Although not much is known about the game as of this moment, there is some good news for RPG fans who like projects from Square Enix in that the company will bring forth Project Prelude Rune sometime in the near future. Being developed in the new studio in Tokyo, Studio Istolia, Hideo Baba will be the president of the company.
If you are curious this information comes from Square Enix, who announced that the new project that will be an RPG at heart. I’m not sure how the game will be, but seeing that it’s an RPG I am curious to see what it will bring to table when gameplay videos finally start to roll out.
In addition to the project’s announcement, Square Enix took to its main site to explain some of the basics that can be expected when more information drops in the future. This includes the game’s genre, world and more.
You can read a little excerpt from the announcement page:
“Hideo Baba is working as the producer of “Project Prelude Rune” as well. 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.”
Tagging along with the announcement comes concept art for the game, which at this point only shows landscape/environments, a girl and a dragon, and a Moogle-like thing. You can check the screens out for yourself below (which appear on the game’s new site).
As noted above, not much is known about the game as of this moment, but hopefully the game will bring some original stuff to the table when it does debut. But while we wait for more info to surface the studio is currently looking for battle, map and UI planners, designers for characters, and programmers.
