Nippon Ichi CEO Hints at Big Things to Come

We may get a look at a big Nippon Ichi title before the end of the year.

 

Even with today's announcement of Meikyuu Touro Regasist and the recent announcement of The Witch and the Hundred Soldiers, Nippon Ichi may not be done for the year. In an interview with Dengeki PlayStation this week, CEO Sohei Shinkawa hinted that we could get a glimpse at a major title before the end of the year.

Shinkawa also provided a broad look at the company's upcoming plans. PS3 will be the main platform for Nippon Ichi in the next fiscal year, he said. However, they plan on seeing how things go for PlayStation Vita and develop accordingly.

Regasist and Hundred Soldiers are both completely original titles. This could be an indication of things to come from Nippon Ichi, as Shinkawa said that they hope to continually launch new titles from here on out. Regasist and Hundred Soldiers are the start of this.

Even familiar Nippon Ichi series may see new developments. For Disgaea, Shinkawa said that they hope to develop not just a proper 5 sequel, but also consider new ways to expand the series.
