    Yasuhiro Wada, the creator of the well loved farming game, Harvest Moon, is back with a new IP. Tentatively named "Birthdays", it seems to be a simulation type game that focuses on creating habitats for dinosaurs by manipulating the land. The creatures are affected by the changes you make to their environment, and will evolve to adapt to it. According to Famitsu, the game is being developed by Arc System Works, and will release in Japan as a PS4 exclusive on January 19th.

    YES GAME OVER
    Since when does a fighting game company make "Dinosaur simulators?" So far arc system works and natsume (I think is part of the harvest moon publishing) Has been trying to collab for making a River city ransom like title exlcusive for Japan 3DS available internatonally, but so far no news on that, and that was announced before this game, so what the heck is going on?

    Oh and i'm still waiting for my guilty gear blazblue crossover game :ninja:

    Why can't they? That's like saying Nintendo can't make Zelda if they make Mario! Since when does a puzzle game making company make a platformer? And you do know different teams work on different things, so it all depends for that other game.

    I wasn't saying they can't i was just surprised i didn't know they would, also i am wondering why they don't finish one project before starting or announcing a new one.... I just need some time to let it sink in.... :unsure:

    Dayum, that's what I would want a pokemon game to be about. Premise looks interesting, hopefully the technology in creature interaction and design isn't completely shit like in NMS.

    What's weird is that it's not the same thing. Arc is more known for its hand in fighting games. So, yes, this is a bit of a surprise.

    Bruh, let 'em do what they want to do! They can make whatever the hell they please~
    At a point, a company gets big enough that it can work on two projects simultaneously. Look at Bethesda. They always have two full-sized games in the works at any given time (i.e. FO4 was being pre-planned while Skyrim was being developed). Most, if not all companies that are bigger than a certain size do this. Welcome to game development brah.

    EDIT: More games = more money, 'nuff said.
