Project Prelude Rune Coming From New Square Enix Studio
Square Enix has announced the formation of new studio based in Tokyo, Japan called Studio Istolia, which is already working on their first game, a rpg titled Project Prelude Rune.
Studio Istolia further builds on Square Enix Group’s vision to create new intellectual properties alongside existing Square Enix studios. Hideo Baba who has over 18 years of experience in game development will serve as the studio head.
Hideo Baba is working as the producer of “Project Prelude Rune” as well. 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 .
Further details on “Project Prelude Rune” are set be revealed at a later time, but given how the last new studio they created gave the world I Am Setsuna and before that Bravely Default, this is a good thing.
No platforms have been announced for this new game as of this time, but we do have some sketches you can enjoy.
