July 26, 2015

tri-Ace and Spike Chunsoft have been teasing a new JRPG lately, but while the team members revealed so far (Composer Motoi Sakuraba and Scenario Writer Masaki Norimoto) are names heavily tied with the developer’s name, the one revealed today is a surprise.

As you can see below the character design will be handled by Mino Taro, who recently left Konami, and is well known for his soft and cute artwork on the LovePlus and Tokimeki Memorial Girl’s Side dating sim series.

It’ll definitely be interesting to see how his artwork will adapt to a JRPG. Color me excited.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
