Shadow of the Colossus, Fallout 3, No More Heroes Developers Talk New Projects

During a joint panel at GDC 2009, the developers of Shadow of Colossus, Fallout 3 and No More Heroes all spoke of their new projects.

Mark MacDonald moderated the panel between Shadow of the Colossus/Ico creator Fumito Ueda, No More Heroes creator Goichi Suda, and Fallout 3 developer Emil Pagliarulo.

After opening up the panel for questions, Suda took the chance to ask one for the crowd: what games are Ueda and Pagliarulo working on next? A transcription of the dialogue follows:

Suda: I think I'll represent everybody's question in asking about [Pagliarulo] and Mr. Ueda's new game. Of course I can't say anything about what I am working on.

Ueda: The Japan studio bosses are probably here so I can't say anything specific. But it might be something similar to what's been done. Kind of a middleground...

Mark MacDonald: I'm sorry, the translation wasn't quite clear. Maybe if you could speak a little bit more about your next game.

Ueda: Hmm, well, let's see. Well, probably it will be similar to the past... we are struggling. The essence of the game is rather close to Ico.

Suda: Who is your partner?

Ueda: I can't talk about this anymore. Don't ask anymore questions please! As soon as I start talking they are going to shoot me.

Suda: [Resident Evil 4 lead designer Shinji Mikami] is making a horror game. I am working on that. Maybe I shouldn't have said that.

Pagliarulo: I can say we're working on lots of DLC. Really fun stuff. Future Fallout, lots of stuff brewing up here. God only knows where that may go. What famous landmarks can we destroy next? What landmarks in Japan can we destroy?

[The crowd and Mr. Suda/Ueda laugh.]

I just realized how stupid it was of me to say that. [laughs]
