To quote Daniel Bryan, “YES! YES! YES!”
SideQuest Studios and eastasiasoft just announced a new RPG coming to consoles and handhelds in late 2014 called Rainbow Skies.
Why is this such good news? Because these are the people responsible for the amazing RPG on PSN (PS3, coming to Vita this year) Rainbow Moon. And as the name implies, this is the follow up. What does that mean? It means more awesomeness is inbound in 2014.
Seriously, I love Rainbow Moon. It’s a gorgeous old-school RPG. You can read my review of it here, where I gave it a 9 out of 10 (on our scale today, it’d be an easy 4/4).
“Built on Rainbow Moon’s system, Rainbow Skies is a completely new game that is set in a new world with new characters and a new story,” said Marcus Pukropski, CEO of SideQuest Studios. “A lot of feedback has been taken into consideration and we are confident that Rainbow Skies will offer an even deeper and more versatile gameplay experience, while staying absolutely true to its roots. We can’t wait to show more of Rainbow Skies to our fans.”
And I can’t wait to see it!
Rainbow Skies is currently in early development with an expected release date of late 2014 for “consoles and handhelds.” No specifics on the consoles, but I’ll be happy so long as its PS4 and PS Vita.
Here’s a list of new features you can expect in Rainbow Skies, as taken from the press release:
- Monsters can be caught, upgraded, and become part of the player’s party
- An advanced battle system with new combo attacks
- New treasure-hunt quests and an improved side quest system
- Various buildings can be entered and explored
- A lot of new and exciting dungeon elements
- New mini games
- Tons of new and exciting content that will keep gamers hooked
