Fast-paced motion video games and Japanese developer PlatinumGames go collectively like peanut butter and jelly. Nearly each one of many studio’s tasks has fallen into the motion class, however that may change sooner or later. With the developer growing in dimension and prominence, it has gotten nearer to having the liberty to do precisely what it desires with out the necessity for approval from a writer. The crew’s co-founder and Executive Director Atsushi Inaba not too long ago defined a few of his ideas about the way forward for Platinum.
In talking with USgamer, Inaba stated:
As we talked about earlier than, it’s not like we’re of the stance of, ‘Oh, we’re an motion recreation maker.’ We need to invent new issues for the gaming world. So for me, completely. I might very very similar to the chance to make one thing like that. Something that essentially isn’t an motion recreation. Maybe it’s a racing recreation, or perhaps it’s one thing else.
Chinese firm Tencent not too long ago invested a sum of cash into PlatinumGames, although the developer doesn’t need this to have an effect on its inventive freedom. Inaba defined:
We completely don’t need to be informed something by Tencent or to be managed by them. ‘Hey, please make this game. Okay, we will.’ No, we select what sort of video games we need to make. We need to make that very clear, however that being stated, opening the Tokyo workplace permits us extra workers and extra alternatives to pursue new issues that we need to do. We must refuse a number of presents, so in doing the Tokyo workplace we’re wanting ahead to the brand new alternatives that it’s going to present.
PlatinumGames is getting nearer to its aim of being fully unbiased and given its current success and explosion in recognition, this may occur sooner reasonably than later. Even although it desires to experiment with non-action video games sooner or later, there are nonetheless video games that fall into that class on the horizon—the not too long ago Kickstarted The Wonderful 101: Remastered might be out for PS4 in May 2020, in addition to the PS4 unique Babylon’s Fall, which is able to launch at an unknown date. The developer has different tasks within the works, as nicely. It not too long ago opened up a brand new studio in Tokyo to deal with live-service video games.
It’s unclear if it should certainly begin engaged on a non-action recreation quickly, however one factor is for certain: Platinum followers have rather a lot to look ahead to within the developer’s future.
