The Japanese video game developer Square Enix, best known for the hugely popular F&SF franchise Final Fantasy, has created a webpage teasing a new role-playing game for the Apple Watch, Cosmos Rings.

The screenshot appears to show a figure carrying a sword and running through a virtual tunnel.

Final Fantasy is one of the world’s most successful video game franchises, selling more than 115M units. A number of iOS versions of the game are available on iTunes.
