A portion of a C3 interview with The Takahashi Brothers…
C3: A few years ago it was stated by one of the Takahashi brothers that Mario Golf was in development for DS. What ever happened to this project? Was it cancelled or can gamers eager for some touch-golfing fun expect news in the near future?
The Takahashi Brothers: It is not that we have not bothered with DS. As a fact Mario Golf and Mario Tennis on mobile game consoles are still popular and we have requests to make the sequels. It would be immense fun if there was a golf game that uses the touch screen, with scenario mode, some character growth system and if it was made by people other than us! To be honest this type of game is very difficult to make, since it is like making two games, a golf game and an RPG.
C3: Or how about bringing the We Love sports series to DS as well?
The Takahashi Brothers: That sounds like a brilliant idea. I’ll think about it.
