Mistwalker Announces Terra Wars, Focus on Building New Franchise

Alongside the news that Mistwalker Corporation is developing Terra Battle 2, the Japanese developer revealed (via Games Jouhou and Hachima Kikou) a new game set within the same universe – Terra Wars.

While details are scant, the game is being developed for unannounced platforms, and it will feature Terra Battle characters as claymation. The process involves 2,000 pictures being taken from all angles, which are then used as image data for just one character.

Game creator Hironobu Sakaguchi said that he wants fans to use their imagination for now in regards to how the game will actually play and feel. Further details are coming after the launch of Terra Battle 2.

Due to this game expanding the Terra universe, Sakaguchi said he wants to build up the “Terra World” universe. While Terra Battle is a grid-based tactical game, Terra Wars can introduce new characters and even mechanics. His goal is to release at least nine games within the “Terra World.”

Finally, Sakaguchi noted that his goal of building up the game’s universe is similar to his work on creating and building up the Final Fantasy series, in the sense that while characters, world, and scenarios may change in each title – the grounding for the story is usually similar.

We’ll keep you guys posted.
