Spike Chunsoft intend to develop for Nintendo NX


Spike Chunsoft has signalled their intention to develop for NX, Nintendo’s “dedicated game platform” that is set to be revealed next year.

Best known for their work on Danganronpa and the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, Japan’s Weekly Famitsu had chance to interview president and CEO Mitsutoshi Sakurai.

When asked about what hardware they are looking to develop for moving forwards, he responded: “For stationary consoles, we’ll focus on PlayStation 4. After, Nintendo’s new hardware, the NX. I would also like to start fully working on Steam.”

Spike Chunsoft has predominantly developed for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita over the past five years, and will surely look to leverage that experience on Nintendo’s mystery console.

Asked as to precisely what the company has in store for 2016 and beyond, Sakurai continued: “We’re not at the level where we can announce anything, but we’ve started work on the development of a completely new title. Additionally, we have the latest entry in the Zero Escape series, which Kotaro Uchikoshi is making. We’re making various other advancements, too.”
