Highway Games has posted an interview they had with Casey Utsunomiya of Namco Bandai Japan and they discuss Namco’s stance in the arcade industry, their thoughts on it, and future titles. It’s good to hear that they will continue to give arcades a period between the arcade release and the console release so that operators have a chance to make back their investment. Also they drop hints that maybe there will be a new Soul Calibur game for arcades, along with sequels to some of their other popular games (probably Time Crisis and MaxiTune). I have to say personally however that I was more intrigued by some original titles like Razing Storm (although that looks very much like Crisis Zone) and Nirin than by seeing more sequels.
