Quite a few things seem to be brewing at Capcom, at least if we believe what said by a few relevant developers as part of a massive end of year group interview on 4Gamer.
Deep Down Producer and Director of the Second Development Department Kazunori Sugiura explained that while many titles were announced in 2013, there are some more that didn’t make it this year, and will be announced in 2014, and those will “surprise the readers a lot.”
Sugiura-san also encouraged fans to look forward to next year, because Capcom intends to reaffirm its presence in the fighting genre.
Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara Producer Kenji Kataoka also mentioned that another classic from Capcom’s history will be revived by the end of 2014, but he can’t say what it’ll be yet. He did specify that an announcement will be made when it’ll get a bit warmer.
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney 1-3 and Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Director Shu Takumi also said that his new title will be announced next year.
Finally Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies Director Takeshi Yamazaki mentioned that the team is now working full force on the next title, even if things are just getting started.
Looks like Capcom fans have a lot to look forward to next year, and especially Ace Attorney fans, with both Takumi-san and Yamazaki’s team working on one or more new titles (it wasn’t specified whether they’re working on the same title or on different ones).
Of course we’ll keep our feelers out, and we’ll let you know as soon as we receive more information.
