Marvelous’ First Studio is seeking staff to bolster the planning and development of “high-end next-generation games” for platforms including PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series, the company announced.
First Studio has developed a number of notable titles thus far, including:
Daemon X Machina (2019)
Fate/EXTELLA Link (2018)
God Eater 3 (2018) for Bandai Namco Entertainment
Soul Sacrifice Delta (2014) for Sony Interactive Entertainment
Soul Sacrifice (2013) for Sony Interactive Entertainment
The studio currently has several new projects underway—mainly action games and RPGs—including a “brand-new large-scale RPG.”

Surprised to see another studio commit to a bigger budget PS/Xbox/PC only JRPG release. While PC gaming has steadily grown in Japan and Switch has exploded, PS has a shrinking install base and Xbox is nonexistent in the market. Disappointing we likely won't see this on Switch but I am glad to see that big budget JRPGs aren't dead. I hope to see the market continue to grow.
