A NeoGAF user has created an excellent repository of art and other assets pulled from various sources, all related to Fortress, the codename for a cancelled Final Fantasy 12 spin-off once in the works at shuttered Swedish developer Grin. The project was rumoured to be still in development but nothing seems to have come of that, so head over to ‘Gaf to ponder what might have been. The studio’s leaders blamed Square Enix for the project’s failure and the company’s eventual demise.

Concept art and a video from a purported remake of Strider along with concept art from the cancelled Final Fantasy: Fortress have surfaced over on the Spanish site Anait Games. According to site, the assets were sent over by a former Grin Barcelona employee which worked at the firm before it was shuttered in 2009. The employee stated when the Final Fantasy game was cancelled, the firm started working with Ubisoft on financing “the game formerly known as Strider” and was in talks with Capcom, and working on a new Streets of Rage game. Sadly, none of the titles were to see the light of day, as GRIN is now no more. You can check out a video of what was the firm’s Strider reboot below, and look over the rest of the concept art from Fortress, which has a decidedly Noric feel to it, through the link.Thanks, Victor.
