Unsung Story, the upcoming tactical RPG envisioned by Final Fantasy Tactics director Yasumi Matsuno, was originally releasing only on PC but is now headed to Switch, PS4, and Xbox One.
With a total amount pledged of $660,126, the Kickstarter Campaign for Unsung Story didn’t make it to any of its stretch goals for other platforms including the PS Vita at $1,000,000, the PS4 at $1,250,000, or Nintendo 3DS at $1,500,000.
In a new update by Little Orbit, who has announced that it has taken over the development from Playdek last month, it was revealed that the game will be headed to Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. Here’s what was shared on that:
That’s right! I am very excited to announce we are adding Microsoft XBoxOne, Sony Playstation 4, and Nintendo Switch versions of Unsung Story.
For me, I remember playing Final Fantasy Tactics from the couch on my PS1, and that format was quintessential to my experience enjoying that game. Hopefully this balances some of the cancellations and changes we are making.
As backers, you will be able to replace your previous platform selections with these console versions at no extra cost. Backers are still limited to the number of copies they purchased through Kickstarter. So if you backed at the Early Bird tier, then you have 1 copy coming as a reward. You will be able to change your selection in Backerkit for that single copy to select any platform except the ones we have removed.
We cannot at this time give any details on whether there will be cross play between any of the platforms.
Unsung Story currently doesn’t have an estimated release but hopefully this means we’ll be hearing more about the game in the near future.
