A derivation of the classic Wizard's Harmony series.

Wizard's Symphony

The RPG project Arc System Works teased earlier this week is “dramatic dungeon RPG” Wizard’s Symphony for PlayStation 4 and Switch, the company announced. It will launch in Japan in 2018.

Wizard’s Symphony derives from a classic Arc System Works series called Wizard’s Harmony. First launched in 1995 for PlayStation and Sega Saturn, Wizard’s Harmony is an adventure and training simulation game set in a fantasy world of swords and magic. It was followed up by Wizard’s Harmony 2 in 1997, Wizard’s Harmony R in 1998, and Wizard’s Harmony Reprint in 1999.

Character design for Wizard’s Symphony is being handled by Moo, who previously did character designs for Wizard’s Harmony.
