Tekken series producer and creator Katsuhiro Harada plans on getting back to work on new games this year.
In a Japanese interview translated by Siliconera, Harada said that after a year of focusing on promotion and developing Namco Bandai’s free-to-play catalogue with Sony, he’s hoping to get back to work at his “main job” of making games.
“Tekken is one of my life’s works, and while I can’t say much here, together with the titles we were going to announce this year, I’m also working on several other titles simultaneously with Tekken,” he said.
“From there, I’d like to announce at least two of those titles in 2014, and I feel that it’s something I must do.”
Harada said that Namco Bandai has “a few titles” that it’s “been quietly working on”, as well as some it’s “been thinking about working on”, so 2014 “looks like it’ll be a tough one”.
The producer sounds keen to get back into development, commenting that he might ask fans on twitter for help when he gets stuck.
“I’ve had to be part of way too many mysterious jobs and non-paying holiday gigs. For the year 2014, I’d like to focus more on my main job, so please continue supporting us,” he said.
