It's not a surprise that we're beginning to see more Square games that use cool 3D graphics, but who'd have thought they'd be utilized in a fighting game!? Tobal I is the result of Square's continuous exploration of new technology, which has spilled into new genres for the company.
The character designs are handled by none other than the God of Manga, AkiraToriyama of Dragon Ball Z fame, who also added his touch to Chrono Trigger. Tl is being kept under tight wraps and little information is available apart from the fact that the characters seen here will eventually be beating each other for some reason or another.
So what's next for Square? A 3D shooter? How about Square sports? Actually, the move to fighting games isn't outrageous when you consider that this is a company looking to expand in many formats.
RPGs are big, but why not play it safe with a fighting game with broader appeal? So should we prepare for yet another generic 3D fighter I for the Play-Station? Not if I Square has any-I thing to do with I it. People in the I know point to features never before seen in a fighting game that will distinguish Tl, like a possible RPG link and long story mode.
It remains to be seen how Tobal I will be received, what with the likes of VF3 currently running around.
