Project Phoenix is an attempt to return to the old school principles of JRPG’s and do it right. Gathering a selection of industry veterans of games as diverse as Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, Diablo III, L.A. Noire, and more as well as the esteemed composer for Final Fantasy 1 – 10 Nobuo Uematsu, Creative Intelligence Arts is aiming high.
There have been many attempts to return to the halcyon days of the JRPG, not all of that successful, and with modern games becoming increasingly bloated and ridiculous (or boring - cough FF XIII cough-) it’s about someone with a triple A background gave it a go.
Although the game will be released primarily on PC, a version is coming to Android and iOS in order to make the game available to the highest amount of gamers they can.
At the time of writing they’re well on the way to meet the $300,000 stretch goal with 28 days left to go. It wouldn’t surprise me if they met their to stretch goal of $1,650,000 by the time the campaign was done.
KEMCO has released the first screens and videos of its new JRPG game, Alphadia Genesis, set to release this summer in Japan and other territories this winter. It seems that every other week KEMCO releases a new JRPG onto the Google Play Marketplace, so what makes this announcement newsworthy? It is because Alphadia Genesis seems to be a major departure from the norm for KEMCO.
While most JRPGs released by the veteran company are clones of the 16-bit adventures of yesteryear, Alphadia Genesis seems to be an interesting hybrid between the 16-bit classics and more modern RPGs. Alphadia Genesis represents the third in the Alphadia RPG series, but while the other two were basic 16-bit RPG fare, this new game utilizes full 3D graphics during battles, something that could have never been accomplished during the genre’s golden age.
