Hironobu Sakaguchi shares old concept trailer for Cry On

Cry On, an ill-fated role-playing game co-developed by Mistwalker and now-defunct studio Cavia, has reappeared after being put on ice six years ago.

Final Fantasy creator and Mistwalker founder Hironobu Sakaguchi shared the shelved project's original concept trailer via his seldom used YouTube channel today, showing some promising footage of a young girl and golem companion.

This marks the sixth anniversary of Cry On's cancellation in 2008, when publisher AQ Interactive announced the decision on Christmas Day, citing poor global economic conditions as the rationale.

Mistwalker has since gone on to create The Last Story and Terra Battle, whereas both Cavia and AQ Interactive have been absorbed into Japanese videogame and anime group Marvelous.

Sakaguchi's motives behind uploading the video are currently unclear, as is whether the project lives on as anything other than memory. Speaking with Destructoid back in September, Sakaguchi said "Mistwalker is just working on [Terra Battle] right now," adding the company has a fairly small team these days. Wonder if anything's changed since then.
