Two former Final Fantasy developers are teaming up with Japanese studio Cygames to produce a a new “blockbuster” role-playing game for mobile devices titled Granblue Fantasy.

Nobuo Uematsu of Final Fantasy soundtrack fame will be composing the score for Granblue Fantasy and Final Fantasy character designer Hideo Minaba (art director on Final Fantasy VI, IX, and XII) will contribute to the game’s art.

According to the official Cygames website, Granblue Fantasy is a classic turn-based RPG with a party of four characters to control. Similar to Final Fantasy, Granblue will employ a summon system by way of magical crystals and will feature a job class system.

So far, Granblue Fantasy has been announced only for Japan, with a winter launch window.
