What happens when you beat up bad guys in the River City franchise? Sometimes they shout 'BARF!' when they keel over. No, they don't actually barf, but they yell it for some reason! Its become a silly tradition for River City games moving forward, and today WayForward has confirmed that River City Girls is carrying the torch. Things just wouldn't be right without it!
The Gunvolt franchise has been pretty successful for Inti Creates. The company has put out two mainline Gunvolt games, with the spinoff Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX coming later this year. In an interview with NintendoEverything, Inti Creates CEO Takuya Aizu discusses where the series could go from here on out.
“For the future of the Gunvolt series as a whole, the main Gunvolt series – 1, 2, and now we have Luminous Avenger IX – they’re separate series, so they can indeed continue to exist on their own. If you look at the series themselves, Luminous Avenger IX or the IX series or whatever you want to call it, the director for the IX series is a guy named Toshiaki Tai, who was the scenario writer and planner on the main Gunvolt series, and of course the main Gunvolt series is directed by Yoshihisa Tsuda, so they’re now each in charge of their own series. You basically have IX – the one Tai’s directing – and the main series Tsuda is directing. Of course, with Gunvolt 3, we don’t have anything at this point in time because Yoshida-san hasn’t gotten able to make anything yet. He keeps saying he’s going to make it, but we’re not quite there just yet with Gunvolt 3. But he said he’s going to do it though.”
Level-5's Ushiro was originally announced as a PSP title all the way back in 2008, but that never came to be. Then last year, Level-5 stated that the game was alive, and would be coming to Switch. Since then, there's been no new information shared. What in the world is going on with the game?
Shedding some light on the situation while simultaneously adding more confusion, Level-5's virtual Youtuber Reto-chan has interview Ushiro's head developer to see where things stand. Check out the Q&A below.
Q: Seriously though, what’s the state of Ushiro’s development?
Head developer M: “Please ask President Hino. He mentioned in a weekly gaming magazine that the game is coming to Nintendo Switch, but the finer details are only known by President Hino himself, so…”
Q: Why’s development been delayed so much?
M: “A reason… (long silence) We haven’t exorcised it yet. Whenever we use the word ‘demon’ (akuma) we properly exorcise it from our office. Actually, even for the fourth Yo-kai Watch movie, we used the word ‘ghost’ and as such had to do an exorcism. But despite Ushiro being this sort of title, we haven’t done so… Lots of things have happened to the people involved, with some even making headlines on Yahoo News…”
Q: Will Ushiro properly be developed going forward?
M: “I hear that there are quite a few young creators who have mentioned they want to make Ushiro, and as the head of the title I’d also like to release it, but before that I believe we have a lot of things we need to release first before that.”
Print media in Japan is a hell of a thing. It just keeps on trucking, and seems to be in no real danger of dying out. Nintendo continues to advertise in Famitsu each week, and not just with ads for their games. The advertisement above is for the Fire Emblem: Three Houses 'Perfect Guide' in particular! Yes, that does advertise the game as well, but it's just crazy to me to see a print ad dedicated to a walkthrough!
