Hironobu Sakaguchi shared a bit about his vision for Mistwalker’s “Terra World” universe with Terra Battle, Terra Battle 2, and Terra Wars. Here’s more on that from the press release:
This is the inception of a brand new franchise — Terra World.
Following the success of “Terra Battle” (Terra Battle 1), I have created “Terra Battle 2” and “Terra Wars.” While both share the same fundamentals as Terra Battle, they offer re-designed gameplay, and a completely new world and story.
I intend to use a similar numbering structure as my past work: the Final Fantasy series. Each installment of the “Terra” franchise will have its disctinct feel, unique from any other.
Yes, I have become old enough that some call me a “legend,” of the industry, but I wish to try and remain an active creator. Until the day I retire, I (secretly) wish to expand the “Terra World” and create 9 experiences. (As I have created 9 installments for the Final Fantasy series.)
I will continue work on the original “Terra Battle,” with updates that add story and game-play to the world. I thank you for your continued support for “Terra Battle,” “Terra Battle 2” and “Terra Wars.”

Here’s a first look at Terra Wars, which comes with a claymation style:
It’s been revealed that Terra Wars is also being made for iOS, Android, and PC and that Arzest is developing Terra Wars with Mistwalker. No further information was revealed, but we’ll learn more at Anime Expo next month, where Hironobu Sakaguchi is set to appear.
Terra Battle 2 launches in Summer2017 in North America and Japan for iPhone, Android, and PC. It’ll be a free-to-play title with micro-transactions. Terra Wars releases later this year on the same platforms.
