Hello my lovely listeners-as-a-service! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re bringing up the topic that Galen dubs, “evolving games”. These are games like Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Maker 2 that are back-loaded with post-launch content. Is this new release and marketing strategy to keep a game topical good or bad? Why is it done? Is this a model that can sustain itself for years to come? We also have more Final Fantasy VII Remake impressions now that Oni Dino has beaten the game, and we go hypothetical in our listener mail segment with dream studios working on dream IPs.

This week’s issue of Famitsu has a big feature on HAL Laboratory to celebrate the studio’s 40th anniversary. As part of that, the Japanese magazine spoke with a few key Kirby developers. Lead action programmer Katsuyoshi Sumitomo, general director Shinya Kumazaki, and design director Riki Fuhrmann participated in the discussion.

After talking about how Star Allies raised the bar for Kirby games, the developers discussed their future plans. Fuhrmann’s comments might be the most interesting, as he said he personally wants to create a non-action spin-off title. He also promised “a wide variety of Kirby coming out in the future.”

Below are the full comments from all three developers:

SEGA Ages kicked off on Switch back in September 2018 with Sonic the Hedgehog. Just a couple of months ago, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 was finally made available as well. Although there’s currently nothing on the horizon, other entries in the series for Switch may not be out of the question in the future.

In a interview with Game Watch earlier this year, SEGA’s Yosuke Okunari was asked if games like Sonic 3, Sonic & Knuckles, and even the arcade title SegaSonic the Hedgehog are possible for re-release. Okunari indicated that there aren’t any set plans, but if the initial collection of SEGA Ages titles is determined to be a success, it’s something the team would like to consider.

Okunari’s full words:

We’ve seen Bravely Default and Bravely Second on 3DS, with Square Enix returning to the original game’s name with Bravely Default II on Switch later this year. What lies ahead for the IP in the future? Perhaps Bravely Third.

In this week’s issue of Famitsu, the Japanese magazine asked producer Tomoya Asano about the possibility of a Bravely Third. Asano said in response, as translated by Nintendo Everything:

This month’s issue of Nintendo Dream has a massive Fire Emblem: Three Houses developer interview. Directors Toshiyuki Kusakihara and Genki Yokota addressed a variety of topics, including inspirations, world-building and character writing, depictions of characters, themes, and lore, plus more. As part of this, we get to hear about Byleth and keeping his facial expressions to a minimum as well as Dimitri’s eyepatch.
