Marvelous President Comments On Nintendo 3DS Announcement

By Ishaan . April 6, 2010 . 12:46pm No doubt publishers in Japan are thinking of their next move in light of the recent 3DS announcement. Among them are Marvelous Entertainment, who have published the majority of their portfolio in recent years on the DS Lite.


Addressing the Nintendo 3DS tease on his company’s blog, Marvelous CEO Haruki Nakayama says that, the announcement, while surprising, was welcome news. He suggests that, while circumstances surrounding its eventual release are unclear, and that development costs and the retail price of the device will be higher, judging by the current market, it will sell well. Nakayama goes on to mention that he is optimistic about the online capabilities of the device and is considering them carefully.


“I hope to refine numbers and supply good products,” he concluded. It’s good to see Marvelous still have their fighting spirit.

    Yeah, that’s something I was thinking about. If they make a more powerful handheld, of course development costs would be higher. This is not a good thing for small companies.

      Yup. That’s why you see that many PSP games don’t really take advantage of the hardware fully, companies are too cheap to spend the resources (with good reason).

      And on home consoles, whole genres that don’t really even exist anymore, because it’s not financially viable to make them…

        yeah your right that’s why valkyria chronicles 2 moved to psp instead of ps3 again aahh

          Gahhhhhhhhh. Im still pissed off about that.

  • Ahh that image in the front page made me remember i want rune factory 3 to get localized already T_T

  • Online Harvest moon/ rune factory please :)

    • In addition to their flagship, I’d like to suggest Luminous Arc 1, 2, 3, Steal Princess, and Contact.

      While we’re at it, I’d like to see Pure White Love Bizarre Jelly as a stand-alone. Yes, I know it’s ridiculous I’d even ask for this, but, it would be nice to see a shout out from No More Heroes.
