Two weeks ago Sony Computer Entertainment Producer Kentaro Motomura told Weekly Famitsu that he’d like to explore the possibility to bring the Wild Arms franchise to PS4 and PS Vita.
Yesterday night, with very convenient timing, Motomura-san, that is currently producer of Soul Sacrifice Delta and covered the same role in every Wild Arms game from the third onward, appeared in a live broadcast on Nico Nico announcing a crossover event between Soul Sacrifice Delta and Wild Arms.
The initiative will allow players to choose which items from the Wild Arms franchise will be implemented in Delta, and in the gallery below you can see a series of pictures representing those items, from Rudy’s “bandana set” to Knight Blazer’s armor.
This is the second crossover involving Wild Arms in a few days. The first was one with Dokodemo Issho to celebrate the 20th anniversary of PlayStation.
Personally, the only reason I can see for Sony to suddenly bring back a franchise that didn’t see a new game since 2007 in two crossovers in a row, is that the gears might really be grinding behind the scene for something bigger. Maybe Motomura’s wish to bring the series to PS Vita and PS4 wasn’t just a pipe dream.
