While Capcom is currently reveling in the success of modern hits like Monster Hunter World, Resident Evil VII, and Devil May Cry 5, they also have a huge back catalog of incredible franchises that are dormant. Everything from Strider Hiryu to Final Fight to Darkstalkers, Capcom has some amazing games that have yet to reappear. Possibly one of the most heartbreaking is the short-lived yet much-loved Power Stone.
Game designer Hideaki Itsuno recently sat down with The Guardian to give a brief background on the development of the cult series. Itsuno talks about the move from a 2D camera system to the isometric 3D one it ended up with, as well as the inspiration for the setting.
The interview ends with Itsuno saying:
“I still get messages from fans about the game. People tweet requests to me to make another Power Stone, which I’d love to do if I got the chance. It would be a particularly great fit for the Nintendo Switch.”
We think so too!
While I wouldn’t hold my breath for Power Stone 3 anytime soon, it is nice to see a creator holding love for their wacky series from a few decades ago and be willing to make another one.
