Square Enix has brought us many years of joy with their video games, as well as hours of frustration, laughter, strategizing- and even heartbreak. Well known, especially for their Final Fantasy game series, the company is truly masterful when it comes to crafting a captivating and enchanting game. They have recently announced a new RPG in the works by the name of Project Prelude Rune.
We don’t know much about the project currently, including not knowing a release date or even what console(s) the game will be released for initially. While it seems to be shrouded in secrecy for the most part, we were given a few juicy details in the form of concept art and a short description.
“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 people of this land dare to dream, fighting for what is just- and this is their tale.”
The statement comes from Studio Istolia- the ones in charge of producing the project. Studio Istolia is a new studio launched by Square Enix: it is so new that they are still hiring, and only recently completed their now up and running website. The goal of Studio Istolia is to further build onto Square Enix Group’s vision to create new IP alongside existing Square Enix studios.
At the new studio’s head, and Producer of Project Prelude Rune, is former Tales Of Producer Hideo Baba. While the new project seems to be going in a different direction than the Tales Of series, Baba has over 18 years experience and has shown his extreme talent in the role play gaming genre- leaving a reassurance that the new project should be a spectacular work of gaming.
