If you were hoping that Level 5’s next release would be a Ni No Kuni sequel, you may want to temper your expectations a touch for the time being. The colossal Japanese developer has announced Wonder Flick, a bitesized fantasy RPG that aims to capture the feel of a sprawling adventure in short bursts.
Clearly born out of the smartphone sensation that’s gripping Japan at the moment, the PlayStation 4 and Vita release will see you completing quests, visiting towns, and battling foes in “flick-based” combat. Interestingly, the title will feature second screen support via compatible smartphones and tablets on Sony’s next generation console.
The game’s being designed by company gaffer Akihiro Hino, and will boast music by Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu. You’ll be able to share your save data between systems, and each platform will feature an exclusive dungeon. The title’s set to release on iOS and Android this year, with the console versions set to follow in 2014. Check out the trailer for the mobile iteration below.
