Today Senran Kagura creator Kenichiro Takaki discussed his plans for 2021 in a large group interview on Famitsu.
Takaki-san, who semi-recently left Marvelous to work at Cygames as head of console business, mentioned that his aspiration for 2021 is to reveal am original new game for consoles that he’s continuing to work on with his colleagues in the new environment.
While Takaki-san doesn’t mention it explicitly, it could be the action game that he has teased back in 2019, created in collaboration with Senran Kagura character designer Nan Yaegashi.
He also encourages fans to look forward to Granblue Fantasy Relink following the latest reveal, which he believes demonstrated the game’s charm as a high-quality single-player JRPG.
Still from Cygames, we hear from Granblue Fantasy director Tetsuya Fukuhara, who asks the fans to continue supporting the team as 2021 will be an important year to focus on the development of Granblue Fantasy Relink.
He also mentions the upcoming seventh anniversary of the Granblue Fantasy franchise and first anniversary of Granblue Fantasy Versus, promising updates for both.
As a big fan of both Granblue Fantasy and Senran Kagura (I doubt anyone is surprised, by now), I certainly can’t wait to see what Takaki-san has in store for both Relink and his original new game.
