Terra Battle 2 RPG App Launches in Japan, N. America on September 21
The official website for Terra Battle 2, the newest installment in the “Terra World” franchise by Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi‘s Mistwalker game studio, announced on Tuesday that the game will launch in Japan and North America on September 21 on iOS and Android devices. The PC version’s release date has not yet been revealed. The site is also streaming a new trailer.
In addition, the original Terra Battle game will add the Class Z character “Haruhikari” from Terra Battle 2 beginning on September 20.
Sakaguchi introduced Terra Battle 2 alongside the Terra Wars game, both for iOS, Android, and PC. The games are part of his new “Terra World” franchise, which will have a similar numbering system to Final Fantasy. “Each installment of the ‘Terra’ franchise will have its disctinct feel, unique from any other,” Sakaguchi wrote in a message on the Terra Battle 2 website. “I (secretly) wish to expand the “Terra World” and create 9 experiences. (As I have created 9 installments for the Final Fantasy series.)”
Silicon Studio (Bravely Default) is developing the game and Sakaguchi is serving as producer. Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy) is composing the music and Mistwalker‘s Kimihiko Fujisaka is the lead character designer.
The game will have the same core battle mechanics as the original Terra Battle RPG, but with redesigned gameplay and a new world map and story. It will be free to play with in-app purchases.
The original Terra Battle smartphone RPG launched in October 2014. The game has been downloaded more than 2.7 million times. More artists will join the project with more downloads.
