Famitsu 360: Japanese developer making a lot of Xbox 360 titles

Munetatsu Matsui, editor in chief at Famitsu Xbox 360, has updated his Twitter status with very interesting tweet yesterday. Apparently, he met with a Japanese game developer who've yet to release an Xbox 360 game, but will be making them this year and will have a lot to publish.

Who can it be?

There's 2 MMO already confirmed.

The new N3:2 Dev's new MMO and Monster Hunter Frontier. My guess is the new Mistwalker game and Ippo Using Natal and so on.

What a waste of time, lol

Blaze9293069d ago

Well either it's a bunch of Xbox LIVE Arcade titles maybe or a mixture but depending on what "a lot" means I doubt they can all be full fledged games when they are making them all this year.

Microsoft really seems to be on some kind of Japan operation in full force.

gaffyh3069d ago

Multiple titles = not good titles. I just want 1 game for 360 from Japan, Lost Odyssey 2, couldn't really give a crap about any other stuff e.g. Magna carta, N3 etc. They're all sub-par imo.

Immortal Kaim3069d ago

Seriously some of you guys like to whinge just for the sake of it. If MS completely pulled out of Japan you would be saying they abandoned their fan base (albeit small), if they try to carry on with 360 support in Japan, they are stupid for trying. Which one is it?

Anyway, I just want another game from Mistwalker, Lost Odyssey was amazing. LO2 would be a dream come true for me.

evrfighter3069d ago

the bitterness here is hilarious

A Cupcake for Gabe3069d ago

I really wonder how much money MS has to blow. The 360 is suffering so far in the back in JP. The really should just pull out and use resources in America....Euro....etc.

JP is Sony/Nintendo territory. MS should focus on keeping the lead in America.

Rush3069d ago

Yeah I will let the fanboys spout there nonsense its just insecurity anyways. Am done trying to correct them there to narrow minded its a complete waste of time and energy.

I agree with you Lost Odyssey 2, a new Blue Dragon game or even a new IP as long as its a JRPG made by the masters. In fact almost every game that comes out of Japan I generally like. I guess its something to do with the way the develop there games. The American developers just don't have that certain something for me.

I posted the exact same comment yesterday on an article regarding MAG's review score and it got "deleted".
Meanwhile, comments like these "What a waste of time", "I don't want to know", etc, don't get deleted.

The mods on this site are pretty weird.

baum3069d ago

"I don't want to know" or "Waste of time" are not really directed towards anyone in particular. However, you were probably aiming that "bitterness" comment at someone or a group of people. Should I even be surprised that you needed an explanation?

Oh, and dude... please, change your username. Save us some time in guessing who you are alligned with ;)

ABizzel13069d ago

People get it wrong. MS is not dumb, they're trying to run a business, and from that perspective MS is doing everything they can to get more sells, and stop the competition from leaving them which is what they are suppose to do as a business. Would you let your business just dwindle, because you're having a hard time with a certain group of people. No.

If you want to be mad or say someone's stupid then blame the companies. They'll accepting money from MS in order to keep their games exclusive when JRPG's struggle on the 360 especially in Japan where they should be selling the most. Capcom's Monster Hunter online was a dumb move for Capcom, all the Square RPG's was a dumb move by Square, none of this was stupid of MS.

It is astonishing how you have as many bubbles as you do.

You're not an unbiased person..

You're not exactly an articulate writer.

You hardly every have anything interesting to say.

How do you do it? What is your secret? I mean, even Saaking doesn't have a lot of bubbles, anymore.

"Yeah I will let the fanboys spout there nonsense its just insecurity anyways. Am done trying to correct them there to narrow minded its a complete waste of time and energy."

Cuz you OWN the Truth, right?

As Usual, this is something that Really Define the MS Fan-Crew, they only see what they want to see, they always complain about others but never look at them in the mirror, they always want to impose their vision of something as a Fact, GOD, Delusion is NOT a Bless...

Anyway, I want to know if this games are coming from Mistwalker and What kind of Deal Mistawalker have with MS

lowcarb3069d ago

"As Usual, this is something that Really Define the MS Fan-Crew, they only see what they want to see, they always complain about others but never look at them in the mirror"

Maybe because they don't care about the opinions of PS3 fanboys. There seems to be bad case of jealousy this gen from the PS3 camp which is just sad. Go enjoy your PS3's and gtfo already.

cayal3069d ago

"There seems to be bad case of jealousy this gen from the PS3 camp which is just sad"

Works both ways.

Rush3069d ago

Yeah and you spouting even more nonsense helps your cause.

"As Usual, this is something that Really Define the MS Fan-Crew, they only see what they want to see, they always complain about others but never look at them in the mirror, they always want to impose their vision of something as a Fact, GOD, Delusion is NOT a Bless..."

Clearly your in the wrong zone because am in the gamer zone and I appreciate games regardless of platform. I own a PS3 and 360 and I would own a Wii if any games really interested me for that console.

I have no loyalty to an electronics or software company unlike half you idiots in the wrong channel. If Microsoft gets a new kick ass exclusive I will buy it if its my type of game. If Sony gets a new awesome exclusive I will buy that.

As a fan of GAMES I love JRPG's so anything coming out of Japan is very exciting for me.

The Reason I own a 360 is because I loved, Eternal Sonata, SO4, Enchanted Arms, Tales of Vesperia, Lost Odyssey.

The Reason I own a PS3 is because I love, Final Fantasy, Valkyria Chronicles, Demon's Souls, Disgaea 3.

Seriously creeps like yourself shouldn't even be in this zone, but of course even the mods on this site have some pathetic loyalty to either a electronics or software company so don't worry they won't educate you.

Anyways thanks for annoying me enough to make me try explain my reason for thinking how pathetic you are again. But hey you won't take it onboard I already know this.

AAACE53069d ago

As I read that, for some reason I kept seeing the name "Atlus".

CWMR3068d ago

-Hmm.. I wonder which developer it is. Good news regardless. More games is always better than fewer games.-

TheLog3068d ago

Another exclusive is getting snatched...AGAIN.
Hope its Persona 5 and im a very happy camper.

well us 360 fans do. no one cares what you think

robotnik3069d ago

More flops that nobody will buy, let it die already.

Bodyboarder_VGamer3069d ago (Edited 3069d ago )

Murderdolls that doesn't change the fact that they are still flops...

Just look at the sales of White Knight Chronicles and compared them to WW sales of any jrpg on the X360.

chidori6663069d ago

lol.. good luck for this devs and sales flops of j-rpgs of 360... ;)

Narutone663069d ago

according to bot logic.
If a game does not sell 5 Million in one day = flop.
If a game does not score 9.5/10 in the Metacritic = flop.
Yep, definitely 100% will flop.

CWMR3068d ago

-Who said that if a game doesn't sell 5 million it is a flop? You are building a straw man. I have never heard a 360 fan say that. Some might have said that a game flopped compared to expectation, but I have never heard anybody say that a game is a flop unless it sells 5 million.

Lots of JRPGs have seen success on the 360.-

MajesticBeast3069d ago

wow microsoft is still trying even though the other consoles are outselling it by thousands a month i dont know if you can call it support or just plain stupid.

kaveti66163069d ago

It's still support. It's a matter of opinion whether it is stupid of them to continue strong support in Japan. But objectively, it is still support.

Myst3069d ago

Would be nice if he could have stated the studio name, I really hate it when we ( as in us gamers ) get left in the dark and are left with speculation.

Anyway tried looking at a few more of his tweets, but my head began to hurt due to the Kanji. Though so far I haven't come across anything of importance ( at least I don't think some of them were...)

reintype3069d ago (Edited 3069d ago )

They are the only company I know of in Japan, that has not yet made anything for the next-gen consoles. They are also, the only one big enough to produce the many titles that were alluded to by Famitsu.

They already have No More Heroes and Rainy Woods slated for the 360, the rest could be XBLA or NATAL launch titles.

ps360owner093069d ago

They were suppose to be creating a new studio and releasing some new games. Do you think it could be them finally showing the games they have been working on?

Myst3068d ago

@ps360owner09: Ah, who knows. I really don't know much of devs or name brands and have stuck with just looking to titles and game-play. Though if they are the ones if I recall who did Ninja Gaiden first then I'm all for it.

@reintype: Hopefully their will be some variety other than just some XBLA titles here as well as Natal ones over there. Then again I haven't looked into XBLA as much so probably my lack of understanding of XBLA that makes me not want them to spend so much time there? *Shrugs*
