Gust recently announced Yoru no Nai Kuni for PlayStation 3, 4, and Vita, but that isn't all the company has up its sleeves. Dengeki PlayStation sat down this week with Yoru no Nai Kuni director Keisuke Kikuchi, Atelier series director Yoshito Okamura, and Ar Tonelico and Surge Concerto series director Akira Tsuchiya to discuss the studio's goals for the upcoming year.

On Future Releases:
Keisuke: “Until now, Gust has released an Atelier game every year, and every several years a new Surge Concerto game. But there are a lot of titles I want to make outside those. And for that opportunity, we launched a new line. For this game, I’m also receiving feedback from Okamura (Atelier director) and Tsuchiya (Surge Concerto director).”

The Company's Goal this Year:
Okamura: “We still have news to deliver for fans waiting on the Atelier series.”
Tsuchiya: “If we can do interesting things with games both inside and outside, and collaborations with other game makers, I think that’ll be good.”

A Message for Gust’s Fans:
Okamura: “I’m sorry to keep you waiting for Atelier. A new game is still to come, so please look forward to it.”
Tsuchiya: “I want to work hard at appearing to be ‘even crazier than last year.'”
