Update: Consider this story outdated. For a clearer idea of the facts, read this more recent report.
Slight correction: We said in an earlier version of this report that Marvelous AQL will be publishing the game in North America. This was an error. Marvelous AQL aren’t the U.S. publisher.
We recently caught up with Harvest Moon creator, Yasuhiro Wada, who’s just set his new company, Toybox Inc., after having parted ways with Grasshopper Manufacture, where he was employed until late 2011. In our interview, Wada revealed two things:
1. Toybox are working on a portable game of some sort.
2. Wada hopes to be able to show off a game at E3.
Today, during his talk at the Game Developers Conference about the origins of Harvest Moon, Wada revealed a third surprise: an enhanced version of Deadly Premonition is coming to the PlayStation 3 with more content. Prior to joining Grasshopper, Wada worked at Marvelous Entertainment, where he was the executive producer on Deadly Premonition.
Wada says he hopes they’ll be able to show the game at E3 this year. Additionally Wada also revealed that he and Deadly Premonition director, Hidetaka “Swery” Suehiro, are working together on another game as well.
Food for thought:
Before he joined Grasshopper, Wada had spent the majority of his career at Marvelous Entertainment. News of his departure came as a surprise, so it’s interesting that he’s still working with them.
