Japanese game makers discuss plans for 2013

Comments from Compile Heart, CC2, D3P, Sony, and more.

Famitsu this week features an interview with several Japanese game companies on their plans for 2013. Unfortunately, there is a lack of Atlus teasing Persona 5 for the 10th time. But there are these:

  • Aquaplus: In 2013, there are plans to release one title after another.
  • Aquire: 2013 will continue to bring challenges.
  • Compile Heart / Idea Factory: A new title in a popular series, of course something new that exceeds the imagination, is being prepared.
  • CyberConnect2: 2013 will have Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: All-Star Battle, Night Runner (tentative), and more.
  • D3 Publisher: 2013 lineup includes Smakare, Storm Lover 2nd, Vitamin Z: Gradation, Vitamin R, Dream Club Host Girl Collection, Dream Club Zero Special Edipyon!, Puzzle Royale, Earth Defense Force 2025, Dream Club New Shop Np5, and Onechanbara Z: Kagura (A re-release? New platforms?).
  • Ganbarion: New projects will be announced.
  • Imageepoch: They are preparing to publish their fourth and fifth titles.
  • SNK Playmore: 2013 will mark a great charge for Metal Slug.
  • Sony Computer Entertainment Japan: 2013 will be a bright new year and they will deliver surprising entertainment to everyone.
