New Unchained Blades Has Final Fantasy Artist And Final Fantasy Composer

By Spencer . June 26, 2012 . 5:37pm

imageContinuing to attract new talent, Furyu’s Unchained Blades series added long time Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu on the staff list. He’s composing music for Unchained Blades Exxiv.


Final Fantasy character artist Yoshitaka Amano is also working on Unchained Blades Exxiv. He created a black knight character for the upcoming dungeon crawler. Altogether there are fifteen well known artists including Durarara! and Devil Survivor artist Suzuhito Yasuda who created the game’s lead character. Unchained Blades Exxiv comes out in Japan for Nintendo 3DS and PSP on October 18.


Xseed picked up the first game, simply called Unchained Blades, which is available right now for PSP.

  • As cool as it is to find out that Yoshitaka Amano and Nobuo Uematsu are involved in the next Unchained Blades, the inclusion of Suzuhito Yasuda is far more exciting for me. I absolutely love his artwork and the fact that the new protagonist is designed by him is the best thing I’ve seen about this game so far.

    Y’know, I always hope Xseed’s releases do well, but now I’m hoping Unchained Blades does exceptionally well because this just got interesting. Uematsu and Amano? Awesome.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Unchainblade exxiv is getting better and better here.^^

    Here I can only hope that the localization here will sell well here and giving this game chances to come here.^^

  • Chiupon

    i feel like I would actually play this if the art was consistent. T: 

  • JazzyMan123

    Alright people, you know what to do. :)

    • Right! *takes off pants*

      • JazzyMan123

         Argh!!! It BURNSS!!!!!

    • Support the 1st game? Also anything @Monkey_T:disqus say= Lol ur profile pic!!!

  • Is the first game any good? I might consider getting this one if it is.

    • JazzyMan123

       Well, just ask Tom and Hatsuu. :)

  • Looking good. :)

  • puchinri

    I thought Uematsu composed for the first one anyway? It’s fairly logical that he’d return. I like all the different talent that they get together for these.

    I’m mildly interested in the game, but I feel like I need to hear more of the voice-work first (then again, I could just turn it off~).

    Is it also available in the Vita’s PS store?

    • Solomon_Kano

      I don’t know, but… can’t you go check on your Vita?

      • JazzyMan123

        It isn’t Vita Compatible as of yet.

        • KuroiKen

          And might never be, lol. Sony just tricked everyone that all PSP games will be available, but they won’t be, probably.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Thanks. You should probably, tell Raikage that though.

      • RaikageV

        Actually I can but then I’d need to reset my Vita again in order to use my American PSN-Account and thats totally annoying.

        • Solomon_Kano

          Ah. That’s understandable. It’s definitely a hassle to keep jumping back and forth.

  • If tht dood in the center of the image is done by Suzuhito Yasuda, tht gotta one of the most unique charac design tht he draws.
    I actually though they got Tetsuya Nomura lol.  But I do wonder tht the difference in artist is a good or bad thing….. I think I will decide when 1st game is out.

  • That yellow twin tail haired girl character I can tell that is drawn. by KEI (the one who drawn Hatsune Miku )

    • He the vocaloid artist ryte?

    • Kai2591

      Agreed. I was surprised to see KEI’s art in this haha~

  • zeta

    what why Xseed not made it available on 3ds yet?
