Square Enix launched a new online survey for its Japanese account users asking various questions about what fans would like to see from Team Asano. The survey may prove useful toward determining Team Asano’s development cycle following Octopath Traveler II.
Team Asano is one of Square Enix’s development studios that primarily focuses on smaller titles and turn-based JRPGs. Most notably, the studio’s rise to prominence came with the use of the beloved HD-2D engine. Team Asano has grown substantially and developed highly successful projects for Square Enix such as Triangle Strategy and Octopath Traveler II.
Square Enix’s latest Japanese survey asks fans to consider what games they would like to Team Asano to develop as remakes or remasters. If desired, Team Asano fans may request for remakes or remasters outside of Square Enix IPs when taking the survey. Further, the survey asks fans about what genre Team Asano would develop in next.
Many of the survey’s questions are rather straightforward. However, questions about potential Team Asano remakes and remasters may help decide the studio’s next direction. Additionally, the survey may influence Team Asano to develop outside of the turn-based JRPG genre if fans show enough support.
Currently, it’s unknown whether the survey will be made available outside of Japan. The survey lasts until February 8 in Japan (February 7 in North America), and its exclusive to Square Enix Japan account holders (Thanks, Noisy Pixel).
