Skies of Arcadia Discussion
« on: August 28, 2017, 10:58:04 pm »



Would you prefer a prequel, a remaster or a sequel to Skies of Arcadia? Please state your reasons as to why.


I definitely would love to see a revisit to the elaborate world, but with new upbeat characters and lesser encounter rate with monsters.

Not sure if I can only choose one otherwise I would choose all three.

For selfish reasons I would choose a sequel, or an unrelated story set in the same universe. It would probably make the most sense to create a remaster so that people who missed the game or were too young for it can get in to the world before they move on to a new game in the series.

It has been quite a few years since I last beat Skies of Arcadia so I would love to see a remaster too. Even a budget remaster would be appreciated.

Kenji Hiruta is working on "something" related to Skies of Arcadia
No, not a game or sequel.




Quote
Happy 20th Anniversary of SoA! I know that many guys want HD remaster or sequel, but unfortunately it depends on SEGA and I'm not working for SoA related games.
But, I've been working something related to SoA.
It may be a small change, but not zero. WE are changing something.

I wish for remake. The graphic is still good but if it could be better, why not.

Kenji Hiruta : "A small, tremendous miracle that You and I made after 20 years"



Quote
Also, I'd always wanted to develop a sequel of Skies of Arcadia, so when I tweeted it in English, the response exceeded 1.15 million impressions, and so many articles were written all over the world.
Again, I was able to feel the enthusiasm of the fans.
