Project Phoenix’s Director Explains why it’ll be on PS4 and PS Vita and Not on Nintendo’s Consoles

With the successful debut of Project Phoenix on Kickstarter many have been wondering why the developer Creative Intelligence Arts is negotiating for a PS4 and PS Vita version of the game, but isn’t interested in publishing it on Nintendo’s consoles, and in particular on the Wii U.

Last night Giuseppe Nelva of had a chance to interview the game’s Director and Producer Hiroaki Yura, so he just went ahead and asked him directly.

Just waiting for confirmation that this game will be made for the PS Vita (natively, not through remote play on PS4, though that's cool too). As soon as they say it's a go, they have my money :)

I must admit, I'm LOVING these indie games on Kickstarter. This will be my 3rd backed in roughly a month. Really looking forward to 2014 and 2015 now :D

sherimae24132282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

still in denial?!

ofcourse there will be a vita version of the game! thats why its written as "project phoenix will also be released for ps4 and vita"

is that hard for you to understand?

it doesnt says as "project phoenix will be released for ps4 and can be played through vita via remoteplay"

and also the game is coming to ios/android devices, it doesnt make sense if the vita will only be playable thru remoteplay

think, think, think! oniichan!! ^_^

They said they're 90% sure but are still in negotiations with Sony. Not sure why you're getting so defensive, I plan on supporting the game, I just want to make sure they're 100% confirmed to be bringing it to PS Vita :)

Odoylerules0002282d ago

Daaaaammmn girl! He wasn't really even being negative about the Vita! 90% still means it might not be released on our hand-held of choice although chances are it will. Don't get me wrong, all us Vita owners are hoping for this.

Abriael2282d ago

he sure seemed pretty positive about it when I interviewed him.

miyamoto2282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

So many positive things happening to PlayStation 4 and PS Vita!

Great Games Awaits!

Thank heaven for PlayStation!

PlayStation has all the right moves!

Tenchu, Valkyria, Uematsu are the names that spell EPICNESS for this game!

consider it done! oniichan!

besides that 90%ur talking about is the deal about them an sony to release the game on BOTH the ps4 and vita, and they say it will 90% chance that will likely to happen

i suggest you should follow the news regarding to this game, may it be here or in twitter or at kickstarter to know more about infos okies ^_^

SynGamer2282d ago


I have been following the news, hence why their Kickstarter page still says:

"Which game consoles will Project Phoenix be released on?

Currently we are in negotiations to have our game released on the PS4 and the PSVITA. The negotiations are still ongoing and we are 90% certain we will be able to release on these wonderful devices."

Once that is confirmed, THEN you can "consider it done" ;) Also, you seem really defensive. I haven't once said anything negative about the game, I'm simply stating that I want them to officially confirm they will be bringing the game to the PS Vita, that's all :)

sherimae24132282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

its because ur comment stated above says "im waiting for confirmation if this game will be made for ps vita natively?" which is already stated by the developer that they are developing this game on both ps4 and vita, get it now?

that 90% is about the deal whether it will be released in ps4/vita isnt it and we both know that

im not defensive im just stating that there is something wrong in ur comment above, why would u wait for confirmation if the game will be made for ps vita (natively) when its already stated by the dev its both for ps4 and vita a few days ago?

Hicken2282d ago

To be fair, dear, you are being a little aggressive. I do see where you're coming from, but it does sound like you're attacking him.

Jury2282d ago

This isn't xbl, chill out and be respectful. I respect this dude for getting on kick starter and helping out. Nice one mate.

sherimae24132282d ago

am i being aggresive? just tell me and ill apologize, oniichan!
i think am i.... then sowwy ^_^ peace okies

Hicken2282d ago

That's just her style. She's always called people that.

kenshiro1002281d ago

VITA version for me!!! im glad they picked the ps4 and vita ^_^

Blackdeath_6632282d ago

nice to see devs working on creative games valuing their games design over sales or being on all the platforms. too often do we see companies compromising the quality of their games for whatever reason

falcon972282d ago (Edited 2282d ago )

Nintendo clearly wont miss u when looking at this video...

And this video only contains some,theres a new desert strike and lots more on wiiu confirmed.

seppo912282d ago

You're sure about that?
I would think every old school gamer would love to have Project Phoenix.
Doesnt matter what system its on.

HammadTheBeast2282d ago

Yeah but still, can't hurt to get another game, especially a JRPG created by legendary devs and which goes back to the roots.

Odoylerules0002282d ago

You'd be right except you're completely and utterly wrong. Try again.

Abriael2282d ago

There's absolutely nothing there that looks even nearly as interesting as Project Phoenix. Lemme know when Nintendo gets an indie game with music by Nobuo Uematsu, k?
