During an interview after the event, Famitsu asked the producer whether he’s gotten requests for a sequel during his fan promotional tours.
“Whether or not we can make a sequel cannot be decided by my intentions alone,” Yoshizawa said. “But in the end, it’s important for players to speak up so we can know if that demand exists or not. We’ve had a lot of supportive people at this event, and for that I was really happy.”
Yoshizawa continued, “We heard things like ‘I want to see the next game,’ ‘I want to play even more.’ And we want to make it, too, but since it’s one of those things that’s otherwise hard to gauge, to hear it directly from the fans has been a really great opportunity.”
After confirming to the interviewer that such sentiments are best directed straight to Sony, the producer added that it was thanks to the voices of the fans that they were able to create Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines, known as Ore no Shikabane wo Koeteyuke 2 in Japan, after remaking the original game for PSP, remarking that, “It would be great if people spoke up and we had that happen again for Freedom Wars.”
