Today Kadokawa Games took to Twitter to wish its fans a happy New Year, and they had a further surprise in store for fans of the Front Mission series and of strategy JRPGs.
The publisher mentioned that it plans to complete development and release the game codenamed Project Stella in 2019. On top of that, they provided the first direct-feed screenshots of the title. You can see them at the bottom of the post.
If you’re unfamiliar with Project Stella, it’s a spin-off of Kadokawa Games’ recently shut-down mobile game Starly Girls: Episode Starsia, which featured a rather fetching combination of cute girls and mecha action.
The game will be released for undisclosed home consoles (while another game code-named Project Europa is in development for mobile), and it’s a full-fledged strategy JRPG by the team that created the original Front Mission on Super NES.
At the moment, very little else is known about the game, which was teased on Famitsu a while ago. Kadokawa Games’ own President Yoshimi Yasuda (who recently worked on God Wars and shares a massive love for the strategy JRPG genre) is overseeing the project.
While we don’t know the specific platforms, Kadokawa Games recently established a track record for releasing its games on PS4 and Switch, and has been exploring Steam as well. It’s likely this game will head in the same direction, even if we’ll have to wait for an official announcement to be sure.
