SQUARE ENIX is one of the most famous Japanese game companies in India and the world. Recently, we introduced their new mobile game released for the Indian audience.
During the SQUARE ENIX PRESENTS digital-showcase event, they announced Forspoken™, the debut title from its newly established studio, Luminous Productions. Also, the team announced that Ella Balinska, best known for her starring role in the 2019 film Charlie’s Angels, will perform the game’s protagonist, Frey.
What is Forspoken?
Originally revealed as PROJECT ATHIA last year, Forspoken puts players in Frey Holland’s shoes, an ordinary young woman who must harness her magical abilities to survive in a fantastic and dangerous land called Athia.
The game’s a narrative-driven adventure, and Luminous Productions develop it. The studio’s philosophy is to create gameplay experiences that combine the latest technology with unbridled creativity – and that’s a pretty accurate way to describe their new game.
What is Forspoken about?
Frey takes center stage in Forspoken, exploring an unknown world and facing treacherous trials to unravel the mystery behind Athia. SQUARE ENIX also teased new Forspoken gameplay to give players a glimpse at the magical and perilous journey ahead. You can get a glimpse of the dangers she’ll face in the new trailer:
Ella Balinska’s comment
Actor Ella Balinska to Star in the Game as Lead Character, Frey Holland. Frey takes center stage in Forspoken, exploring an unknown world and facing treacherous trials to unravel the mystery behind Athia.
As the first video game I’ve worked on and growing up a huge fan of video games myself, it’s remarkable to see the incredible world and story of Forspoken come together, blurring the lines between reality and fantasy,” said Balinska. “Frey as a character is real, she’s raw, she’s a girl who lost her way—both figuratively and literally—and is a character I immediately connected with, as I feel many people around the world will too when they set off on this adventure.
