Katsuhiro Harada looking to announce two new titles in 2014

Editor's note: Earlier, we reported that these two titles were fighting game related. We'd just like to point out that Harada did not specify what genre these titles may be.

In 4Gamer's end-of-the-year batch of interviews, the publication caught up with Tekken series producer Katsuhiro Harada in order to talk about what 2014 may hold for the Namco Bandai producer.

Harada says that he's been hard at work developing multiple free-to-play titles, (Soul Calibur: Lost Swords, and Tekken Revolution), and also helping Sony Computer Entertainment change the structures of the console gaming industry.

The Namco Bandai representative states that although the Tekken series is his life's work, he has also been working on numerous other projects simultaneously. Harada hopes to announce at least two of these mystery titles in 2014, and feels this is something he "must do."

Hit the jump to read what he had to say.
“Tekken is one of my life’s works, and while I can’t say much here, together with the titles we were going to announce this year, I’m also working on several other titles simultaneously with Tekken. From there, I’d like to announce at least two of those titles in 2014, and I feel that it’s something I must do.”

The Tekken producer goes on to say that there are a few titles he and his team have been working on quietly, behind-the-scenes, and there are others they have been thinking about starting on. He says that he may summon the assistance of his Twitter followers if they hit a road block with ideas.

As of right now, we're not quite sure what these two titles Harada hopes to announce could be. Namco Bandai fans can look forward to Soul Calibur: Lost Swords this year, and hopefully, we'll finally get more information on the Capcom / Namco cross over, Tekken X Street Fighter, that was announced quite a long time ago.

Let us know what titles you think we'll see from Namco Bandai this year in the comments below.
