Fantasian has been downloaded almost a million times by subscribers to Apple Arcade, Apple’s subscription service dedicated to video games. To unveil it was Hironobu Sakaguchi, the head of Mistwalker, the game development studio and historical name of the Japanese video game industry.
Fantasian debuted in April 2021 with the first part, and was then completed in August 2021 with the second. Sakaguchi has not revealed the actual number of downloads, but it seems he is very satisfied with the result obtained, so much so that he shared a photo of a statuette created by the artist Jun Ikeda to celebrate.
Honestly, it is difficult to quantify Fantasian’s success, as it should be calculated in relation to the number of Apple Arcade subscribers and the expectations of developers and publishers, but developer satisfaction is certainly a good index.
Mistwalker recently released a big update of Fantasian, which adds a lot contents to the already vast game.
