Sony Producer Would Like to Bring Wild Arms to PS4 and PS Vita, at Work on Unannounced Game

on April 3, 2014 5:25 AM

The latest issue of Weekly Famitsu has been delivered to the Japanese newsstands, and it includes an interesting Q&A with Sony Computer Entertainment Producer Kentaro Motomura, who worked as a Producer on the Wild Arms franchise from the third game onwards and on other classics like Jeanne d’Arc and the recent Soul Sacrifice.

Talking about the Wild Arms series, that ranked second behind Final Fantasy in a poll on the magazine asking readers what series they’d like to see a sequel for, Motomura-san mentioned that he’d definitely like to explore the possibility of one day bringing the adventures of the “migratory birds” to PS4 and PS Vita, also asking readers to support the idea.

“Migratory birds,” or “Wataridori” is the original name of Wild Arms‘ adventurers.

Motomura-san also added that he can’t talk about his next game yet. All he can say is that it’s not finished.

Interestingly enough, Wild Arms has been recently brought up by Sony Japan with a series of crossover illustrations between PlayStation feline mascots Toro and Kuro, Wild Arms Alter Code F and Wild Arms XF, released to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the release of Dokodemo Issho and the 20th anniversary of PlayStation. You can see them in the gallery below, courtesy of the official Japanese Play Community.
