It’s New Frontier, It’s A New Square Enix Sim Game

imageNo, this isn’t another RPG where you save the world from an insecure villain. In It’s New Frontier players help a group of pioneers tap resources from the wild.

 

Claus, who dresses like a white mage, orders his pals that look like other Final Fantasy staples to gather water and food. The goal of the game is to build a settlement by managing limited resources.

 

While you only have a small group of frontiersmen men, all of them have magical abilities. Claus can activate Holy Light to collect double the amount of water and Penela can trigger Forest Dance to harvest twice the amount of wood.

 

Akitoshi Kawazu, creator of SaGa aka Final Fantasy Legend, played a key role in the development of It’s New Frontier. Currently the 525 yen ($5.50) game is only available on cell phones in Japan.

      Same here.
      Perhaps a good candidate for DSiware or Playstation mini down the line?

        It would be, definitely.
        I’d be surprised if this cute little game didn’t pop up as one or the other.

    Huh, is Sting’s artist doing a part-time gig over there? That guy and girl in the dialog shots look like they got lost on the way to Riviera.
