Final Fantasy XV’s director is making the first-ever Paralympics video game
Final Fantasy XV director Hajime Tabata unexpectedly left Square Enix five months ago, citing “a project that I truly wish to solidify as my next challenge.” Now that project has been revealed, and no-one could ever have guessed what it would be. Developed by Tabata’s new studio JP Games, The Pegasus Dream Tour is a fantasy sports RPG that also happens to be the first-ever officially licensed Paralympics video game.
The Pegasus Dream Tour sees players awakening special abilities to take part in an alternate version of the Paralympic Games set in a fictional metropolis called Pegasus City. The project is designed to raise interest in Paralympic sport ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Games.
