Marvelous President: Half Of Our Titles Will Be For 3DS


imageThe Nintendo 3DS is the cover story of Nikkei Business this week and in the issue Marvelous President Haruki Nakayama mentioned his company’s plans for the system.


Nakayama said half of their games that go on sale this year will be for Nintendo 3DS. So far, Marvelous has four games slated for release this year: Rune Factory Oceans, Night of the Sacrifice, Half-Minute Hero Second, and the only 3DS game in their current lineup Animal Resort: Let’s Build A Zoo.


From the quote, it is not clear if Nakayama meant calendar year (i.e. Jan. to Dec.) or fiscal year (April 2011 – March 2012). Going by calendar year, Marvelous would have to release at least two more 3DS games to stick with Nakayama’s plan. A Harvest Moon title for the Nintendo 3DS has also been announced, but it does not have a release window.
