Nintendo’s stretchy arena fighter ARMS  is one of the most unique games — let alone fighting games — to come out on any system. Its unique combat, controls, and character designs have endeared quite a number of people to it.

This week’s issue of Famitsu includes an interview with the director behind ARMS, Kosuke Yabuki. As part of the interview, Yabuki was asked about the future of the game, including whether or not he would like to see a sequel. Responding to this, Yabuki stated that since the game was less than a year old, they will continue to work on updates to it. That said, he also said that he would eventually like to continue the game’s story, someday.

Whether or not that means we’ll get a sequel, it’ll probably take a while before that happens. Yabuki is, at the moment, still busy with the game — specifically preparing for its official launch in South Korea on April 12.
