Creator Hironobu Sakaguchi also took to Twitter to discuss the JRPG’s debut. First, he posted a more casual tweet about the launch. Then, he pointed out it shares an April 2nd birthday with Final Fantasy VI, which he produced and cited as an inspiration for this title.

As a reminder, Fantasian is a game that will be released in two parts. The second half will arrive later in 2021. Each part features handmade dioaramas and will be 20-30 hours long. People follow an amnesiac named Leo as he works alongside other characters to find his memories and also save their world. It also features a Dimengeon system that lets you pause encounters, then fight all of the enemies in a Dimengeon Battle.

Fantasian is out on Apple Arcade for iOS devices in Japan now.
