A few days before the debut of Nier: Automata on PC, the director, Yoko Taro, wrote a tweet in which he expressed his desire to see a successor to the PlayStation Vita, ie a new handheld console manufactured by Sony, the project of which, however, was rumored some weeks ago.
The Director of Nier Automata expressed on Twitter his wish to see a successor to the PlayStation Vita. At the time, Sony has not announced any plans for the future portable handheld and this seems to have disappointed Yoko Taro.
Indeed, despite the recent introduction of Nintendo Switch, Taro would prefer to have a smaller portable console to meet the needs of those who do not play on smartphones because of the lack of physical buttons.
“I want to see a Vita successor. That feeling has calmed down a bit after the release of Switch, but I want to play something on a slightly smaller next-gen handheld console. I want something that could satisfy my itch that can’t be done through a smartphone without physical buttons.”
Despite the rise of smartphones, handheld consoles are still very popular in the land of the Rising Sun as it allows to play quality titles even in the confusion of a city like Tokyo.
Recall that Yoko Taro is currently working on a new product for the mobile devices, SINoALICE.
What do you think of the words of Yoko Taro? Would you like to see a new handheld console with the license plate of Sony? Let us know your opinion in the comment section below.
VITA の後継機が欲しいなあ。Switch が出たから少し気持ちは落ち着いてるけど、もうちょっと小型の次世代携帯ゲーム機が触りたい。物理キーの無いスマートフォンでは満たされない欲望を満たしたい。
