Akihiro Hino, president of Level 5, recently spoke to Famitsu regarding his reaction to the PlayStation 4’s reveal. Having released Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch for the console – besides being a supporter of the PS2 with Rogue Galaxy and the Dark Cloud series – Hino spoke about creating an MMO for the console.

“I am very interested in MMORPGs. It is a genre in which Level-5 has not been much involved so far, but I would try to make a game rich and high quality, which fully utilizes the technical capabilities of the console.”

Considering how close the companies have been, with Sony having recently published the recent Ni no Kuni for PlayStation 3, it only makes sense that Hino would be thinking about the company’s future with the device.

Still, an MMORPG is surprising. Considering the only real RPG that PS3 saw was Final Fantasy XIV – and dear lord, what a mess that became – it makes one wonder just how much of a good that would be.

Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • I think you forgot about the other MMORPGs on the ps3 like dc universe online, free relms and soon to be defiance and phantasy star online 2.

  • I’m still feeling burned by the shutdown of the WKC2 server only 21 months after launch.

    It was almost entirely the fault of SCEA for not publishing and D3 for picking it up with no intention to support it.
    The fact that we’re still missing most of the new quests that were released in Japan(around 70 quests), and the fact that they’re shutting it down without even hitting the two year mark still make me weary as hell.
    WKC1 never got all of the updates that JP received. I had my fingers crossed for WKC2, but was let down there too.
    I WANT them to do it right. I loved the WKC2 mechanics. The story mode was crap, but the online was incredible (though it took 200-400 hours to really open up).

    I’d love for them to do it right, but throwing down thousands of hours of my time on something that they couldn’t support the last two times doesn’t sound very appealing.
