Today legendary Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakahuchi himself appeared in a new video from his studio Mistwalker Corporation.
The video showcases the gameplay of the upcoming JRPG Terra Battle 2, showing features on top of similarities and differences with its predecessor, Terra Battle.
While specific battles are handled pretty much similarly to Terra Battle, we get to see the ability of assigning equipment to characters pretty much like in any JRPG, and the area map that the party can navigate, setting up combat with specific formations.
It’s even possible to maneuver the party so that more than one group of enemies are dragged in a single battle, turning into large engagements.
You can also read our extensive coverage from Anime Expo, starting from an interview with Hironobu Sakaguchi himself. During a separate press panel, Sakaguchi-san also talked about his opinion on the Nintendo Switch, the (unlikely) possibility of his return to the Final Fantasy franchise, and shared more details on the console version of Terra Battle.
Terra Battle 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but Sakaguchi-san and his studio are hard at work to meet a late summer release window for iOS, Android and PC, at least in Japan and North America, with more countries to follow.
