Report – Massive Unreal-powered Square RPG debuts in Famitsu
According to an Andriasang report, Famitsu’s debuting a massive Square Enix RPG in its latest issue.
From what the magazine seems to be saying, the game will be powered by Unreal Engine. Square announced a deal with Epic Games to licence UE3 for “multiple” projects a few weeks ago.
Produced by Dragon Quest IX producer Ryutaro Ichimura, the title is for consoles, but Square is also apparently looking at a next-gen release.
