Playdek has released a brand new update on the Kickstarter page for its game Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians. The latest update, answers a lot of questions fans have about this game being made by several principles that worked on such hit Japanese tactical strategy titles as Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre. More importantly, Playdek is almost near its funding goal of $600,000, but the campaign only has a little over two days to raise the $90,669 it needs to get fully funded.
Unsung Story is being developed by Playdek and two key Japanese developers: Yasumi Matsuno and Akihiko Yoshido. Matsuno is best known as the man who designed the ultra popular tactical RPG Final Fantasy Tactics, but he has also worked on several popular Japanese RPGs including Final Fantasy XII and Vagrant Story. Yoshida is an artist who has worked on such hits as Vagrant Story, Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII, and the recently released Bravely Default.
These seasoned veterans will work with Playdek, who have worked (collectively) at such studios as THQ, SCEA, Incinerator Games, Rockstar, and Interplay over the years.

Once the initial $600,000 funding goal is met a number of stretch goals promise to bring in even more talent including Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy XII composer Hitoshi Sakimoto, localization expert and transcriber Alexander O. Smith (he helped localize such games as Vagrant Story, Final Fantasy XII, and Crimson Shroud), and localization expert Joseph Reeder (who has worked on a number of Matsuno's games).
