Kaz Ayabe wants to make a new Boku no Natsuyasumi game for PlayStation 4 [Update]

"However, I don't want to do that without practicing."

Boku no Natsuyasumi 3

Update: As it turns out, this “latest issue” we mention is from June 2013. An oversight on my part. Even so, that doesn’t change the fact that Ayabe is interested in a new Boku no Natsuyasumi for PlayStation 4.

Original: Millennium Kitchen boss Kaz Ayabe wants to make a new Boku no Natsuyasumi (My Summer Vacation) game for PlayStation 4, he told the latest issue of Scroll.

“That’s actually something I want to do in the future,” Ayabe said when asked about the possibility of a new entry for PlayStation 4. “However, I don’t want to do that without practicing, so I feel like I want a ‘practice’ title. If I could come up with a plan for a good practice title like that, then I would do it.”

The latest entry in the Sony-owned Boku no Natsuyasumi series, which are about a boy on his summer vacation, was Boku no Natsuyasumi 4 for PSP. PlayStation 3 got its own taste of the franchise with Boku no Natsuyasumi 3.

Ayabe’s latest game, Attack of the Friday Monsters: A Tokyo Tale for 3DS, combines the summer vacation aspect of Boku no Natsuyasumi with the fantasy of kaiju. Elsewhere in the issue, Ayabe said he would also like to further explore the fantasy genre, as well as create a girls’ version of a vacation game set in the winter.
