Furthermore, the soundtrack is composed by Yoko Shimomura, who previously worked on Final Fantasy XV and the Kingdom Hearts series (not that she really needs an introduction).
Here are more details about the game:
Originally released in Japan earlier this year, Egglia: Legend of the Redcap quickly rose up the charts, hitting #2 on the App Store and #1 in the RPG category* Hailed for its development pedigree, high production value, deep gameplay and classic RPG style, the game delivers a wonderful, nostalgic experience on the mobile platform.
In Egglia: Legend of the Redcap, players follow the story of a gentle elf named Chabo who mysteriously falls from the sky and arrives on the continent of Egglia. Players will uncover the mystery of Chabo and Egglia as they explore and uncover new areas of the world sealed away within eggs. Players will develop the world of Egglia through building houses, summoning spirits, warding off monsters and forming alliances with other races. Once all of Egglia has been restored, players can continuously explore and build throughout the world and new episodes are planned for future release.
