Cygames, the makers of Granblue Fantasy and a couple Idolmaster games, last year announced a new mobile title Lost Order, but gave precious little detail other than the fact that it is a "real-time tactics" game. Now the company has announced some key players in development. Platinum Games will develop the game, and the designer is Yasumi Matsuno Ogre Battle, Final Fantasy Tactics, and Vagrant Story fame. Akihiko Yoshida, who worked with him on all those games and more, will provide art direction. Daisuke Sakata will provide sound design and Yoshiki Kashitani will direct.


Main art for Lost Order

According to a recent interview with Famitsu, the game is 70% complete. The developers promise a challenging with simple controls that exceeds the standards smartphone game in terms of quality. The game is set in the Perishable Capital of Gold Heaven and revolves around the social stratification in a hierarchical city. Another key aspect of the story is mysterious Legend of the Thirteen Soaring Jet Black Knights.

The four main characters are:

Roz

Roz seeks to find true freedom, so he fights in Gold Heaven to seek truth about justice in the world.

Blaze

Chelsea
