Rez and Lumines creator Tetsuya Mizuguchi has expressed an interest in returning to game development after leaving Q Entertainment in 2013 to pursue other interests.

Mizuguchi’s interview comes from the latest issue of Edge, as cribbed by Videogamer.

Speaking with the magazine, he said, “I’m helping with a few games, but these aren’t like my past works. These are not like my created games. I’m helping with some social games in Japan; I can’t say anything about it just yet. But I’m just helping. So I want to start a new project [of my own] maybe this year or next.”

“I can’t share details yet,” he went on. “At BitSummit, I shared my thoughts on synaesthesia, and this is a big thing for me. I started that kind of concept in games with Rez and this is a long journey, across Rez and Lumines and Child of Eden, and maybe Space Channel 5 too.

“That part of my DNA will never die, so this is kind of a life’s work for me. So I’m thinking about what is next, and what’s the future experience.”
