Years, many years, ago The 3rd Birthday was announced for mobile phones, but now it’s a PSP game. Was the body snatching mechanic always in the game? How did The 3rd Birthday evolve? I asked the development team.
“The basic system and the project itself didn’t change much between the transition from mobile phones and the PSP. The design is something that we started to change,” Isamu Kamikokuryo, Art Director, replied. Kamikokuryo also worked on Final Fantasy XIII and brought core staff from that game to The 3rd Birthday.
“The graphics are almost on par with a console because the team working on it is putting in a lot of effort,” Hajime Tabata, the game’s director, added.
