Looks like Square has another ARPG in the works, this one being developed by their 1st Production Department on the Unity Engine. Is it a new franchise entirely? Or maybe a sequel to Type-0? Or FFXIII-3? Or something KH related?

Well, it says action RPG, so it's highly doubtful.

The article makes mention of using an airship over a world map with gameplay within the airship itself. Definitely sounds like a Final Fantasy game, but I doubt it's FFXIII-3.

I think it could be anything for now. From Type-1, some other FF game, KH, to a new IP. I'm sure we can apply the term "airship" lightly until an official name is revealed considering a lot of SE games use flying aircrafts...then inns are in other games as well. I'm leaning to Type-1 :3

Kingdom Hearts with a airship I actually like that idea, hopefully its that Kingdom Hearts game that they only mentioned once.

While I can argue that this could be KH (which I did with Seta for fun), I wouldn't put too much hope into it EM.

DERP DERP I didn't see the edits until now xD This is Division 1 xD

FF Haeresis XIII, calling it now.

But seriously, I believe it's a sequel to Type-0, possibly on a home console?

Edit: Forgot, it is on the PS3/Vita hahahahaha

I don't care what the game is called. xD

It's an Action-RPG, it's been developed from the PDD1 and for the console i own and i will own!

This is a day 1 buy! New IP, old IP(FF, KH etc) bring it on! :D

What? The article doesn't say any of this...

It says the team is looking for developers who have experience developing "RPG mechanics like a job and ability growth system as well as inns and airship travel."

How did you go from that to what you said? Sheesh... lol.

As for whether it's a FF title or a KH title, it sounds like it could go either way. "Airship travel" is probably what I would put on a job listing if I needed someone to make the gummi-ship sections. You can't exactly put down that you need someone with "Gummi-Ship" experience.

That's just paraphrasing from FFN. I probably should've mentioned I was mostly referring to andriasang's article, but didn't believe anyone to take that paraphrasing literal.

Another listing, asks for planners to work on gameplay over a 3D field. The job consists of creating play elements for flying an airship over a world map, and planning gameplay for within an air ship, including things like inn functionality, customization elements and checking up on game progress.
