I'll be looking forward to seeing what it is in any case, but hopefully it's a new Umihara!
There was some pretty interesting information from Mr. Kondo -- both Umihara-related and not. In particular, it was interesting to hear that he is most proud of Shun, specifically noting all of his hand-drawn animations. Fair enough, too, it looks fantastic.
Some other interesting bits of info:
- Physics differences between games: Mr. Sakai saw replays of super players and the techniques being used, and adjusted the physics in future games to encourage those techniques he liked and remove those he didn't want players to use
- Unused enemies in SFC Umihara: ran out of ideas to use them
There's also a sale on Studio Saizensen games on Steam until April 3rd -- the Umiharas are 60% off individually, the trilogy pack is 70% off, and Code of Princess and Blade Arcus are 50% off, so if anyone has been waiting for a chance to buy one or all of these, now's a pretty good time.
