Having seen video
of Monolith Soft's Soma Bringer
and having found it to be, well, basically sumptuous
, we're tentatively pleased to hear that it's probably going to be a series. That's according to a newly-translated tidbit in a "Creative Voice" interview with Soma Bringer
producer Tetsuya Takahashi
and composer Yasunori Mitsuda
In a discussion about the building of the Soma Bringer
world, Takahashi makes this casual mention of the plan: "As this is the first title, it does not have to comprise of every single detail of the world, instead the elements of the storyline best suited for an Action RPG were selected to be told."
pleased, of course, because we really have no idea if Soma Bringer
is a) any good, and b) planned for localization at all. If both of those conditions are satisfied, then yay for sequels!
