    Boom. Guess we don't have to wait for Japan Expo?

    The art looks very similar to The Last Story so I assume it's Drakengard artist Kimihiko Fujisaka?

    Well... at least it's an RPG.

    I'm cautiously optimistic about this. I'm interested 'cause it's simply a Sakaguchi game, but the words free-to-play almost always bad news for me.

    It's interesting right now what we know and what we don't know.

    We've heard now about the title, the staff, Uematsu, seen character art - but not a single look yet at the game's engine. I guess the full reveal is in August?

    Here is an opportunity for him to come and just slay the 16-bit retro JRPG market for mobile devices but for all we know he may try to make this a full on 3D title.

    The two main guys he has working on this had both been at Square a long time but never served any significant roles there - but it does appear they put some work into the rendering engine for Crystal Tools.

    Anyhow - just a bit of rambling here but I'm very curious and for Mr. Sakaguchi that is a good thing right now.

    It's a shame he isn't making another console entry. I actually quite enjoyed The Last Story despite its over-abundance of "clichés" and "tropes".

    Hopefully he goes back to console development after this.

    I've given up on games that are on mobile platforms. Not interested.

    It's free so I'll atleast give it a try. Mobile games can be quite fun, but they're rarely as engaging as proper console games.

    Squirrel Emperor - What are your thoughts on this?

    It kinda reminds me of Final Fantasy Tactics. Both games are basically grid based strategy games. The only big difference is a visual one.

    Looks to me like this is trying to appeal to the whole Puzzles and Dragons crowd while still being kind of RPG-ish and still being its own thing. At first I was a little put off by the gameplay, but after watching a gameplay overview on the game's official site I can actually see myself getting into this. Visual design/sound design/interface all look pretty good. This is actually the first mobile game I've seriously considered playing.

    I'm pretty disappointed (I don't know why but I built myself up to the possibility this would be a 2D sprite based JRPG), but will still download it and give it a try.

    For the most part, everything seems to be maps, menus, and board battles - I don't think there will be anything to "explore" in the traditional sense.
