Project Athia from Square Enix was designed exclusivly for PS5

This new Square Enix title looks to take players on an epic fantasy journey.

The reveal trailer for Project Athia gives players a glimpse into what kind of world they can expect to explore in Square Enix’s new title. It would appear as if players take on the role of a female character experiencing some kind of high-fantasy world full of dangerous beasts.

One perhaps interesting titbit picked up from the trailer is that the character is seen wearing tennis shoes. This would seem to indicate the world is set within one like our own, as opposed to a full fantasy setting. However, the trailer also reveals she’s in a world not her own, so maybe some kind of dimension-hopping has occurred.

It’s also worth noting that when developers use the word “Project” in a title, it is often a working title. This means Project Athia likely is not the final title and we could see one announced at some point in the future.
