Takuma Endo, president of developer Acquire, the studio ideal known for the Tenchu and Shinobido games, has stated he thinks Japanese developers need to spend less effort trying to emulate Western devs and focus on creating experiences suited to their own abilities.
His statements come from a debate held last week at London’s Japan Foundation, which we attended.
Discussing the future of Japanese games development, Endo advised fellow devs: “We must create titles that fit our abilities, rather than copying the West – and that particularly applies to art styles. And we must develop odd games.”
He also highlighted potential issues the next generation of consoles could bring about, making specific reference to the rising cost of game development.
“I’m worried, for example, if the production costs for games on the Xbox 720 or PS4 are doubled. The production costs from the PlayStation to PS2 doubled, and somewhere between doubled and tripled from PS2 to PS3,” he said.
Keep an eye out for a full feature on the event tomorrow.
