.
