After it was announced last year, Inti Creates has been keeping mostly quiet on Dragon Marked For Death. In a new interview, however, the studio talked a bit more about the project.

Inti Creates boss Takuya Aizu has said that the game has a main story, with individual arcs for each of the four characters. You’ll be able to progress with each story online by playing with someone else on the same map while advancing the plot at your own pace.

Despite only having just announced it at BitSummit last week, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon is releasing next Thursday. Inti Creates will have it ready on both Switch and 3DS.

At BitSummit, USgamer spoke with Inti Creates president Takuya Aizu to talk more about the new title. Aizu commented on how involved Koji Igarashi is (Igarashi himself also had a few words here), how long it has been in development for, and the relationship to the upcoming Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night.

In a recent issue of Famitsu, one of the first SEGA Ages interviews was published. The magazine caught up with the following team members:

– SEGA Games’ lead producer and director Rieko Kodama
– Supervisor Yosuke Okunari
– Senior producer Kagasei Shimomura
– M2’s Naoki Horii

Q-Games’ first Switch game isn’t too far off. PixelJunk Monsters 2, as published by Spike Chunsoft, will be out on May 25.

The good news is that Q-Games isn’t stopping there with Switch. Speaking with Nintendo Life, co-founder Dylan Cuthbert said that the company is “definitely thinking about at least two new things in the pipeline, at least two more titles” when it comes to Nintendo’s console.

Unfortunately, Cuthbert didn’t elaborate on specifics for upcoming projects.


In an interview with Nintendo World Report, Nintendo’s Kensuke Tanabe and Risa Tabata as well as Vanpool’s spoke about the origins of the franchise and some of its influences.

When originally making Dillon’s Rolling Western, one of the first concepts was to have Goron tribe characters from The Legend of Zelda. Tanabe and Tsuda explained:

Nintendo Life caught up with a few of the developers behind Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers for an interview discussion. Producer Kensuke Tanabe and associate producer Risa Tabata from Nintendo as well as Vanpool’s Jun Tsuda participated.

We have a few excerpts from the interview below. There’s some talk about why the difficulty has been lowered this time, as well as interest in Switch and having a collaboration with Star Fox.

Koei Tecmo has worked with a number of Nintendo-related IPs in the past, including Pokemon, Zelda, and Fire Emblem. President Hisashi Koinuma also has his sights set on another franchise: Mario.

In an interview with Kotaku, Koinuma stated:

Yuji Naka was instrumental for the creation of Sonic. He programmed the very first game, and continued to work on the series – as well as SEGA projects – for over two decades.

Naka would eventually leave SEGA in 2006 to form his own studio Prope. Earlier this year, he joined Square Enix.

Nintendo Life caught up with Team Cherry at BitSummit over the weekend. William Pellen and Ari Gibson talked about the Switch version, and provided a good status update regarding progress. The team is now “near the finish line”, Team Cherry says.

Below are a few excerpts from the discussion:

Often during a game’s creation, developers have to scrap various elements. It could be due to a lack of time, or a completely different reason.

In the case of GoldenEye 007, Rare originally intended to have four different Bonds included. Sean Connery, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, and Pierce Brosnan would have all been playable in the end. Unfortunately, this was left on the cutting room floor, though some elements were left behind in the original code and files.
