Dragon’s Dogma Director Wants to Make a Sequel on PS4, Also Rival Schools 3 and Devil May Cry 5

Dragon’s Dogma Game Director Hideaki Itsuno has quite a few ideas for the future, not only for the Dragon’s Dogma franchise but also for a few other beloved Capcom IPs, as he mentioned in a recent interview on the Japanese Play Community website when asked about the possibility of a direct sequel to his latest game

In my head, I have a story and setting for the next one, but it’s not one that can be easily done… (laughs). For example, voices say “coming for PS4!” and it seems to happen quite a whole lot. The possibility to be able to make it might to be growing (laughs).

In addition to that, I want to also make a miniature garden simulation, as well as make more games for (established) series such as “Rival Schools 3” and “Devil May Cry 5.” Later on, I would even like to make a game that captures authentic fighting and, such as Street Fighter II did, to develop a new genre of fighting games.

Inside of me there are a lot of things I want to make, and because there are already concepts, there might be a chance! I have this feeling (laughs).

A sequel of Dragon’s Dogma on next generation consoles would be definitely interesting. Many identified Deep Down as a spiritual successor, but since the upcoming PS4 exclusive is a free to play online RPG, the nature of the two games is very different.

What piques my curiosity even more is that Itsuno-san isn’t the first prominent developer at Capcom to name drop a possible sequel for the classic PlayStation/Dreamcast Rival Schools (Justice Gakuen in Japan) fighting series lately. Producer Yoshinori Ono did as well just a month ago.

At that time I thought Ono-san was joking, but now I wonder…
