On Shadows of Valentia’s release and remaking older games:

Higuchi: We don’t have concrete plans for any more remakes, but if the opportunity arises, I’d love to do a remake of Famicom Wars.


On other potential series that Koei Tecmo wanted to make into a Warriors game:

Hayashi: [The idea for] Fire Emblem Warriors came about naturally when we were creating Hyrule Warriors Legends. We were dealing with some development challenges with the 3DS hardware, so we add the ability to switch between characters and send characters to different parts of the map and that made us think: “That would be really good for a Fire Emblem game.”


Totilo: You don’t have plans for Pikmin Warriors? Wave Race Warriors?

Hayashi: [Laughing] No, no.
