Rampage Land Rankers

Square Enix and HexaDrive are working on a new free-to-play smartphone title called Rampage Land Rankers (artwork pictured in upper right), this week’s Famitsu reveals.

Due out next month in Japan, the game is an RPG that sees players join the “Rankers Union” adventurers organization and explore dungeons.

Mitsunori Takahashi, who directed the Dissidia Final Fantasy PSP series, is directing the smartphone game, while Tetsuya Nomura is doing character designs.

Dungeons are laid out in a board game-esque style, with players traversing them using cards that have numbers on them denoting the number of steps they can take, similar to Metal Gear Acid.

Dungeons are automatically generated, with characters being strengthened via cards they can garner from treasure chests and as rewards for ranking up, among other means. The parameters of the cards you obtain in treasure chests are determined at random.

When exploring dungeons, you can share information with other players. You can also team up for battles.

There wlll also be a card fusion system to strengthen and evolve your cards.

Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
