As part of a fan Q&A, CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama opened up about the challenging development of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.

Despite feeling that the team couldn’t have done much better, Matsuyama said the studio “got behind schedule.” Additionally, CyberConnect2 “exceeded budget and ended up causing trouble to Bandai Namco Entertainment”. Despite the challenges faced during development, Matsuyama feels that the company was still able to make a “a pretty good game.”

Matsuyama’s full words:

Bandai Namco, along with CyberConnect2, released .hack//G.U. Last Recode back in 2017. It’s a remastered version of the action RPG from the PlayStation 2 era. A number of fans have expressed interest in a Switch version, but it’s not yet happened due to some resistance from Bandai Namco.

CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama addressed the possibility of a Switch port as part of a fan Q&A. He explained that the company has made multiple proposals, though Bandai Namco hasn’t given the green light since “it’s hard to predict the cost of porting and the sales prospects.” Matsuyama encourages those that want to see it happen contact Bandai Namco and relay their interest, stating that “they value fans’ feedback the most.”

Matsuyama’s full words:
