Wow. As if Oceanhorn wasn’t enough of a reason to get excited about console-style RPG gaming on iOS, along comes the bizarrely-titled Wonder Flick from Level-5.
Level-5 is developing Wonder Flick, a new “1000-hour” fantasy RPG for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Wii U, PS Vita, iOS, and Android, the company announced during its Level-5 Vision press conference in Shinagawa.
The game, which features music from Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu, will have shared save data across every platform, and exclusive dungeons on each.
It is being planned, produced, and directed by Level-5 boss Akihiro Hino, features boss monster design by Professor Layton and Inazuma Eleven‘s Tokuzo Nagano, and character design by Final Fantasy XIII sub-character designer Nao Ikeda.
Players will be able to create their own character, journey the field map, visit towns, advance dungeons, go on quests, and battle monsters in flick-based combat.
In addition to helping compose the score for Oceanhorn, Nobuo Uematsu (Final Fantasy) is also working on Wonder Flick. And more Uematsu is always a good thing.
As for the unusual title? Well, you “flick” the enemies to attack, as you can see in the gameplay video below…
