Yoshiki Okamoto addressed whether or not there will be a Folklore 2 or a Brave Story 2 in an interview.
Watch The Latest Gaming News:
Okamoto is the creator of the Folklore, a PS3 exclusive title, as well as the PSP RPG Brave Story: New Traveler. He is also well known for creating several Capcom classics including the shooter 1942 and a co-creator of the Street Fighter franchise. He also developed the Genji series and Dragon Ball Origins and works at the company he founded called Game Republic.
1UP: Speaking about two games that you released a year ago, one of which you said you were the most proud of, Folklore, and also Brave Story, which I reviewed. I loved that game. How did Folklore do in the U.S.? I downloaded all the extra DLC, and I thought it was fun stuff, and it seems to have a very devoted following in the U.S., and Brave Story got very good reviews everywhere. Have you guys thought about making sequels to those games? I remember that you were thinking about making a Folklore for the the PSP. Is there any progress on that?
Yoshiki Okamoto: Unfortunately, we’re not making a sequel for either of those games. We had talked about a PSP version for Folklore, but we’ve since ceased those discussions. It makes me a little sad, but that’s just the way it is.
Make sure to read the entire interview which is hilarious as it goes off into some very funny tangents about relationships, Japanese women, marriage and more.
Sad to hear about Folklore, I know Supa had a pretty good time reviewing it and it looked like a very fun and original title from what I saw.
