Final Fantasy creator Hironobu Sakaguchi has unveiled his latest role-playing adventure - a free-to-play game for mobile platforms.
Terra Battle is in development for iOS and Android at Mistwalker, the studio Sakaguchi founded in 2004 following his departure from Square Enix.
Although details are presently thin, the game is said to be balanced in a way that will allow players to finish it without having to make any real-money purchases.
According to a Famitsu report, famed Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu is on board, providing around 20 music tracks for the game.
Art also courtesy of Famitsu offer the first glimpse of the game's characters. The plot is still under wraps, but a new official teaser site contains the following introduction:
"An Encounter that will tear away the veil shrouding the world's secrets and set the gears of fate in motion."
According to online translations, Sakaguchi would like in future to bring Terra Battle to consoles, but it appears only mobile versions are planned at present.
Sakaguchi is expected to reveal more of the game in Paris this week, where the developer will attend the VideoGameStory Exhibition taking place on July 3.
Terra Battle is due to release later this year.
