Was The Last Story Developer Working On A Third Person Shooter?


tls Artoon, the studio that developed The Last Story and Blue Dragon, may have been working a third person shooter. A digital artist’s CV reveals an unannounced TPS was in development between December 2006 and February 2008. The game was ultimately canceled.


Before working at Artoon, Tatsumi was a digital artist at Square Enix where he created character art for Egg Monster Hero 4 and worked on a canceled action game between November 2004 and May 2005.


He’s now working on an unannounced adventure game, which Marvelous AQL might release in the future. This project started as an Artoon title in April 2009. Development temporarily stopped so Artoon could complete Club Penguin Game Day. After AQ Interactive merged all of their studios into one entity, the project resumed in June 2010 and the unannounced adventure game is still in development at Marvelous AQL.
