Gran Saga soundtrack composer Shimomura Yoko has enlisted K-Pop sensation Taeyeon of Girl’s Generation to sing the opening theme. Shimomura is best known for her work in Final Fantasy XV and the Kingdom Hearts series. “A Step Faster Than Destiny” is composed by Shimomura with vocal backing by Taeyeon.
In an interview that is available on the game website, Shimomura talks about her inspiration for the title theme, stating that the beautiful graphics and vibrant lore had extended itself to the overall feeling and theme of the song. Pre-registrations for the game made before 13 November 2020 will be eligible for a raffle to win a limited edition Gran Saga OST which includes the opening theme.
To reiterate, Gran Saga will be telling a story of a knight who departs on an adventure to save the kingdom from the dragon’s curse. During their announcement, they only released their banner and their company image. NPIXEL will be using Unreal Engine 4 with, quote, unquote, ‘Console-Level-Graphics’ and ‘Epic Narratives’.
Production values seem to be very high just judging from the trailer alone, but how that translates into the actual gameplay remains to be seen. While solo content is the focus here, the game also encourages some form of party play as well. The trailer does not provide anything that could be of use in guessing what the final product will entail, so we are just going to have to take a shot in the dark and make predictions. Regardless, the fact that it is available on the two aforementioned platforms suggest that some form of crossplay would be possible. Grinding on the go is definitely a welcomed feature particularly for an MMO, where doing so is essentially the modus operandi.
