While speaking with EDGE, Goichi Suda (Suda51) shared new details on his new mysterious title. The game is a new IP, will offer unique online functionality, started development in November, and is due out next year.
Suda51 said: “This is going to be an action game obviously but the gameplay style is going to differ very much – it’ll be unique. This is a title that GungHo Japan and Grasshopper Manufacture is working on together collaboratively so there will be an online feature, because that’s their forte and what they specialise in. On the simplest level it will be social, but the word social is used and misinterpreted a lot these days. GungHo has over ten years of experience in providing online gaming services so that is their strength.”
“Of course it’s an action game and it’ll be on console platforms. We’re considering various console platforms right now. Naturally we are interested in developing games for the next-gen platforms. We are investigating the specs and all that right now.”
