He also mentioned, “I aspire to make IPs that fans can enjoy even ten, twenty years after they’re released.”
After that, Toyama revealed that Bokeh Game Studio’s first title will be a horror game. He described it as “quite dark, far from my more recent titles.” He also expressed it as a means of returning to his roots.
