Final Fantasy: Tactics Creator Takes to Kickstarter for Unsung Story
When talking about the best of the Final Fantasy franchise, that’s my instant answer. XII is amazing, VI and IX are great and VII is iconic, and I’m breaking the rules by straying outside the core series with a spinoff, but I don’t care. I love me some Final Fantasy: Tactics. That’s why I’m thrilled that Yasumi Matsuno, creator of FF: Tactics (not to mention FF XII, Tactics Ogre, and Vagrant Story) is partnering with Playdek to make a new turn-based tactical RPG, Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians.
And they need our help. The project is now on Kickstarter, and Matsuno and Playdek are seeking $600,000 to create the fantasy world of Rasfalia. Unsung Story will tell the tale of this kingdom’s history, with players reliving bast battles and historical events that shaped it. If they get their money by February 14, Playdek says Unsung Story will ship for PC, iOS, and Android in the summer of 2015. Get the full pitch from the devs in the Kickstarter video below:
Unsung Story is off to a great start already, raising more than $200,000 in its first full day on Kickstarter. Count me in.
