Monolith Soft's Tetsuya Takahashi won't rule out making something other than RPGs, but isn't sure it'll happen

What would you like to see Monolith Soft make?

Monolith Soft is known for making absolutely huge RPGs, and they're really good at it too. While fans love their work, there has been some question as to whether the company would make something outside of the RPG genre. In an interview with 4Gamer (translated by NintendoEverything), Monolith Soft boss Tetsuya Takahashi says it's possible, but it doesn't seem probably.

I wouldn’t rule it out entirely. But I once remember the manga artist Hirohiko Araki saying that he would never draw anything aside from JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. I felt at the time like I really understood that sentiment, and I think our company has a similar ethic.

...So While I am always of the mind that I can only create RPGs, at the same time I also love to play so much. Someone might say, ‘why not make a racing game’, but even though I do enjoy playing them, that’s a little different to making one. Maybe in the end I can only make RPGs so well because I like them so much.

Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be voicing the Terminator in his Mortal Kombat 11 appearance

He'll be back...kind of

The Terminator is coming to Mortal Kombat 11 as a DLC character, and the character model uses the likeness of Arnold Schwarzenegger. That's where Arnold's contributions end though, as it has been confirmed that the actor will not be providing his voice for the game. A soundalike will be handling that duty, which should be more than enough to get the point across.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood's devs discuss the decision to create a co-op shooter

My buddy

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is a considerable departure for the franchise. It's a shooter built from the ground-up to be a co-op experience. Why did the dev team decide to take this path? GamesBeat talked to developers Andreas Öjerfors and Aydin Afzoud to find out.

Andreas Öjerfors: We started with Wolfenstein: New Order, the big one, and then we did New Colossus, which was the side project. It used a lot of the systems and gameplay of New Order, but it had new actors, new weapons, and new levels. The idea was that next we’d do the same thing as New Colossus. But the idea of co-op and having this more open and unstructured world came into the picture. It became a much bigger project than we’d first thought. It took us a year and a half to build. The only reason we were able to build that big a project in just a year and a half was because of our partnership with Arkane.

Aydin Afzoud: We’d always wanted to explore co-op and make a co-op game. It’s also something that our fans had asked for. They wanted multiplayer, the ability to play with their friends. That’s always been our desire. Like he said, this smaller project, compared to the big game–that made it pretty natural to do the co-op these time.
