NieR: Automata Director Yoko Taro has expressed on Twitter that he wants to see a PS Vita successor. While he mentioned that the release of the Nintendo Switch helps, he would prefer a smaller next-gen handheld.
Here is what he said on Twitter:
VITA の後継機が欲しいなあ。Switch が出たから少し気持ちは落ち着いてるけど、もうちょっと小型の次世代携帯ゲーム機が触りたい。物理キーの無いスマートフォンでは満たされない欲望を満たしたい。
I want a Vita successor. While I feel a bit relieved since the Switch appeared, I’d like a slightly smaller next-generation portable game machine. I’d like to satisfy the desire that cannot be satisfied by smartphones, that don’t have physical buttons.
While Sony has no plans for a new portable system at the moment, we are sure that Yoko Taro is not the only person who wants a new PlayStation portable console.
