Apple Arcade’s subscription service has expanded to include over thirty new games, and Fantasian is perhaps the most eye-catching title. This is an RPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi, creator of Final Fantasy games.
Fantasian It is, according to the official description, an RPG in which more than 150 handcrafted miniature 3D models or dioramas have been used to form the virtual world. These are dioramas created by artists from the Japanese Tokusatsu industry, an industry in development special effects. For example, a number of these artists contributed to the Godzilla, Attack on Titan, and Ultraman films.
The story revolves around a multi-dimensional world where machines rule. Players play Leo, who wakes up in a foreign land after a massive explosion with only one memory left. In his quest to recover his memories, he also became more clear about the “mechanical infection” gaining the upper hand over humanity. This story was written by Sacaguchi and the soundtrack was created by Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu.
The story is told by presenting the different memories as mini stories within the game each with their own style, music, and sound effects. The gameplay is consistent with elements of the classic Japanese RPG, although the so-called Dimengeon Battle has been added. This allows players to transfer previously encountered enemies into separate enemies prison cell To improve their fighting skills, for example.
