We caught up with PM Studios to discuss their 2010 plans beyond the digital re-release of DJ Max Portable. In this interview Michael Yum, Executive Producer, fields questions about Gunbird 2 Remix’s concept art and announces their HD platform pick.
Michael Yum, Executive Producer: Thank you so much. The game should be available this Thursday and it took a long time to bring it over for the PSN. As for DJ Max on PSP, unfortunately I can’t say much except we should have some announcements for our games in April.
Whatever happened to the DJ Max DS game? Is it still in development?
I can’t say anything about this either.
Will we ever see DJ Max on consoles?
I would love to see it on consoles in full HD glory. At the moment we are just evaluating all possibilities.
How did the Gunbird 2 Remix project get started?
We are partners with Windysoft so we started looking at everything we can do together once we helped launch Strikers 1945 Plus. One of the Producers has expressed their interest to remake Gunbird so I loved the idea and we got started.
I think many of readers have questions about the concept art. Why was it changed?
Oh man, the art got a lot of bad response, but I assure you the original team is still helping out and the art is not going to be changed. Don’t worry everyone, those were just conceptual art and we learned a lot from the responses.
Does PM Studios have plans to re-release or remake any other Psikyo games?
We love the Psikyo games and will continue to work on their franchises. Just to give you guys a heads up, we are doing something else but it is something completely new for people. Who says we need consoles to play these games…
PM Studios has spent a lot of time on the PSP. Is branching out to consoles one of your goals for 2010?
We sure are. As I stated before, we are very interested in HD gaming. And our minds are set on PS3.
I just want to say to everyone, I am truly sorry I could not provide better answers this time. Please keep posted for more news.
