Warriors Orochi 4 producer considered including a Nintendo character in the game, sees potential in Xenoblade Warriors

Warriors Orochi 4 recently released, and it brings another insane amount of characters and enemies with it. Turns out at one point, the dev team for the game was actually considering including a Nintendo-related character on the roster side of things. This detail comes from a Miketendo64 interview with Warriors Orochi 4 producer Masaki Furusawa...

Miketendo64: Although Nintendo are not involved with Warriors Orochi 4, given the impressive line-up of Samurai Warriors and Dynasty Warriors characters, did you ever consider asking Nintendo if a character or two from Hyrule and Fire Emblem Warriors could be included?

Masaki Furusawa: Yes, we thought about it. However, as we focused on delving deeply into the DW and SW cast, including an “incomplete” cast of these other games would be disrespectful towards the fans, so we decided not to do so.

Mr. Furusawa was also asked about the potential for other Nintendo-related franchises getting the 'Warriors' treatment like Zelda and Fire Emblem did. When the Xenoblade series was brought up, Furusawa believed it to be a good fit.

Again, as a personal opinion, I think that there would be potential for the “Ys” and “Xeno” series to be adapted, because, just as you mentioned, they feature characters having a strong impact, and would therefore, meld well with the Warriors series.

Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World devs talk Nelke design, potential for sequel

Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists: Ateliers of the New World is heading to the Switch later this year, and is a spin-off of the other Atelier games. In an interview with DualShockers, producers Keisuke Kikuchi and Junzo Hosoi talk about Nelke's design herself, as well as the potential for a sequel.

DS: What was the inspiration for Nelke’s design? She looks very different from many of the protagonists we have seen in previous games.

Junzo Hosoi: She comes from a family of aristocrats, so we thought she should have a style that felt more European. We worked closely with Character Designer NOCO in order to come up with the final version of the design. We thought there had to be some similarities with previous Atelier games, like her wearing a hat of some sorts, even if it’s a style of hat that we never used before. Yet, our aim was certainly to come up with something different.

DS: Is Nelke a game that you strictly see as a one-off, or maybe it could become its own trilogy in the future? What I mean is, could there be a Nelke & the Legendary Alchemists 2?

KK: This title is meant as a celebratory game for the 20th anniversary. About what comes next, we’re more looking forward to the next main Atelier game. Maybe for the 25th or 30th anniversaries, we might consider it if there are even more characters that we could include in this kind of game. It’s definitely not decided yet.
