In a post made by CEO Markus Pukropski on the PlayStation Blog, Rainbow Skies is an indirect sequel to Rainbow Moon. Fans of the first game can expect a new setting, new characters, new monsters, and a completely new story unrelated to Rainbow Moon. In addition, Rainbow Skies will take place over two parallel worlds, with 50 dedicated background music tracks and an impressive “strong visual variety”.
As for the game’s new features, he promised there will be more variety such as: monster tamings, advanced battle system with new combo attacks, new dungeon action elements, a new dialogue and emoticon system, new treasure hunt quest, an improve side quest system, explorable buildings, and a plethora of mini-games.
Rainbow Skies will be available on both the PS3 and PS Vita sometime next year in 2014.
