Grounding, developers of the upcoming Crimson Dragon for the Xbox One, and of Sakura Samurai on the Nintendo eShop, are working on a new title for Nintendo.


Crimson Dragon director Yukio Futatsugi shared with Joystiq that the studio is working on a new project for Nintendo. Futatsugi wouldn’t reveal further details.

    Crimson Dragon U: People Will Own The Console This is On Edition?

    I’m looking forward to seeing what they make. I loved Sakura Samurai.

    A Crimson Dragon spinoff, perhaps? Sort of like how Mistwalker (along with other studios) made Blue Dragon Plus and Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow for the DS?

    • That would be cool but I wonder if Microsoft has funded the development for Crimson Dragon or something. There is a Crimson Dragon for Windows Phone but not iOS/Android so I don’t expect to see “Crimson Dragon” games on anything other than MS hardware.

  • Here’ hoping it’s something more like Crimson Dragon and no Sakura Samurai. I wasn’t a fan.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Ooo Crimson Dragon Plus on 3DS maybe? Or even another Sakura Samurai?^_^ I really like that game lol.

    anyone else see the header image and think ” Brave fencer… Musashi!”

  • Juan Andrés Valencia

    I’m interested. Also… any chances for Crimson Dragon: Director’s Cut on the PS4?

    • Godmars

      Microsoft is publishing it, so no.

  • Yes! This is the kind of Nintendo 3rd party support I was talking about! Who needs EA?

  • Warboss Aohd

    ……reminds me o’ Way of the Samurai.

  • mockturtle

    If it’s a sequel to Sakura Samurai, which seems plausible, hopefully they’ll make it more enjoyable. The core mechanic was solid but the structure was lacking. Having more of an adventure instead of just a bunch of stages would be nice.
