Square Enix Announces Project Prelude Rune


Game Informer has the story.

Quote:
Square Enix has branched out into numerous genres in recent years, but the publisher will always be inextricably tied with the Japanese role-playing game genre. In keeping with that tradition, the publisher today revealed the founding of a new studio called Studio Istolia, along with the premiere project from the new developer – a mysterious new RPG codenamed Project Prelude Rune.

Square Enix is being pretty cagey about the content of the new role-playing game, sharing only a brief description of what fans can expect from the story. “The project aims to build a new RPG with a new fantasy: unfolding across a vast land teeming with life,” reads the announcement press release. “Nurtured by the earth, the many peoples of this land dare to dream, fighting for what is just—and this is their tale.”

While we don’t know too much about the new game, the leadership of Studio Istolia offers some hints about what we can expect. Studio head and Project Prelude Rune producer Hideo Baba has a long history in RPG development, primarily as a producer on Namco Bandai’s Tales series, including recent entries Tales of Xillia and Tales of Zestiria. Istolia is also tied to a Greek word meaning “story,” which seems to suggest the general focus for the team.

'Final Fantasy VII Remake' Is Looking Good But Questions Remain On How Well It Will P

Hrmmm. With FF7-Remake is the works, why start a whole new IP? Don't they feel good about monetizing FF7 and any games after in that realm?

I guess I could be making more out of it than it probably is, which is just another IP we get to enjoy. But I guess the timing is odd.

Very little is being shown of FF7 Remake, btw.

This is a new IP from a new studio. Square Enix is a pretty decent sized publisher, they have all kinds of irons in the fire. This is at least the second new RPG IP they've announced this year, and they just announced that big deal with Marvel too.

More importantly, wtf are they going to DO with it?
