TVGB writes: "And so we come to the final third of Weekly Famitsu's interview with Akihiro Hino, president of Level 5. In part one, we heard about the history and evolution of Level 5. In part two, Hino celebrated their collaboration with world-famous animation house Studio Ghibli. He also elaborated on how 'Magic Master', a book included with the game, will factor into Ninokuni's gameplay. In this final part, Hino further expands on interesting potential uses of the book and, tantalizingly, other real-world gadgets.
Level 5 president, Akihiro Hino: At this conference, we announced the Nintendo DS version of Ninokuni, but actually, there will be a console version available as well.
Weekly Famitsu editor-in-chief, Katsuaki Kato: Really?! Has the platform been decided?
Hino: No. Right now, we're focused on the development of the DS version. First, we want to finalize the game mechanics. The Nintendo DS is well suited to development through trial and error; it's easy to work with. We want to establish the link between the book and the game well, and then when it comes time to switch to the console version, we can make an even more polished product. We also want to add some story and remix the game a bit so that even people who played the DS version will enjoy it, but we're still deciding on exactly what would be optimal."
