It comes from the next issue of Edge, in which producer Yoshiaki Koizumi said of the game's platform, "That's still a secret. I can tell you, though, that we've already started approaching our next challenge."

Interestingly, team leader Kenta Motokura added that if the game is for Wii U it, "might need to make even more use of the GamePad."

Koizumi went on, "There's still a lot more room for discovery and invention, and we'll continue to propose new and exciting game mechanics going into the future."
