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.

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.'"
