I thought it was an April Fool's joke (The news came during April 1, after all). But apparently it's for real.

With how SO5 went, I can't blame him. He had to work with a budget; one that wasn't even enough to make it more than just the bare minimum. He might work for another company (I say he should go to Spike Chunsoft and make a spiritual successor to SO), or even create his own company.
A sequel to Cyber Sleuth, Dragon Quest Heroes II coming to the West, and SO3 HD. 2017 is off to a good start for me.

SO5 was gorgeous to look at (even with Miki looking a little off), and the voice acting was great (for the main cast at least), but sadly the gameplay and story (which were bland) looked even more by the numbers by comparison. Not to mention it made me miss SO3 tremendously, and wish we could get it remade.

I also hope he goes on to have more freedom to do with as he pleases. The SO series wasn't perfect, but it was great.

Wow. That was quick.

So he's interested in VR? I'm not really interested in that virtual MMORPG he puts first priority to, but probably the other VR stuff could draw some interest.

I would rather settle for just a regular game, really.

As far as I recall, Yamagishi had nothing to do with SO5. He was done with the series after SO4. The last thing he produced was the VP mobile game.

Ah, I see.

At least I know that he didn't lend a hand in creating that massive disappointment known as SO5 :)

I know--I'm sad this happened too. But at least he's finally free from the guys who messed up our favorite JRPG series (Thumbs up) :D

Now we know why SO5... uh... didn't live up to the expectations.
