Excellent Marvelous news - Lux Pain, Flower Sun and Rain looking good for NA release, WiiWare title in the works, Oboro Muramasa Youtoden is alive, and Arc Rise Fantasia being considered for NA!
Some snippets from a Siliconera interview with Yasuhiro Wada, President of Marvelous Interactive in Japan…
S: Will we get games like Lux Pain or Flower, Sun and Rain, which are being published by Rising Star Europe, in the USA?
YW: We don’t know who is going to publish them yet. They might be published by Marvelous USA or licensed out to another publisher so we can’t talk about those two titles yet.
S: Three to five years is a long time and that has to be good for XSEED. For Marvelous USA or Marvelous in general have you thought about doing digital download games like Xbox Live Arcade, PSN, or WiiWare?
YW: Actually we’re working on a downloadable title.
S: For which platform?
S: Whatever happened to that Vanillaware game Oboro Muramasa Youtoden that we saw at Tokyo Game Show?
YW: Come to Tokyo Game Show and you can see it. We don’t know if it will be playable, but we are talking about it. You should be able to see new videos at the event.
SE: What about Arc Rise Fantasia? Have you thought about bringing that to North America?
YW: We are considering to release Arc Rise Fantasia in the US too. Since XSEED has experience releasing RPGs in the US we will consider them as the publisher for Arc Rise Fantasia.
By the way, the WiiWare title is brand-new. Check out the full interview here
