Back in 2018, Hajime Tabata left Square Enix to form his own studio JP Games. Apparently, he’s ready to return to the genre that made him well known, JRPGs.
Tabata-san’s latest release in the genre is Final Fantasy XV, which he directed. He also worked on previous titles of the series, like Final Fantasy Type-0.
After forming JP Games, he released something completely different in the form of the virtual world connected with the 2021 Tokyo Paralympics The Pegasus Dream Tour.
Yet, he has also been working on a new JRPG, and he talked about it within an extensive article published by Japanese website 4Gamer, in which local developers shared their plans for next year.
Tabata-san mentioned that looks like he’ll be able to reveal his new JRPG in 2022. His goal for the year is to expand JP Games’ business in games and in the metaverse.
Speaking of the metaverse, JP games is also working on that kind of application for the airline All Nippon Airways (ANA), with the recently announced “Sky Whale.”
