Drakengard Director Can’t Use Kickstarter for Drakengard 4 on PS4; Might Make a Spin-off One Day

After mentioning that he’d like to make Drakengard 4 on PS4, but he’s unable to because he lacks the funds for development, Drakengard 3 Director Taro Yoko received a large number of messages expressing support and enthusiasm, many of which suggesting the use of Kickstarter.

He replied on Facebook, explaining why Kickstarter is not an option for him, encouraging fans to address Square Enix directly with that kind of request.

Thank you for your offer.
Offcourse money is very important. But, I also need good development team and good producers. You know. 

And Drakengard and NIER is not my IP. These titles are SquareEnix’s IP. I can’t decide anything about that. Best solution for this problem is you post to SquareEnix’s official account.

Thank you anyway. I am happy to read your message.

But be carefull. YokoTaro is could be Terrible GameCreator(ATGC). Anytime, Any platform.

Then the conversation continued on Twitter, with an user asking, between others, if it wouldn’t be cheaper to make a spin-off of the series using the Drakengard 3 engine, maybe on PS Vita:

@Ogechiogbe I will make spin off game someday. If I will get a chance.

Previously he did mention that he plans to make something new this year:

Thank you. I will make new something this year.

Personally, as a Drakengard fan since the first game, I’m eagerly waiting to see what Yoko-san’s next game will be, no matter the platform.

    we already know that Square Enix has the IP.

    i do hope they have a good faith and make another one on PS4. i think the game was in top 10 on its first week in Japan no?

      I think Square is most likely waiting to see how it performs in the west to decide . The game was doing fine in Japan sure , but maybe they’ve got other ambitions to greenlight a sequel

    What was the name of SEs kickstarter thingamajiga? Not that it matters but if the game results in fair profits in the west as well as in Japan I reckon we will we it materialized.

    There is a lot of concern with making titles like Drakengard in Japan, as the audience there has greatly shifted to a more casual style of gaming. Drakengard is very far from casual in theme and gameplay.
