Fans of the Wild Arms series have been hoping for a new game for a while, and during a live broadcast hosted by Sony from the Tokaigi Japan Games Party 2015 Producer Kentaro Motomura mentioned something that could make many smile.
Motomura-san read a message from Producer Akifumi Kaneko mentioning that that no matter how small, Wild Arms’ fire has not been extinguished, while he continues working independently behind the scenes. The positive reaction of the fans to yesterday’s livestream, he added, could become a wind to feed that fire, concluding by expressing his gratitude for the support from the fans even in 2015.
Motomura-san also added his own take on the issue:
I understand that a new game has been expected for a while. We haven’t said “Wild Arms is finished,” because we have no intention to quit. We want to bring it back in some way, eventually. If possible, I’d like to make an announcement as soon as the opportunity arises, so I hope you can be patient.
While this isn’t an official announcement, it definitely helps in keeping that fire going. Personally, I would absolutely love to see another Wild Arms on current generation consoles, and I’m quite sure I’m not the only one.
