Painkiller Hell & Damnation Interview - Behind Insanity

(continued from previous page) ...down to your video store and buy a game are almost numbered?

Reinhard: I don’t think that this will happen. Of course there is a shift from off- to online and this most probably will further increase, but we here at Nordic Games are also strong believers in physical extras. I want to see more figurines or other cool stuff that is physical extra content based on a game. In my opinion, that is the key to keep the physical selling business going. Publishers and developers need to think more in that direction I think.

Looking towards next-gen consoles, do you think the Painkiller series has a future here, or perhaps one of your other franchises, such as Aquanox?

Reinhard: We are not thinking too much about next generation consoles just yet. With our size, we are in the nice position of not having to be among first-movers with regards to new platforms. Once the hardware installed base gets to an attractive level we will evaluate respective new projects/sequels/reboots etc. There certainly lies some really exciting times ahead of us. Generally speaking, our approach now is to prepare some cool high-level concepts that could work on any platforms

Painkiller Hell & Damnation is due for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 on April 5, 2013.
