Sega and Nintendo are reportedly working on a RPG together according to this post on Cube.IGN. Here is a snipped of the interview between Gameweek and Sega of America’s Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications, Charles Bellfield.
Peter Main, one of the big men at Nintendo reportedlyt “smirked” when asked a similar question previously.
Here is a snippet from the interview:
GW: Charles, can you confirm or deny the existence of this so-called “top-secret RPG” being worked on by Sega and Nintendo?
CB: (long pause) I’m trying to recall? Tetsu Kayama talked about a number of things last week and I would normally refer back to what he said, but… Let’s put it this way: whatever he said, the answer is “yes.”
GW: You know, Peter Main had the same suspicious grin when I asked him this question two and a half months ago…
CB: Did he really? Yes. (another long pause) We’ve got a great content line ahead. (smiles)
I’d have to agree with the Cube.IGN writer on this one. “As each day goes by, Sega’s withdrawal from the hardware business gets sweeter and sweeter. Life is good.” Life is good and it just keeps getting better.
