Matsuzo Machida and Akifumi Kaneko, the men behind the classic JRPS series Wild Arms and Shadow Hearts, have teamed up for a joint project that will revive both games at the same time — spiritually, at least. Like Iga did with Bloodstained and Playtonic did with Yooka-Laylee, Machide and Kaneko are creating a pair of copyright safe lookalikes that allow them to do what they loved again. This interview with Gematsu tells more.
The games — Armed Fantasia: To the End of the Wilderness and Penny Blood — will play like Wild Arms and Shadow Hearts respectively.

The news just keeps getting better and better! My friends are going to freak out as well because the theme tune from Wild Arms 1 was literally playing in the background as they walked down the aisle during their wedding. Many thanks for letting us know the fantastic news! The Shadow Hearts games are some of my favorites because they have such a distinctive aesthetic, and as a result, I am excited for any game that maintains that aesthetic.

I will back the project on Kickstarter in the hopes that it is as enjoyable to play as it promises to be, and I will also contribute some money to the development of the game. Because it appears to have such potential, I have high hopes that it will be successful.

What a pleasant and welcome shock this was! Many thanks for letting us know the wonderful news, Peter. I gave Wild Arms a shot, but I just couldn't get into the game's style. On the other hand, Shadow Hearts Covenant is one of my top picks for video games of all time. It sounds like Pennyblood will be an investigation-based story, which is something I really enjoy reading about.
