Upcoming “Blockbuster” JRPG Starring Nobuo Uematsu is Granblue Fantasy, Gets Beautiful Trailer

on November 8, 2013 8:38 AM

A few days ago the Japanese developer and publisher Cygames opened a teaser site for an upcoming “blockbuster” JRPG starring Nobuo Uematsu as a composer and Final Fantasy veteran Hideo Minaba as a character designer.

The good news is that the game has been revealed today with the title Granblue Fantasy. A full official site (that looks really, really good) has been opened and a really beautiful anime trailer has been released. You can see the video at the bottom of the post together with a screenshot of the gameplay.

You probably saw the shape of the screenshot already, so you possibly guessed the not-so-good news. It’s for mobile phones, supported by the Japanese portal Mobage.

The game will be released this winter. I leave you with the trailer and with our regrets on what it could have been…
