Hyung-Tae Kim dropped very explicit statements in a Famitsu interview that many can take as a serious admission for a sequel to Stellar Blade. It came about when asking about the age of the characters, a detail that is not mentioned in the game, but would help put a timeline to the events.

To this question, Hyung-Tae Kim responds with a cheeky “Perhaps it will be revealed in the next movie.” The interview has been translated into English from Japanese, so we believe the term “movie” refers to a second game in the series.

This surprised the interviewer, and his exclamation was met with another quick reply, saying if we are curious about the age, then to enjoy this game and look forward to a sequel. The admission of a sequel to the title is going to excite even more people than just the lore hunters. It could be a simple joke from Kim, but current sentiments would justify a sequel.

A photo mode was added recently to the title, allowing players to capture the beauty of the game. This no doubt further fueled the controversy over the character design and exaggerations for the same. However, despite these controversies, Stellar Blade has proven to be a substantial experience.
