It was at the end of last year when Hajima Tabata left Square Enix and Luminous Productions to then begin his own studio, JP Games. The latest project now in the work is The Pegasus Dream Tour.
The title is described as a “completely new sports role-playing game”, in The Pegasus Dream Tour players will take on the role of a para-athlete who sets out to compete in the Paralympic Games. This is set in an fantasy metropolis known as Pegasus City, where players awaken with special abilities know as “Xtra Power”. The game will be “accessible on various platforms” which includes mobile.
Habata outlines on the Paralympics website that he wants to make a unique brand of RPG, not only spotlighting the Paralympic Games but adding to gaming industry:
JP Games is going to represent fully the wonders that are unique to Paralympic sports in this brand-new role-playing game – a genre we excel in. With this video game, we want to contribute to the future growth of the Paralympic Games, not just as a sporting event, but as entertainment as well, with contents that we hope will have lasting value in the future.
There is currently no release date for Pegasus Dream Tour but it is expected to release before the 2020 Tokyo Olympic/Paralympic Games.
