Fantasian Creator Comments on PC Port and Possible Sequel

At Magic 2023, Hironobu Sakaguchi, the father of the Final Fantasy series, stated that he would be interested in a PC release and sequel of Fantasian. However, there is no concrete confirmation as of yet in regards to either. Sakaguchi’s comment indicate an interest in continuing to expand on Fantasian. [Thanks, IGN!]

The full quote from the article, translated, from Sakaguchi in regards to Fantasian is: “There are a lot of fans who want to see it on Windows, as well as lots of questions regarding a sequel. I wish to continue to do my best and work on it. … Fantasian is a title that I still want people to experience.” There is no hard commitment or promise in his statement, and it is unclear what has to happen (or what is happening) behind the scenes at Mistwalker in regards to the game.

Fantasian came out in 2021 for Apple Arcade. Hironobu Sakaguchi created it and Nobuo Uematsu (also of Final Fantasy fame) was the composer. It has a unique diorama style, as well as an aiming mechanic for attacks. It focuses on an amnesiac boy named Leo in an alternate universe. There are two parts to the game and it does not feature any micro-transactions.

As of the time of writing, Fantasian is only available via Apple Arcade, despite Sakaguchi’s interest in a PC port.
