Developer: MISTWALKER CORPORATION
Fantasian is an iOS exclusive fantasy genre RPG developed by Mistwalker Corp., the company led by Sakaguchi Hironobu, the creator of "Final Fantasy" franchise and "Lost Odyssey." One noticeable selling point is over a hundred and fifty 3D micromodels of the scene that you can play made by professional artists. Also, the renowned video game composer Uematsu Nobuo produced the soundtrack for the game.
The story is about a young man named Leo who lost most of his memory in a massive explosion. To recover his memory, he will start his journey to the world dominated and controlled by the mechs. Unravel the truth as more and more significant pieces like diaries or logs appear.
The game uses the classic turn-based combat system. What makes it unique is the adjustment of the target selection with the skills. You can optimize your attack by strategically arranging the projectile and penetrate as many enemies as possible.
Another remarkable feature the game offers is Dimengeon. Players can "save" the hostile encounters in an independent dimension so the players can fight them whenever they want. It improves the overall pace of the game without interrupting the enjoyment of map exploration.
Fantasian is a traditional Japanese RPG that Sakaguchi Hironobu has worked on for many years, and it stands out in the graphics, visual effects, environmental details, and music. The game will give the players an immersive gaming experience even on a mobile device.
