Lots of little tidbits for you today.
Also: It looks as though Division24 (Giftpia, Chibi-Robo, Captain Rainbow) is hiring, so perhaps we can expect another big console adventure in 2010. Or perhaps they need extra staff to work on the Wii port of Chibi-Robo.
Those of you who read the comments to my previous post will see that Kenichi Nishi has directly responded to my criticism of him making too many Newtonica games. In his response he says, “OK, I know your opinion. Just moment please.” Which may suggest that something new is just around the corner. I’m looking forward to seeing what it is.
Finally, Akira Ueda of Audio Inc has posted a lenghty blog entry on his website about his desire to make Contact 2. Using the wholly inadequate Babelfish I can’t really make out the details but he seems to be saying that he has lots of ideas for a sequel that may never happen. Here’s hoping he gets the chance to do it one day. Contact wasn’t the best RPG ever made but it had some fun ideas that could really be built upon.
