It’s been a long time since Brigandine has seen a new entry in the series, with the last game launching in 1998 in Japan for the original PlayStation. With 22 years of absence, many may have wondered if there would ever be a new release, or if the games were done for good.
In an interview with Siliconera, Happinet’s Kazuhiro Igarashi explains why now is the right time for the series to make its return:

This week’s Famitsu review scores are as follows:

Nintendo has a tendency to take a strong stance against the modification of its hardware. Piracy has been a particularly notable issue over the years, which has prompted the company to pursue legal action time and time again. We’re now seeing the latest instance of this by sending a cease-and-desist letter to a company that only installs mod chips obtained elsewhere.

The affected company is Logistics Consulting LLC, which has recently offered a “Nintendo Switch SX CORE SX LITE Mod Chip Service” on its website. While it doesn’t actually make or sell mods, it does provide that installation service. That was enough to set off Nintendo, with the Big N’s lawyers arguing that it violates the anti-circumvention and anti-trafficking clauses of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act.
