If lead designer Kazuma Kaneko has anything to say about it, there's a good possibility.
Without a doubt, the Shin Megami Tensei series is one of the strangest RPG franchises out there, where it's not uncommon at all for occult and demonic manifestations to show up for a cup of tea. And while it's been featured primarily on the PS2 lately, that doesn't mean that Wii gamers will be out of luck if they're looking to get their weird on.
In a recent interview with Hardcore Gamer Monthly, the games' lead designer, Kazuma Kaneko talked all about the latest entry, Devil Summoner. When the subject of future entries came up, the following dialogue took place:
HGM: So with Devil Summoner coming out this year and
Persona 3 on the way, what's next for the MegaTen series?
Kaneko: Probably the next Devil Summoner title.
HGM: What systems can fans expect to see MegaTen games on
in the future?
Kaneko: Probably the PS3 and Wii. I would really love to bring
MegaTen to Wii.
HGM: What would a Wii MegaTen game be like?
Kaneko: Well, if you play Nocturne or Digital Devil
Saga, they're typical modern RPGs. You see your characters act from
a third-person view. But as you and your readers probably know, the
original MegaTen games used a completely different first-person
viewpoint. I would love to go back to basics with MegaTen on the
Wii and bring back the first-person perspective, while using the
controller to let players experience their environments directly.
That's straight from the horse's mouth, folks. Time will tell if anything will come out of it, so keep your browsers tuned to PGC for the latest happenings in this story.
