A couple months ago we reported that Arc System Works acquired the rights to many old titles of Technos Japan such as Kunio-Kun and Double Dragon. Now it seems like Ark wants to revive those franchises according to a recent interview done by Famitsu.
President of Arc System Works Minoru Kidooka answered his thoughts about the recent acquisition by stating..
“I thought it was great. We’ve worked on various titles from Technos Japan up until now, and I see them as titles that will surely please the players. Again, I believe there are many that can be developed for smartphone, and they’re also very popular in the West.”
Famitsu then asked what plans they have on development and he responded…
“First, we’ll do what we’ve been doing, and continue developing titles for Nintendo 3DS and other console games.”
“Additionally, Technos Japan has titles that have roots to arcade game, and personally, I’d love to see them get revived on arcades, once again. In addition to bringing back titles such as Kunio-kun and Double Dragon to arcades, we’d also like to expand in countries we haven’t been able to in the past with foreign developments, not limited to only North America, but China and other countries as well.”
