CyberConnect2 CEO talks about the challenging development of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, says they went over budget

Doesn't sound like a pleasant experience

CyberConnect2 CEO Hiroshi Matsuyama recently answered some fan questions about their various projects, and one of the topics covered was the development of Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4. In the discussion, Matsuyama talks about some of the struggles that came up during the game's development, including budget issues. Check out his comments below.

“The development for Storm 3 was also hard. Even though it technically shouldn’t happen after 25 years, every year feels like our biggest battle yet. And as we break our previous records, it isn’t getting easier at all. Every year is hard.

So, looking back at Storm 4, there isn’t really much we could have done better. We were able to do everything that had to be done. That’s the reason why it took so long, why we got behind schedule. It’s also why we exceeded budget and ended up causing trouble to Bandai Namco Entertainment – why we ended up getting the publisher angry and ended up inconveniencing everyone. The result, nevertheless, was still a pretty good game.

It would be wrong to say that everything went alright though. Thankfully, many people helped and supported us. We are able to continue to develop games every day.”

Tarsier Studios moving on from the Little Nightmares franchise

The nightmare is over

Tarsier Studios, the team behind the Little Nightmares franchise, has revealed that they're moving on. The brand is owned by Bandai Namco, so there could certainly be another installment down the line, but Tarsier Studios won't be involved. The company is moving on to something else altogether. You can see their full statement on the matter below.

“For the last 6 years, our mission at Tarsier Studios has been to create mesmerizing worlds. Little Nightmares was our first attempt and was a huge success. I personally love how Little Nightmares has gathered fans around the world over the course of the last 4 years. From the fan art, extensive fan theories and genuine reactions, it all has been amazing to witness. Our collaboration with Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe has been extremely satisfying, they listened to our creative vision and took our crazy ideas and ambitions to heart.

That being said, it is bitter sweet to announce that we are leaving the world of Little Nightmares behind us. Little Nightmares will always be dear to us at the studio. Since being acquired by the Embracer Group in December 2019, it is now time for us to embark on a new chapter, create new IPs and explore new worlds. Personally I am very excited to see what our studio creates and counting down the days until we can welcome our fans.”

A MF who specialises in speed. He has a skill that allows him to accelerate every time he passes by an opponent, and when he gains momentum, his mobility is unstoppable!
- Overhead Lift: This skill lifts the ball past opponents and is followed by a powerful jump.
- Rovesciata: This is an overhead kick with one of the highest power and speed ratings amongst all aerial shots.

- Ryoma Hino: The player with super strong power, equal to that of Hyuga!
His skill move makes use of his power and skill, and activates in the early stage of the game. Once activated, his aggressive attacks will never stop!

He’s an above average player with a high skill level. Although he is a DF, he also has good offensive ability.
- Sandstorm Shot: It is a long ranged shot with only a moderate drop in power, so you can use it from distance.
- Mirage Chapeau: This is an astonishing dribble move that feints a loss of footing. His offensive value and technique values will increase massively when the skill succeeds!
