Dengeki PlayStation this week has a new interview with Yoru no Nai Kuni director Keisuke Kikuchi, Atelier series director Yoshito Okamura, and Ar Tonelico and Surge Concerto series director Akira Tsuchiya.
The trio discuss Gust‘s future system of releases, the studio’s goal for the year, and shares a message for Gust fans.
Regarding the Future System of Releases
Keisuke: “Until now, Gust has released an Atelier game every year, and every several years a new Surge Concerto game. But there are a lot of titles I want to make outside those. And for that opportunity, we launched a new line. For this game, I’m also receiving feedback from Okamura (Atelier director) and Tsuchiya (Surge Concerto director).”
Regarding this Year’s Goal
Okamura: “We still have news to deliver for fans waiting on the Atelier series.”
Tsuchiya: “If we can do interesting things with games both inside and outside, and collaborations with other game makers, I think that’ll be good.”
A Message for Gust’s Fans
Okamura: “I’m sorry to keep you waiting for Atelier. A new game is still to come, so please look forward to it.”
Tsuchiya: “I want to work hard at appearing to be ‘even crazier than last year.'”
Thanks, Hachima Kikou.
