Weekly Famitsu celebrated its 1,234th issue this week with an interview with several game creators abouth their thoughts on the future. Among the creators were Capcom's Hideaki Itsuno, Grasshopper Manufacture's Gouichi Suda, and Tecmo Koei's Kenichi Ogasawara
Dragon's Dogma might be a stupid title, but the game is a stunner. Slated for a 2012 release, it's an action game that Capcom game designer Hideaki Itsuno has wanted to make for years.
The first time I saw Dragon's Dogma, I thought that the creators of the recent Devil May Cry sequels were making a mash-up of God of War and The Elder Scrolls. And I thought that that was a bad idea, a bad use of the labor of the largest development team to ever create a game for Capcom.
