It has been announced that the game NightCry, the spiritual successor to Clock Tower will be getting a PC port soon. The game’s director Hifumi Kono revealed that the game would need a Kickstarter campaign to make PC a viable option, but that ‘PC is the version he most wants to make’, during an interview with Polygon.
Kono told Polygon that, "The fans reaction was basically, 'Yeah, we've been waiting for this. Great. But is this only for Vita or only for mobile?’ There were a lot of disappointed voices."
According to Kono, mobile platforms were chosen mostly due to budget constraints. The game was first announced for the console PS Vita and mobile devices. This concered Kono, as the platforms to some fans is unfit in a modern horror survival experience.
He said, "Early on, I was concerned about playing a horror game on a smaller screen. Maybe a tablet would be different, but still it's not a big screen. So yeah, I always wanted to bring it to the bigger screen."
A live action NightCry teaser from the game's creative producer and filmmaker Takashi Shimizu was revealed earlier this month.
