Silicon Studio, developer of the popular Bravely Default series with Square Enix, recently announced its new mobile RPG, Grand Sphere. It is heavy on the story element, with players starting off in the world known as Astrum, where elves, humans and more exist. Each living organism has an energy known as “sphere”, and a large amount is known as “grand sphere”, which is found in very few.
While the storyline is more about leading the 5 main characters, as a party, travelling the Astrum, players are free to collect various characters to form their teams. Combat is really simple – sliding a character image up will trigger a skill attack, while sliding down will activate the “sphere” (when conditions are met), which is the ultimate. Grand Sphere will be launching this summer in Japan.
