Eternal Darkness creator Denis Dyack spoke with YouTube user SuperMetaldave64 in a new podcast published today. Dyack gave an update on the Shadow of the Eternals project, his experience working with Shigeru Miyamoto and Satoru Iwata, his excitement for NX, and more.

Here are a few excerpts:

On Shadow of the Eternals…

“There’s likely to be some announcements in the not-too-distant future. When we actually do it, I can’t say at this point, but I do think that there’s going to be a couple of shockers coming. I’m really looking forward to seeing what the responses are. We’re really excited. And remember as well, our company we’re not just doing games, so we’re pairing with television and film as well so it’ll be a myriad of things coming out on some of the things that we’re doing. It’s going to be very different.”

“You can expect we’ll support Nintendo. Nintendo is one of the best partners in the world.”
