Toybox CEO Yasuhiro Wada assembled an all-star team for his new game Project Happiness. Nobuo Uematsu is composing music for the title and Pokémon illustrator Atsuko Nishida designed the game’s characters and the Sprite.
"Depending on how you play Project Happiness, the Sprite’s story changes," Wada said when we spoke with him about Project Happiness. The Sprite also acts as an in game navigator, but it won’t evolve or anything like that.
Project Happiness will have other animals to interact with, but the Sprite is the only fantasy-like creature in the upcoming game.
Natsume plans on releasing Project Happiness in early 2013 and while we don’t know the specific platforms, Project Happiness will be multiplatform.
