In addition to Hybrid Heaven and Castlevania 3D, Konami is apparently readying a few more Nintendo 64 games for release in 1998.
Konami's head of N64 development, Konami Computer Entertainment Osaka (KCEO)'s Katsuya Nagae said in a recent interview in The 64 Dream, "There will be a Goemon sequel next year. We are thinking it will have two-player simultaneous play.
"We are aiming to release Hybrid Heaven at the end of next year. We have two more unannounced titles -- one is a simulation/RPG title. It's not a sequel to a game in another series. The other is a 3D shooting game."
Imagineer has been a big Japanese N64 supporter, and in 1998 plans to increase the amount of games it releases.
Imagineer's executive director Seiji Tashiro told The 64 Dream, "We are planning to release a total of 15 to 16 N64 titles next year. Among them, we have a Pokemon-like RPG. We are thinking of interesting gimmicks for the titles in terms of hardware. We also have a puzzle game and a realistic racing game. We will officially announce these at the end of this year or the beginning of next year."
