Wild Arms Creator Teases Series Revival
On Wild Arms‘ 20th anniversary, creator Akifumi Kaneko announced that he attended a “Wild Arms meeting” with several people including a Sony Computer Entertainment producer, teasing a possible revival. The first game in the series was released for the PS One in 1996, and the latest release came in August 2007. In a Tweet (translation courtesy of Gematsu), Kaneko said:
So. I’m back from the Wild Arms meeting. Participants included myself, [series composer Michiko] Naruke, SCE producer [Kentaro] Motomura, and promotion’s [Taku] Nishijima, who everybody loves. Tonight, we emphasized that “this year, it’s the series’s 20th annivesray!” It’s cold outside, but we were undoubtedly hot.
This isn’t the first time Kaneko has teased a revival but whether something came out of the meeting or not remains to be seen. For now, PS2’s Wild Arms 3 is set to arrive on the PS4 this year.
