CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama: ‘We’ve got 3 new games in the pipeline’


2013′s going to be a busy year for game development studio CyberConnect2. Not only are they working on the finishing touches for Naruto Shippuuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (March 2013), they’ve also been concurrently working on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure All-Star Battle (PS3), as well as GREE smartphone action game Night Runner (Working Title) and additional contents for its other smartphone title, Guilty Dragon.

And that’s not all. The Fukuoka-based developer has apparently got pretty big plans for 2013.

In a New Year’s message YouTube video that just went live today, CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama teased that the game developer plans to unveil three more unannounced titles later this year in 2013.

Matsuyama-san described these three new titles as “original new works” (オリジナル新作), which is Japanese-game-industry speak for “brand new IP”.

The story is too old to be commented.

Damn, was hoping for a .hack game lol.

Wonder what they in store for us.

Given that they're suggesting a range of anything from full console titles to iOS, I'm going to guess stuff possibly not as big as you think.

I hope Asura's Wrath 2 will still come

I just got #1 the other day. The game is crazy.

Myst-Vearn2051d ago

Yeah I loved the .hack GU games on the PS2

I want another .hack game, and that would be bad ass if they made one for the PC as well, online would be golden, and if they had a mmo with the PS# and PC combined. * mind-blown*

Hicken2051d ago

Since I played the first game, all I've ever wanted was an online .hack.

A .Hack//Gu HD collection please :)

Im guessing a new anime QTE/beatemup/hacknslash game. Asura´s Wrath 2 is not necessary from the way i see it.
Naruto Storm Impact 2 for the PS Vita and PSP.
And hopefully a new Hack game alongside with an HD colection of the older games.

3 new IP´s would nice as well CC2 makes good stuff.
