To be honest, Sony are far more willing to revisit more niche titles than, say, Nintendo, who are perfectly fine letting their series die in obscurity despite fan demands.
I don't agree with that at all. They feel about the same at best, prioritizing what's more popular over what isn't, which of course makes sense from a business standpoint, but it is always disappointing when a cool series fades to obscurity. Nintendo just doesn't have time to make another F-Zero that'll sell poorly compared to yet another Mario Kart that'll sell like crazy for essentially the same genre, but they still try. They still force Pikmin out as it is Miyamoto's baby, despite them always underperforming. They've practically adopted Bayonetta at this point. They'll let someone like Sakurai revive something like Kid Icarus that was dead for the longest if a dev comes along and actually wants to work on an older property like that. It just takes someone actually wanting to make that game first. Even stuff like Golden Sun got as fair a shake as you can expect them to give it when they just weren't selling or received that well in general. Mother is also basically MIA, because the person who poured their passion into those games is satisfied with leaving it where it is.
You can definitely see the image shift in Sony during the PS4 era. They don't really have a handheld to make games for anymore, and for their consoles they'd rather go with big budget cinematic titles and focus on all that than even including sizzle reels of lots of smaller games you'd see at their conferences during the PS3 era. I just don't think there's a place for Patapon, Loco Roco, or Ape Escape in the current Sony. Twisted Metal seems maybe doable, but that'd require it to actually sell, and honestly we're almost to the point where that franchise feels like a game that belongs over at Xbox instead tonally. I wonder if that audience would support it more if it was available on that system instead or as well.
Edit: The only place I could see us getting a new Patapon, Loco Roco, or Ape Escape title is in VR. Ape Escape in VR actually sounds pretty dope tbh. I hope they do that eventually.
