Unannounced PS4 Game in the Works at Nippon Ichi, to be Unveiled at TGS; “Good Start” for PS4 in Japan

Nippon Ichi Software has a whole three games in development for PS3 at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that the company isn’t looking at the next generation, as stated by President Shohei Niikawa during an interview on 4Gamer.

Of course, we’re developing a Title for PlayStation 4. I think we’re going to announce it at Tokyo Game Show.

Niikawa-san continued by saying that the new game is a secret, but it’s “a title most would expect.” He also added that in Japan some developers think it’s a little early to switch to the next generation, but looking at the world, it’s time to change focus to the PS4.

According to Niikawa-san the console is off to a good start in Japan and the shift to the new generation might happen faster than many have expected. That’s happening because many have been waiting for a new experience with the raise of the new hardware, and Nippon-Ichi wants to do a proper release  for those that have been looking forward to that. Unfortunately that’s not possible for the current fiscal year, but it’ll come with the next alongside plenty other games.

Considering the fact that Nippon Ichi Software is probably the most consistent PlayStation-exclusive developer in Japan, it’s not surprising to see that they’re working on PlayStation 4. Unfortunately no further details were shared on the nature of the title (even if I’m quite sure most of us are already guessing something that starts with a “Dis” and ends with a “Gaea,”) but the cogs are spinning, and of course you can expect any further information to be covered here on DualShockers.
