Spectrobes producer Kentaro Hisai chats with Cubed3 over the development of the DS game, and how it has been compared to Pokemon. Hisai did not explicitly state the game will become a series, but he's hopeful that Spectrobes can live on in the future.
It is not everyday you see a company take major risks in this Industry. However, when Disney announced that it was going to build a new franchise in Spectrobes, many were clearly shocked. Not only was this to start off as a computer game, rather than anime first, it would be exclusively released on Nintendo's touch-screen portable, the DS, rather than across multiple formats. But it certainly paid off as the game has been a massive worldwide smash hit! Cubed³ caught up with the company to talk about the DS title and more.
