Supergiant Games has quickly built a reputation for creating unique RPG experiences that play to our collective nostalgia, but innovate.
A difficult balance to strike.
Looks like their newly announced game, Pyre, will follow in those footsteps.
Supergiant Games is describing it as a "party-based role-playing game", so along the lines of a 16-bit JRG by the looks. It seems like it might be a little bit influenced by Fire Emblem in terms of relationships between in-game characters. A real strength of Supergiant is their ability to tell stories in really unique ways, so I'm keen to find out how that all works. A western-style interpretation of Fire Emblem mechanics seems like a super good idea to me.

Pyre is set for release in 2017 on PlayStation 4.
