V #Jump and #Famitsu is currently holding a “Game industry end of the year party 2020” special talk show stream on #Niconico. #With several developers appearing. #In particular, #Square #Enix’ #Yosuke #Saito, #Yoko #Taro, #Bandai #Namco’s #Katsuhiro #Harada and #CyberConnect2’s #Hiroshi #Matsuyama.

#Here’s a summary of the discussion regarding #Yoko #Taro and his new games.

#Starting the 2:23:00 point on stream, #Yosuke #Saito explained #Yoko #Taro and him regularly chat about what to do next after #NieR #Automata. #Yoko #Taro also had an idea he really wants to do, but in contrary, #Yosuke #Saito was really against it. #At some point, #Yoko #Taro explained his project to #Yosuke #Saito for an hour, which is unusually long for presenting a project, and then they went to drink wine and eat yakiniku together so #Yosuke #Saito accepted. #However, #Yosuke #Saito regrets it and wishes he could just let #Yoko #Taro do that game himself. #Yoko #Taro said the game is really unsettling.

#Yosuke #Saito and #Yoko #Taro explained that while this happened around one year ago, the project didn’t advance much. #And #Yosuke #Saito still wishes he could just stop doing it right the hell now.

#As they were both initially only speaking of a project rather than a game, they also specified it is a game project. They’re not even sure what kind of genre the game will be. #Viewers joked on chat about how it could be an #Otome game. #Yosuke #Saito denied it but #Yoko taro said it could as well turn into one.

#Continuing on, #Yoko #Taro and #Yosuke #Saito said there’s another game they’re working on. #That one is something they both wanted to do together. #Moreover, they first discussed that second game “long before” the one mentioned above.

#That’s all regarding #Yoko #Taro’s new games.

The stream has just ended after four hours and 24 minutes. #Only the first two hours or so were free though, and only #Niconico premium account users can watch the full stream. #We might have a summary up at some point if time permits.

#Yosuke #Saito mentioned in his #Famitsu end of the year message he’s working on a new game. #Likely, this is the second game he mentioned on stream.
