Japanese-Western Collaborations Are “Important” For Games Industry, Says Capcom Producer

While many gamers are still skeptical over the way in which well-known Japanese IPs are increasingly being handed over to Western development teams, Capcom producer Motohide Eshiro believes the industry should be more open to collaborations between East and West.

its important when it makes sense crapcom. rebooting DMC and changing it to a western styled game makes no sense. the majority of the people in the west want the japanese style back. i swear crapcom just damage control so more, its not gonna change the fact that DmC will be a flop and probably be end of the series in general. personally i'd rather see the end of the series than have another installment of the atrocity that ninja theory is making that could ruin the legacy of DMC even more.

Initial previews have actually been pretty positive, though.

I know that doesn't necessarily mean it will be a great game, and I admit I have my own problems with the Dante re-design etc., but hey - it just might turn out to be quite a fun blast.

I'll reserve judgement until I get chance to sample the final version.

Those possistive previews seem forced to be honest, like capcom are like

"If you want to keep getting press kits, early copies, behind the scenes gossip, money and previews to new games YOU WILL give dmc possistive articles to help us sell the game

Well, plenty of people who got hands-on with the DMC reboot at events like Eurogamer have been quite enthusiastic about it - and they're not paid-up members of the gaming press.

I admit that positive previews does not necessarily equal a good final game (just look at Amy and Steel Battalion), but I think that some people are so hostile to the Dante re-design and new approach that even of the game turns out to be pretty damn good, they'll hate it no matter what.

But will this DmC attract new fans while its obviously alienated old one? Will it honestly be a negative impact on old fans? Those are the big questions.

And if you really haven't noticed, as pointed out by your examples of Amy and Steel Battalion, there's a difference between reviewers and gamers.

It's nice, but not important. There are far more important things in the gaming industry right now that needs fixing than to worry about Japanese Anime games being turned into American movies. Capcom must honestly not have a lot of faith in DmC that they constantly have their PR team defending this game so aggressively.

Important, but not necessary.
