The lights are on
With only 10 hours to go, the Kickstarter campaign for Yasumi Matsuno’s Unsung Story has brought in almost $620,000. This pushes the project over the goal line, with the game scheduled for release in July 2015.
Matsuno is known for his work on Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, and Final Fantasy XII. He is joined by artist Akihiko Yoshida (Final Fantasy Tactics, Bravely Default), composer Hitoshi Sakimoto (Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story), and the team at Playdek, which will be publishing the game.
Unsung Story will be coming to PC, Mac, Linux, and Windows tablets thanks to the Kickstarter funding. Android and iOS versions are also planned. For more on the title, check out our coverage of the class system, the story, and combat. For the full pitch, visit the Kickstarter page.
Our TakeWhile I’m disappointed that there isn’t more of a prototype available, the pool of talent committed to this project is most impressive. Vagrant Story and Final Fantasy Tactics both carry a lot of nostalgia for me, and I’m looking forward to buying this when it’s released.
