Disgaea dev touches on PS4, PS Vita development

26 February 2013

Nippon Ichi, the developer behind the critically-acclaimed Disgaea franchise, has dropped a few tidbits on its plans for PlayStation 4.

The company was one of many studios named as PS4 supporters in wake of the console’s announcement last Wednesday at the PlayStation Meeting.

While details are scarce on its future projects, the firm did say it will start thinking about games for Sony’s next-generation console soon, and that it will continue to support PlayStation Vita.

“It was announced yesterday that Nippon Ichi is one of the developers for it. We are thinking about titles right now,” said Sohei Niikawa, president of Nippon Ichi, during a chinwag with Siliconera.

“There are still things with the PS3 that haven’t done or been seen yet that we want to try. I also want to see what the PS4 is capable of and we’ll start thinking from there.”

On PS Vita specifically, Niikawa said Nippon is putting the feelers out there to find out what its consumers want to see on the handheld.  “We will develop games for Vita in the future,” he pledged.

“Right now we are gauging the fan base’s needs about what kind of titles do they want for Vita. And base on that, looking at that, what kind of game that we come up with. We will most likely develop titles for it, based on that.”
