Kadokawa Games Will Announce Two New Home Console Games in 2017 After God Wars

on December 29, 2016 5:14 PM

Kadokawa Games has become, over the past couple of years, and increasingly prominent publisher in Japan, even thanks to the acquisition of Dark Souls developer From Software. President Yoshimi Yasuda, who is currently directing the company’s strategy RPG God Wars: Future Past, offered a glimpse on the company’s plans for the future in an interview on 4Gamer.

“About God Wars: Future Past, we will work steadily to respond to the requests from users so that they can enjoy it in a perfect playing environment. About home [console] games, following God Wars: Future Past, we plan to announce two titles in 2017.

Furthermore, we’re planning to announce new titles even among smartphone games. Thank you for your patronage in 2017 as well.”

Yasuda-san did not provide any hint on what the games he teased might be about, but he did express interest in possibly developing for Nintendo Switch in the past. On top of that, back at Tokyo Game Show we heard from Root Letter director Zin Hasegawa that the company aimed to create a Kadokawa Mystery franchise following the game, so that might be a possibility as well, even if this is just speculation.

God Wars : Future Past will launch in spring 2017 in Japan for PS4 and PS Vita, with a following western release some time early next year. If you want to read more about it directly from Yasuda-san, you can check out our recent interview.
