Wants to fully utilize the power of the console.
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.
