Okamiden Producer Says Fans Would Like To See An iPhone Port

http://www.siliconera.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/10/okamiden.jpg Volume 2 of Capcom’s internally-conducted developer interviews features Motohide Eshiro, producer on games such as Ace Attorney Investigations: Miles Edgeworth and Okamiden.


Eshiro first joined Capcom in 1990 and was a programmer on Street Fighter II. He then went on to direct Onimusha 2.


In a talk discussing Okamiden, Eshiro says that something he’s seen from a lot of fans are requests for an iPhone or iPad port of Okamiden, given the game’s emphasis on touch-based control.


“A lot of fans have indicated they would like to see an iPhone or iPad port of Okamiden, which would allow players to draw directly on the touchscreen like the Nintendo DS,” Eshiro reveals. “While we are happy to see fans tell us what they’d like to have done with the game, we can’t really consider these options until after the release of Nintendo DS version.”


Okamiden released this past week in Japan. Now that Eshiro’s team is more or less done with the game — localization work notwithstanding — perhaps they’re now thinking of how to optimize Okamiden for an iDevice?

    Okamiden on iPad/iPhone would be interesting from a graphical standpoint. It’s a shame I find the prospect of a control scheme featuring a floating transparent d-pad entirely off putting.

    Guess this will cost a fourth of the DS version, like any other iPhone game.

  • Let’s get this released outside of Japan before worrying about ports :3

    Okamiden producer is dead wrong.

    Just like they were wrong about putting this on the DS.

  • Really? This is what people are wishing for? * sight *
    Why not Okami HD for PS3 with Move support? Makes much more sense to me.

    On an entirely not related note: I literally sh*t myself when I saw that Odin Sphere and Muramass HD remakes are coming to PS3, one less reason to buy a Wii.

    What people could possibly want an iphone port of this!? I refuse to believe these are real people. Motohide Eshiro stop pulling my leg!
