  • As per the developer, many fans of the franchise have requested the team to release the game on PC, and Sakaguchi is open to it.
  • The prospect of a sequel was also discussed by the Final Fantasy creator, suggesting a new Fantasian release in the future. 
  • However, we suggest taking the news with a grain of salt as Hironobu Sakaguchi has not officially confirmed the sequel and the PC port.

A PC port of Apple Arcade exclusive Fantasian seems imminent, as reported by IGN Japan in a new interview with the Final Fantasy creator. Hironobu Sakaguchi appeared at the Magic 2023 festival held in Monaco, where the former Square Enix developer participated in a Q&A session to recall his legacy.

Hironobu Sakaguchi discussed the prospect of a PC version, noting popular fan demand while answering a query. He is well aware of Fantasian’s popularity and interest of the PC community in the game, and the team is thinking about bringing the title to the platform after the exclusivity eventually ceases to exist.

Moreover, the possibility of a sequel for the stellar turn-based RPG was also discussed. The likelihood of a new game is entirely possible because of fan requests. Thus, a sequel for the beautiful diorama-based Fantasian may soon go into the brewer. Hironobu Sakaguchi has shown deep interest in pursuing the franchise in the future.

There are many requests to release it on PC, and we have also received requests for a sequel, so I would like to continue to work as hard as possible, […] Fantasian is a title that we want people to see a little more,” articulated Hironobu Sakaguchi in the interview.

However, nothing official concerning the sequel has yet been confirmed by Sakaguchi, as noted in the interview. So, we suggest anticipating the release of a new Fantasian with a grain of salt for now until any official announcements are made.

Fantasian is a breathtaking RPG that blends turn-based combat elements with enthralling visuals, featuring nearly 160 handmade dioramas and physical environments alongside 3D characters to make the experience feel like charming eye candy. Moreover, it is an absolute blast to play because of its enjoyable and innovative aspects. 

Fantasian’s release in 2021 has been held back from growth due to the Apple Arcade exclusivity, which has stopped the game from launching on other popular media. Many fans, especially PC gamers, have requested the developer to release it on the platform. We could finally see the arrival of the popular JRPG on PC in the future.
