Digital tabletop developer Playdek announced a collaboration with legendary designer Yasumi Matsuno to create a fantasy game, called Untold Story: Tale of the Guardians.
Matsuno will be creating a medieval fantasy setting, called Rasfalia, a world of knights, wizards, archers and magical creatures which Playdek can develop games for.
Untold Story: Tale of the Guardians is a tactics style game that Matsuno will oversee and design down in the future. A prequel card battle game set in the same universe, designed by French board game designer Christophe Boelinger, will be released in 2014. The card battle game will introduce Rasfalia and can be played online between two players.
Most of Playdek's prior games are based on existing licenses, this will be one of their first new titles.
Matsuno is the designer of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story and contributed to Final Fantasy XII.
