Hiroyuki Ito revolutionized Final Fantasy with the Active Time Battle system. Now, Ito is taking a stab at changing card battling games with Guardian Cross. Akira Oguro, character designer on Final Fantasy IV: The After Years and Final Fantasy: Dimensions, designed characters for Guardian Cross too. Final Fantasy XI composer Naoshi Mizuta made music for the game.
In Guardian Cross, players tame Guardians using a magic rifle. Then you can train Guardians and put them in a deck to battle other players. Guardian Cross has over 180 different Guardians in the game and some of them look a lot like their Final Fantasy equivalent.
Guardian Cross is available now as a free download for iOS devices.
