Shinichi Kameoka is well known among JRPG fans as the man behind the distinctive art style of the Mana series. In recent years, he has worked mainly on portable games, culminating with his mobile JRPG Egglia: the Legend of the Redcap, launched in 2017 with his new studio Brownies.
Yet, it appears that he is finally going back to consoles. As part of a massive New Year group interview on the Japanese website 4Gamer, Kameoka-san explained that in 2018 he will return to an old-style console title after a long time. He thinks that information about it will be released by the end of the year.
Kameoka-san also encouraged fans to look forward to the announcement, as it might be something unexpected.
For those who love Egglia, he also promised that updates and events for the mobile game will continue next year.
We recently met Kameoka-san himself at Brownies’ headquarters in Kichjoji, Tokyo, and if you want to read more about his work work and Egglia itself, you can check out our recent interview.
