Kazushige Nojima (scenario writer on Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy VIII), Hideo Minaba (art director from Final Fantasy VI and Final Fantasy IX), Nakaba Higurashi (character designer on Baten Kaitos), and Nobuo Uematsu (Mistwalker composer) are working together on a new RPG.
Five hundred years ago a magician split the world of Borderwalker into two. Day Land has perpetual day and Night Land is always nighttime. A border separates the two lands, but when a person is born during a lunar and solar eclipse they can live into both worlds. As the Borderwalker, your mission is to revert the world to its original state. Players will meet two sets of townsfolk in Borderwalker including the hero’s parents Thalys and Tyler.
Borderwalker has a unique battle system that splits the touch screen into a 3×3 grid. Players can use different skills by touching the grid in different spots. You can learn secret techniques by playing through the game’s sub scenarios. Crunge Productions also created dungeons to explore and a colosseum with powerful monsters to fight.
Borderwalker is available on iTunes now for 900 yen ($11).
