Square Enix has announced a new RPG project, currently referred to as Project Prelude Rune, which is in development by their newly established Studio Istolia. Former Tales of series producer Hideo Baba will be producing the project, and will be serving as head of the new studio.
Taking its name from the Greek word for ‘story’, Studio Istolia aims to create new IP, centred around providing new game experiences with unforgettable stories that will inspire players in their own lives.
Here’s the overview of Project Prelude Rune from the announcement:
The project aims to build a new RPG with a new fantasy: unfolding across a vast land teeming with life. Nurtured by the earth, the many peoples of this land dare to dream, fighting for what is just—and this is their tale.
This is huge news in more ways than one! Further details on Project Prelude Rune will be revealed at a later time, but it sounds like an exciting development! I can’t wait to hear more about it!
