Inafune: Saying The Japanese Game Industry Is Doing Fine Is "Wishful Thinking"
Posted on Thursday, April 4 @ 06:30:45 PST by Alex_Osborn
Famed game designer Keiji Inafune recently addressed the current state of Japanese game development, saying flat out that they aren't where they need to be and any belief contrary to that is just "wishful thinking."
Some developers are saying [the] Japanese game industry is still doing fine, but that’s wishful thinking. Words are not enough, we must act and prove it. Unless at least a few titles from Japan make it to the top 10 games of the year worldwide, we won’t prove it.It's no secret that Japanese game development isn't nearly up to snuff with what it once was, as Western-developed games have taken over globally. Will the region ever be able to get back on track? Is Japan destined to create niche games that only satisfy the Japanese market? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
