Mistwalker founder Hironobu Sakaguchi has revealed concept art for an unannounced game they have in development.

Featured above as well as below, the new artwork was revealed during a creative media master class at UH West Oʻahu Library in Hawaii, only to be uploading online via Twitter user @VoltySquirrel.

According to the user, not much was revealed for the game, however there are some tidbits of note: it’ll probably be released for current generation home consoles, and that it will have a 3D, sketch-like aesthetic.

Finally, Sakaguchi did confirm that Mistwalker is probably going to reveal the game completely in a year.

    From the thumbnail, I thought this was a person’s face with some seriously messed-up cheeks and nose wearing a sci-fi helmet.

    Now I can’t unsee the cute girl.

    I wonder who the developer will be? All the studios they used last time have closed.

    Fuck yes, the Gooch is still alive! Jubileus be praised!

    Hope this will release on PC/X1/PS4, no one deserves to be left out when it comes to this man’s titles. And Microsoft, when’s Lost Odyssey PC?

    Also, here’s a video of the class: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myx_M8kEiro

    I’m really looking forward to this. Last Story to me is the pinnacle of Action JRPG combat, l hope sakaguchi takes what he has learnt and goes beyond.

    Ah mistwalker. Money hatted by MS when they still tried, dropped like a stone when it turned out nobody on the Xbox plays jrpgs.

    Awesome now lets hope it is not on a Nintendo console so the chances are better for a decent localization

    Lost Odyssey? Console exclusive?

    Really hoping this means Lost Odyssey and Blue dragon BC for xbone around the time of western announcement. that’d be NEAT.

    The artwork is gorgeous and makes me a little melancholy…except for Oogie Boogie Cthulu back there.

    Wow. I get a little Akihiko Yoshida and some Yoshitaka Amano from this. Pretty cool.
    Now to brace myself for the inevitable mobile game announcement.

    That thing in the background of the second picture reminds me of Cry On. I wonder if they’ll be revisiting some of those concepts?
