Famitsu reveals that SEGA has a new free-to-play ‘online theater RPG’ video game as they describe it. It will be launched this winter in Japan on the Playstation Vita, mobile and PC. Save data is said to carry over to all three platforms, online servers are also shared meaning cross-platform online play is a possibility.
The game seems to be online only and will have simplified RTS like elements that let you build, explore and fight. Battles are said to be mostly automated with ‘fast-forward and pause buttons’. I can see this be SEGA’s take on the ever popular Clash of Clans franchise.
So now the main people behind the project are revealed as well:
Producer: Shinji Motoyama (Valkyria Chronicles 2, Nightshade)
Art Director: Daisuke Tabayashi (Valkyria Chronicles, Blood Will Tell)
Main Character Design: Katsumi Enami (Star Ocean: The Last Hope, Ys Seven)
Music Production: Hitoshi Sakimoto (Valkyria Chronicles, Vagrant Story, Radiant Silvergun)
Seeing that its bound to have an epic soundtrack and is free to play, it might be worth downloading just for the soundtrack alone.Ad:
