Hudson representative John Master Lee held a Q&A thread recently, posters were invited to ask any Hudson-related questions they wanted. He revealed that a sequel to marble game Kororinpa might be on in the future.
"It's one of those games that hardcore gamers seemed so ready to write off, but ended up being a real treat for those who love a more casual experience. I loved the Apple level, where you can turn the apple all around and you have to navigate through the grooves".
"As for a sequel, it would be great to see one. If we did do one, it would be deeper and have more levels to better suit US gamer tastes. US gamers sure seem to demand more when it comes to gameplay depth and the amount of content in a game".
Despite some mediocre reviews from the press (not mine!), John says the game sold very well in the US, causing them to run out of inventory. Most promisingly, in a later response he said this:
"But I'm glad to see you LOVED Kororinpa. I think you'll be happy again in the next year!".
That sounds like a definite hint to a sequel, or some kind of ball-rolling game at least.
