Now that we know that Capcom’s Deep Down is indeed NOT a sequel to Dragon’s Dogma, we can go back to speculating whether the breakout hack and slash action RPG will ever be revisited down the line. One person who’s interested enough to go back to it director Hideaki Itsuno. He wants to see the sequel come to PS4 – and even wants to work on Rival Schools 3 and Devil May Cry 5.
Speaking on the PlayStation Japan community, Itsuno states, “In my head, I have a story and setting for the next one, but it’s not one that can be easily done…For example, voices say ‘coming for PS4!’ and it seems to happen quite a whole lot. The possibility to be able to make it might to be growing.
“In addition to that, I want to also make a miniature garden simulation, as well as make more games for (established) series such as ‘Rival Schools 3’ and ‘Devil May Cry 5.’ Later on, I would even like to make a game that captures authentic fighting and, such as Street Fighter II did, to develop a new genre of fighting games. Inside of me there are a lot of things I want to make, and because there are already concepts, there might be a chance! I have this feeling.”
The existence of concepts is certainly interesting. Maybe one of the above games will happen sooner or later for next-gen consoles? Here’s hoping.
