Masachika Kawata has told of his interest in making more Resident Evil games for the 3DS, especially after seeing the fan reaction of Revelations. This is what he said in an interview with IGN:
“The incredibly positive fan reaction to Revelations has definitely given me motivation to make another 3DS RE title. I have some ideas in mind. However, I have a lot of other projects that need to be taken care of first. …I must admit, hearing players say how much they enjoyed Revelations does kind of make me want to forget the other projects and get stuck right into making another RE game for fans to enjoy (laughs).”
The developers of Revelations looked to bring the series back to its root with their game. Given the commercial reception thus far, could we see additional titles that continue this approach?
“Of course! Game development is always a very taxing process, no matter what the project, and the only thing that gets us through is the belief that, at the end of the journey, there are people waiting to enjoy the game. So if a game sells particularly well, then we have good reason to make more titles like it.”
