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.
