'The RPG genre is already split in two,' Fallout influenced Atelier Ayesha, says dev

PSU writes:

"One famed JRPG director has noticed a growing divide between Western and Eastern role-playing experiences, and cites influence from the former in developing the latter.

Earlier today, PSU sat down with Yoshito Okamura, Gust Game Director behind Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk, an RPG that released this week exclusively on PlayStation 3. During the interview, Okamura-kun expressed that the current RPG market has largely divulged into two sectors--one being realistic, and the other involving 'traditional systemic game play.'"

The story is too old to be commented.
