Watch out, Japan! Western game developers are out to getcha. This concerns Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi a bunch. But should it?
Takeuchi confesses to Japanese magazine Famitsu: "I'm worried about the movements of Western developers. Japan is now their target — it's the last big marketplace. The truth is that Western studios are making great games, and they're going to continue to do so next year too."
The Capcom producer hopes that his company (and other companies, too) can churn out big hits to lure Japanese players back. "It's not good if Japanese developers are making games that can't be enjoyed by Japanese people," he adds. Competition is a good thing, and something that will hopefully help all players benefit.
Better Western games, better Japanese games, happier gamers everywhere.
