Silicon Studio, developer of the popular Bravely Default series with Square Enix, has launched Grand Sphere, its latest mobile RPG, for both iOS and Android devices in its native Japan. Players start 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”, 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. There is currently no detail on an overseas launch.
