A bit more from Gematsu:

Mistwalker founder Hironobu Sakaguchi shared concept artwork from an unannounced title during a creative media master class at UH West Oʻahu Library in Hawaii.

The artwork is illustrated by Kimihiko Fujisaka.

According to Twitter user @VoltySquirrel (2, 3, 4, 5), Sakaguchi didn’t reveal too much about the title, other than that it’ll probably be a current-gen console release and that he wants the art style to be sketchy while still being 3D, with visible pencil lines and such. He said he’ll probably be able to fully reveal the game in a year.

That's awesome news that Sakaguchi intends to continue making larger scale games in the future. I look forward to the reveal in the future.

This is one of the few times where I don't mind mobile actually. Terra Battle is rather enjoyable. But if it's not mobile, I will be so happy.

looks great whatever it is!

hope is console but considering how good Terra Battle is, I'm fine with mobile if the gameplay is as addicting.

"Been there done that" artstyle.

Looks decent but looks like I've seen before. That DS game. Also, other games before it. Yep, generic japanese drawings.

It's probably gonna be good, enjoyed the Last Story on Wii despite it's shortcomings.
 

ULTROS!

People seem to like me because I am polite and I am rarely late. I like to eat ice cream and I really enjoy a nice pair of slacks.

I wonder if it'll be on PS4 this time around. I remember Sakaguchi being in bad terms with Kutaragi hence the rumor that Mistwalker will never develop for a Sony console or something.

Nice! I hope that he returns to home consoles, or even handhelds. I'm expecting something graphically similar to Project Setsuna which is fine by me.

He may, at this point, just be looking for a publisher/funding support for consoles.

I hope this is a game with the same kind of scale like in Lost Odyssey or The Last Story.

The art looks pretty good to me. I can't wait to find out more about this game.

The concept looks nice. Would love if this is for consoles, but they would need a developer to actually make it, probably.

Hope they can find one

There's also the fact that Mistwalker formed with the financial backing of Microsoft.

I'm down for more Sakaguchi stuff. Really sad that he's been wasting his talent on mobile stuff.

Even mobile is appreciated, as long as it has some charm to it. Terra Battle was pleasant. However, I'm frothy at the mouth for another Sakaguchi console game.

Xbox One exclusive?

I think thuway said something about it on twitter around 2 years ago.

Hopefully not single platform exclusive. This would effectively kill his new game. I hope for the sake of Mistwalker that this isn't the case. It better be PS4/Xbox One, with an eventual PC release.
