Ryoei Mikage, CEO, gave a rough outline of his plans in an interview with 4gamer. Next year, Imageepoch will turn their attention to HD consoles and start development. To date, Imageepoch has not released a single HD game. All of their titles have been for Wii or handhelds. Mikage says sometime in 2012 they will cease making PSP releases.
Mikage believes RPGs aren’t suited for hardware launches so he doesn’t have any Nintendo 3DS plans yet. His strategy is to wait for the hardware to spread out over a year. The time for Imageepoch to get cranking on Nintendo 3DS games, is in Mikage’s view, spring 2012 or after. Perhaps, around then the studio can offer RPGs for 3DS users. Many of Imageepoch’s titles like Sands of Destruction and the Luminous Arc series were for Nintendo DS.
The company’s list of planned projects include a Type-Moon collaboration and a JRPG take on an established video game series.
