Imageepoch working on new HD RPG

Imageepoch is one of Japan’s newer role-playing game powerhouses; the Tokyo-based developer has already put out hits such as Arc Rise Fantasia for Wii and Last Ranker for PSP. While they have a number of titles currently in development, including Black Rock Shooter and Final Promise Story for PSP, they’ve yet to formally announce a full-fledged high-definition title. That’s soon to change.

Company CEO, Ryoei Mikage, wrote on Twitter that he’d met with a major publisher today to show off a new prototype. The prototype was approved and will move into full production. According to Mikage, it’s an HD role-playing game due to release sometime between Fall and Winter of 2012.

Last November, Imageepoch held a press conference announcing their presence in the gaming industry. There they confirmed their currently announced games, as well as a series of other projects currently under codenames. One of the five projects is a collaboration with Sega. However, since that game is due to release this year, it’s unlikely that it’s the game Mikage is speaking of in his tweet.

Thanks, Andriasang.
