Following the live stream today where Atlus talked about their new “Project Re Fantasy” and recently opened “Studio Zero,” the company shared more art and a concept video on the project’s official website.
To catch you up to speed, Project Re Fantasy is Atlus’ challenge of making a new orthodox fantasy RPG, which will be the first for the developers. They’ve established a new production studio called “Studio Zero,” led by Persona series producer Katsura Hashino, the studio features other prominent Atlus developers such as artist Shigenori Soejima, composer Shoji Meguro, and other core staff from the Persona series.
Here’s a look at some image board illustrations provided on the newly opened official website. The illustrations by Shigenori Soejima provide us with an idea of what kind of world we can expect from Atlus’ new project.
Here’s an illustration that we got to see drawn in real-time when the live stream kicked off. It was also noted that the red-haired girl (shown on the top image) isn’t the protagonist of the game, so perhaps it could be the one shown in the above image? The subtitle “A Fool’s Journey Begins” is also rather interesting.
And finally, here’s the concept trailer for Project Re Fantasy. It doesn’t talk about the game, but rather, more about the concept behind the project and its challenge to take on an orthodox fantasy RPG.
