Maximo 2 in the works
In a recent EGM interview, Capcom's David Siller announced that a sequel to Maximo: Ghosts to Glory will be developed in the future. The 3D action game has been a well-received game for the PS2 and a sequel is very good news to fans of the series. Maximo 2 (unofficially) will continue the great gameplay aspects of the original PS2 title, however, Capcom hopes to eliminate the "hop, skip and jump gameplay." Also, a more unique role will be given to the Grim Reaper, although no official details have been released.
One of the most interesting comments made by Siller is the addition of a possible 2D side-scrolling bonus game upon beating the Maximo 2. Japanese Illustrator Susumu Matsushita will once again be in charge of character development, which received very high attention in Ghosts to Glory.
Capcom themselves have not confirmed Siller's comments, however, a representative had this to say, "We are very pleased with the original Maximo and while there is no formal announcement stay tuned..."
