Tweets coming at you on a sunny Summer weekend

So this week's Tweets of our favourite three Japanese developers carries some interesting information regarding the current projects they are working on.

Producer on beat-em-up Street Fighter IV, Yoshinori Ono, responds to a fan's request for new DLC in SF: Arcade Edition regarding the potential inclusion of Elena (keeping things ambiguous as usual). He also confirmed that fans should not expect Street Fighter X Tekken on other platforms beyond the 360, PS3 and Playstation Vita.

Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada talks about dragon radars and gaining the Gametrailers award for best fighting game at this year's E3 event in Los Angeles. He also commented on the mention that the game could be multiplatform, stating that it is too early a stage to truly say if this will be the case or not.

And Hideo Kojima comments on a show he went to see at the Dome Theater called Young Alive, The Future of the Opening IPS Cell, explaining that it features prolific voice actress Nana Mizuki and Shouzo Iizuka together with CG elements crafted in 3D to boot.

The games designer also reminisces on a photo from 20 years ago, showing him and former work colleagues who worked on earlier Metal Gear Solid games, wondering if the girl on the right in the was at the time the new recruit Sato-san (which you can see HERE)

An update not too much out of the ordinary from our famed developers then. Be sure to continue checking Honeyman-On for more weekly updates and feel free to leave any comments you want to in the section below.


The week's tweets talk of returns home, Tekken on iPhone and Saturday TV dramas

Hello again avid readers and welcome to this week's updates of our well known Japanese game developers. This time around we have tales of returning to Japan, iPhone games and dramas on Japanese TV station NHK.

Let's start with the latest update from Super Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono.

Returning from this year's E3 in Los Angeles, he explains that he has returned a heavy rain-ridden Japan which is no surprise given the country is in the middle of tsuyu (known to Westerners as rainy season).

He remarks that it feels that the tasks related to the presentations at E3 are done and dusted, charging up for the next project presentation he will have to give when he gets back to Capcom.

In response to a fan's question on his Twitter account as to whether Tekken will appear on the iPhone at some points, series producer Katsuhiro Harada replies that this is merely unconfirmed at this stage, adding that an iPhone Tekken game may just be a little difficult.

And Metal Gear Solid producer Hideo Kojima talks of a Saturday afternoon TV drama called Otokotachi no Tabiji (Journeys of Men for Western ears).

The film-minded game designer comments on the series' stars Shinichi Chiba and Masao Kusakari also starring in another drama together that carries the name of Jyujirou (Cross in English). He wonders if and when this will receive a DVD release, ever being the eager consumer of media.

Another interesting week in the lives of our three renowned games designers then. Feel free to leave any thoughts in the Comments section below, continue checking Honeyman-On for more Twitter updates and some original content in the near future as well (as soon as life calms down again).

This week's Tweets are great and interesting

Hello again and thanks for checking out Honeyman-On for the latest Twitter updates from our three main Japanese developers.

This week we have updates from Street Fighter IV producer Yoshinori Ono wanting to make sure that one of his followers returns home safely and has checked out the Himlock Dome. He also refers to something called WINERY which he bursts out in song at although what this is related to exactly, one can only guess.

Metal Gear Solid producer Hideo Kojima asks his followers if they have read the short story Satori in this month's issue of the magazine Da Vinchi, wanting to see how they felt about it.

And Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada has a follower that doesn't often remember his correct name for one of his followers, instead wanting to see if he could refer to them by their affectionate nickname of El Boro Harada Nachos or Erohana instead (together with funny face).

All in all, some brief and slightly exciting updates from our main developers at Capcom, Konami and Namco. Be sure to check Honeyman-On again where we will be able to check the updates of our favourite Japanese developers when next weekend comes around.


A very quick post for those interested in great mix tapes, check out my good freind Sebski's latest offering (via Mixcloud) and enjoy.
