While Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX is this week’s big JRPG release,There is another title coming out today that pays homage to the SNES days of gaming: Dragon Fantasy Book II.
The original Dragon Fantasy was developed for ios and PC, but after involvement from Sony Computer Entertainment America’s Pub Fund (an organization that helps fund smaller-budget titles), it was announced the sequel would be released on the Playstation Network for PS3 and Vita.
The title plays a lot like Chrono Trigger. It also shares a similar art style with other famous JRPG’s from the 16-bit era (Final Fantasy VI, Secret of Evermore). The art style seems to be faithful to its inspirations.
Dragon Fantasy Book II is not the first title to be brought in by the SCEA Pub Fund. Certain Canadian titles such as Papa & Yo and the impressive Guacamelee were both funded by the pub fund.
Dragon Fantasy Book II is available today for $14.99 on the Playstation Network.
