Final Fantasy Tactics Creator Launches Kickstarter Campaign

Yasumi Matsuno, the man behind such fantastic RPGs as Tactics Ogre, Vagrant Story and of course Final Fantasy Tactics, wants to develop a game again, and in order to do so, he has gone to Kickstarter to try and get funding. Titled Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians, this will be a RPG of unknown scale that is said to be “the spiritual successor in a storied line of epic tactical RPGs designed by Yasumi Matsuno.”

Matsuno has teamed up with Playdek Games to develop Unsung Story with an emphasis on class-based tactical gameplay. The game will be coming to PC and Mac platforms, but as much as hardcore gamers will cringe at this, it is being developed primarily on mobile devices (Android and iOS). This most likely has to do with Playdek’s history in the mobile space, so it’s not entirely unexpected. Their goal is set at $600,000 with various pledge levels upwards of ten thousand dollars, but it might be best to wait and see what the game will look like before jumping in.
