Operation Backlog Completion 2024
Dec 282022

As is common, a number of Japanese game developers have made end-of-year comments about their plans for 2023.

Published by Famitsu and 4Gamer and translated by Gematsu, most of these statements aren’t too specific.

One of the most interesting ones to me, however, comes from Hironobu Sakaguchi, who said he’s begun writing the scenario for an unannounced dark fantasy title.

I still need to play more of Mistwalker’s games, including their Apple-exclusive RPG Fantasian, which I now have a device capable of playing. It’s exciting to know that Mistwalker has another title coming up, so I look forward to seeing what it is! (I still wish they’d remaster or port their previous games, too.)

There are lots of other little hints in the messages as well, such as references to new games from Level-5, Koei Tecmo, and Spike Chunsoft, among others.

(As much as I wish there was a hint of Ace Attorney news in Capcom’s messages, they only reference Dragon’s Dogma 2, Monster Hunter, and Exoprimal. I’m still hopeful that next year will be our year.)

Anyway, it’s worth reading through these message to get a glimpse of what 2023 has in store for us. Mistwalker’s new game is the one that caught my attention the most, but what about you?
