Furyu, the publisher that brought us Last Bullet and the supernatural RPG Tsuku Monogatari, have a rather ambitious project. UnchainBlades ReXX is a dungeon RPG with over a dozen well known creators.
Famitsu reports Takashi Hino, known for his work on Grandia, is the scenario designer. Toshio Akashi, famous for Lunar, is the director of UnchainBlades ReXX. Nobuo Uematsu is composing the game’s theme song.
Each character in UnchainBlades ReXX is designed by a different artist. Bastard!! artist Kazushi Hagiwara created Crunea, a goddess who oversees the entire world. Shinichiro Otsuka who worked on Flight Plan games including Summon Night and Eternal Poison created Hector, a golem prince. Lunar artist Toshiyuki Kubooka drew the miraculous girl with nine-tails Niko. Manga artist Haruyuki Morisawa created the female lead character, phoenix princess Teana. The male protagonist, Fang, who is said to be the strongest dragon king is one of pako’s works. Pako designed characters for many Shining series games titles including Shining Force Feather.
UnchainBlades ReXX is 3D dungeon RPG with turn based battles. During battles, you can covert monsters into followers by using the unchain system. Up to 16 monsters can follow your four man party for a total of 20 characters in a group.
Furyu says their "know your true strength RPG" is on track for a June 23 release on PSP and Nintendo 3DS.
