GUST on JRPGs, Tecmo Koei and developing on PlayStation and Mobile platforms

Digitally Downloaded sat down with Tadanobu Inoue, GUST Producer and Executive Director, to talk about the Atelier series, developing on the PlayStation platform, and the future of the JRPG.

Oh, and the possibility of a Dead or Alive RPG. (Gust Corporation, Industry, PS Vita, PS3)

GUST is very underrated when it comes to JRPGs cause they follow their own philosophy in the genre. Their games on the PS2 were absolutely fantastic. The AR Tonelico & Atelier games had simple concepts but had enough going for them to keep them fresh in the eyes of JRPG players.

So glad they have not deviated from how they make games even when they were acquired by Tecmo Koei. The Arland Atelier games were great & Ayesha from what i have read is another successful game for them. Also it is nice to hear that they will support the Vita despite all the hardships it is going through currently. Making great games is important to them & for that they deserve support.

Still i hope they consider continuing the AR Tonelico series even though supposedly the story has ended.

They can make the AR Tonelico a different world and story like the Atelier series.

Based on the responses to the interview it seems unlikely that the Ar tonelico series will continue.

Besides, it would be awesome if GUST took a crack at doing something different and kicking off a new franchise. :D

Yeah it was wishful thinking. However i hear that Ciel no Surge is from the same creator & sort of a spiritual alternative version of AR Tonelico.

Too bad the game is like a visual novel more than an actual game so the likely hood of it coming over here is nil.

I like the idea of them lending their talents to other games like Neptunia. That whole trio of GUST, Compile Heart, & NIS on creating a game with their ideas. More companies need to collaborate on projects.

Hopefully Monolith will save the JRPG genre, they said that was their goal, to influence other Japanese developers.

I can assure you Gust games won't be influenced by recent Monolith JRPGs, and that's a good thing.
