Report: Former Street Fighter designer making "hardcore" NGP game

According to a reported leak from Japanese magazine Dengeki, Noritaka Funamizu's Crafts & Meister studio is working on a game for Sony's NGP portable, and whatever it is, it's so "hardcore" that "people will wonder if it's okay to release such a game".

File these comments under "needs official translation", "may not even be real" and "nosebleed".

Andriasang's translation of the magazine leak has Funamizu's commenting on the NGP's controls, praising the inclusion of traditional buttons and analog sticks.

Funamizu is said to have agreed that the NGP is capable of "near PS3" games, but suggested that memory issues can affect development.

The new game may feature PS3 connectivity depending on budget.
