Can you guess what Square Enix’s newest project is about? RPG. It’s an RPG.
The publishing and developing giant released a neat press release on their holdings page in the wee hours of the night for some. They’ve announced a new role playing endeavor titled “Project Prelude Rune” and how it was being created by newly formed developer, STUDIO ISTOLIA. This new team is also helmed by Hideo Baba who is best known for his work as a producer and director on the Tales of series. (Tales of Xillia is the best).
Not too many details were revealed about the game itself, but we did receive this short description. “The project aims to build a new RPG with a new fantasy: unfolding across a vast land teeming with life. Nurtured by the earth, the many peoples of this land dare to dream, fighting for what is just—and this is their tale.”
Per usual, we’ve been promised more information at a later time and no indication on when that is. In the meantime take some guesses as to what this project could possibly be about. Moreover, will it be a new IP or a series continuation when finally unveiled? Let us know in the comments below!
