a new rpg would be GREAT!

Yeah, I hope it's not an MMO.

However it will have some online features, considering previous comments.

^^ did you steal my Persona? or are you my Hollow side? lol
Namikaze_Minato  +   1033d ago
A Kage Bunshin perhaps.
Saigon  +   1033d ago
Hands down, I can't wait. They are one of the greatest RPG developers out there and still thriving with innovation.
Why o why  +   1033d ago
FCUK YEAH

NNK wasn't perfect but boy did I get sucked into their world. So glad it done well. It'll probably be ages before we see their next title as their dev cycle seems quite lengthy
Root  +   1033d ago
Wonder if it's a Ni No Kuni sequel or a totally new game
Minato-Namikaze  +   1033d ago
Probably new. level 5 usually announces a new game for sony after they reveal their console.
fsfsxii  +   1033d ago
I'm guessing E3, tons of games should be announced there hopefully
koehler83  +   1033d ago
Don't announce a game because you're working on one.

Announce a game because you're preparing to release one.

Let's please not start this stupid merry-go-round again.
krontaar  +   1033d ago
Normally I would agree, but since this a new console they're more than likely doing this for marketing purposes.
koehler83  +   1033d ago
Just like they did with White Knight Chronicles.

Just like SE did with FFXIII, Versus XIII and Agito XIII.

Just like Rockstar did with Agent.

The list goes on and on... And it never ends well. They're doing themselves a disservice more than me. I'm trying to help.

Lol at the cynical one but he has a point even though not every title that has pre pre hype ends up being a no show or crap.... NNK is testament to that. Devs have to build hype and sites and mags need things to write about so I guess it'll never end

Hopefully we won't be seeing problems like that again since Sony have finally made the Playstation easier to code for.
Riderz1337  +   1033d ago
Well it's a good thing that it's just your opinion (and a stupid one at that). I personally am happy to hear that they are moving to a next gen console and am excited to see what their next project is. Do you see the word I used there? "excited". I think that's what the developer wants people to feel when they announce that they are moving to a brand new platform and developing a game, "excitement".

Don't be such a hater.
koehler83  +   1033d ago
Whoa whoa whoa.

Whatever Level 5 is working on.. I want it. I am a big fan.

Let me make that utterly clear.

I just... kinda don't want to by hyped about it for 2..3..4+ years. White Knight Chronicles took 5.

More than that.. I don't wanna see those guys kill themselves to deliver on a promise made prematurely.

I'm thrilled they're working on a PS4 game. Fingers crossed it's another Studio Ghibli collaboration or something like Dark Cloud. I hope that's all we hear about it until it's a game.. not a prerendered cutscene depicting their 'vision'.

omfg!!!!!!!!!!! WTF!!!!! This is awesome news!!!!!!! This seriously ade my day. Now all i need is a direct sequel to Demon souls as a ps4 exclusive utilizing all of the ps4 power!
Genuine-User  +   1033d ago
Good to see people so hyped. Lol
strigoi814  +   1033d ago
Wow i just hope its something exclusive to pS4 and more like ni no kuni gameplay
Minato-Namikaze  +   1033d ago
Most likely exclusive. Level 5 generally doesnt do Multiplat titles and Level 5 basically hates MS at this point after MS torpedoed True fantasy online. Not sure who owns the TFO IP but i hope Level 5 brings it to the PS4 since Hino wants to finished it.

this is a duplicate story.
geassdanny  +   1033d ago
PS4 news just keeps getting better:)
Dark Cloud 3 would be nice!
-Gespenst-  +   1033d ago
Hopefully Rogue Galaxy 2. But I suppose it's likely to be Dark Cloud 3 or something completely new.
Sevir  +   1033d ago
well with the talk of Online networking features and Social functionality
It seems more and more likely that this will be the MMO he wanted to create on the Xbox before MS canned it.

And considering how WKC had an online aspect and being able to tackle quests online with friends on the PS3 I'm certain they fully intend to make the MMO they never got to make. Which is boon for Sony because MMO games on consoles are far and few between.
Master of Unlocking  +   1033d ago
Yet another Playstation exclusive from what everyone and their mother rightfully refer to as the new Squaresoft? Gee, the starting blocks for the PS4 have been pushed quite ahead of those of the competition, haven't they? :)
BABY-JEDI  +   1033d ago
Ni No Kuni is brilliant (I'm playing this at the moment). Hopefully a game in a similar vein. Spirited away anyone?
Howl's Castle?
Castle in the sky?
All genius
krontaar  +   1033d ago
Im not sure a 30+ hour RPG would work well taking a story from a 2 hour movie. I like the style, but If Im going to invest the time I want something new.
BABY-JEDI  +   1033d ago
Hi, fair enought, but I'm really talking about the concepts/ideas that these movies have. ; )
Salooh  +   1033d ago
DarkCloud T_T . I'm starting to hate Level-5.

Ni No story is great but the gameplay sucks to me and doesn't give mme dark cloud feelings so i still want dark cloud or at least an HD collection for the vita or the ps3 :(
krontaar  +   1033d ago
That would be amazing. Dark cloud 3 NEEDS to happen.
izumo_lee  +   1033d ago
All i have to say is welcome home Level-5! Sony & Level-5 had always had a very strong relationship that spawned some memorable games for the platform like Dark Cloud, Rogue Galaxy, Jeanne D'Arc, Ni no Kuni & quite possibly the best Dragon Quest game ever made Dragon Quest VIII.

Looking forward to this continued relationship & seeing what other great titles Level-5 can come up with.
ThatCanadianGuy514  +   1033d ago
More RPGs please.This entire gen has been a FPS/TPS bananza.
Hopefully next gen is all about that sweet RPG goodness.
Relientk77  +   1033d ago
Omg so much win!!

bring on the RPGs
GABRIEL1030  +   1033d ago
Yes another point for PS4 :)

Please Pleasy Rogue Galaxy 2....
