[Update: I failed to catch the few seconds of Kaiho Shojo gameplay in this video. My mistake! Sorry internet!]
While it’s a shame that this interview-focused trailer hasn’t been translated into English yet, it’s still great to get an up-close look at both the games of Guild 01 and the developers who are making them. This is the first time that I know of an “all star game jam” to come to the major consoles, and the concept alone has me excited. Seeing Suda51 (No More Heroes, Lollipop Chainsaw) Yoshiyuki Hirai (comedy group America Zarigani), Yasumi Matsuno (Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy XII) and Yoot Saito (Seaman) all gushing about their projects gives me goosebumps, even if those goosebumps are in un-subtitled Japanese. It’s also exciting that Guild 01 is planned to be the first in a series. I’m hoping they get Swery 65 (Deadly Premonition), Takeyasu Sawaki (Okami, El Shaddai), Keiji Inafune (Mega Man, Dead Rising) and Daisuke “Pixel” Amaya (Cave Story, Ika-Chan) for the next go-round.
So which of these games do you think looks the best so far? For me, it’s a tie between Suda’s Kaiho Shojo and Matsuno’s Crimson Shroud. Then again, those are the two games that are yet to show off any gameplay, so its sort of a moot point. I’m just psyched to see those Dungeons and Dragons dice rolling, and that bird foot getting shanked.
Birds are jerks (except for the cool ones).
