Jason Michael Paul has been producing The Legend of Zelda: Symphony of the Goddesses concert for the past several years. It’s the only major concert has done, but it’s not for a lack of interest.
Earlier in the year, Paul said he wanted to make a Nintendo All Star concert. In a new interview with GamesIndustry, he also stated that ht’s created a proposal for a Super Mario symphony that he hopes will stick. Unfortunately, Paul noted that his idea for a Super Smash Symphony won’t happen since it’s “too complicated.”

In the latest issue of Dengeki PlayStation, PlatinumGames game designer and director Hideki Kamiya spoke about the sorts of projects he’d be interested in working on in the future. Kamiya cited a “true Okami sequel” and a Viewtiful Joe remake as just a couple of things he’d love to pursue.
“I want to work on a Devil May Cry and Viewtiful Joe remake, or a true sequel for Okami. A cooperation with Dante (from Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta might also be fun. Dear Capcom, if it’s okay with someone like me, I will help anytime. Best regards. Everyone, bow down your heads together with me!”
Capcom needs to find a way to get Kamiya and PlatinumGames involved with a new Okami game. Okamiden was nice for what it was, but a true sequel as Kamiya suggested would be a dream come true. And while we’re at it, we seriously need Okami HD on Switch, Capcom…

The Pokemon Company has launched a new Twitter account seemingly centered on a new project of some kind – Project Eevee. At the moment, we know pretty much nothing about what this is. So far, the account has only made a single tweet, teasing “the start of something” for tomorrow, November 21st, at 9 PM JST. It’s worth noting that this account is in Japanese and so far, only the Japanese Pokemon Twitter account follows it, so whatever Project Eevee is, it may just be a minor, Japan-only thing (for now). Either way, we will keep you updated.

Not too long ago, Polygon was able to speak with Shigeo Maruyama. Maruyama was previously the chairman of Sony Computer Entertainment and the CEO of Sony Music Entertainment. He was present way back in the day when negotiations were taking place with Nintendo about working on a gaming system together.
As we know, Nintendo and Sony’s partnership wasn’t meant to be. Nintendo went in its own direction, as did Sony. Maruyama reflected on those initial conversations with Nintendo in a recent interview with Polygod, in which he stated:
