... That they'll start releasing these games with the option to play them with the original japanese voices, and English subs.

You'd think they'd just add subs to the jp version and let you import it on region free consoles. That wouldn't really require much work.

From the interview, looks like mobile / social games had some negative impact for japan devs who made JRPG for console. But i hope devs like Konami, Capcom, or Sony will revive their popular JRPG such as Suikoden, Wild Arms, Legend of Dragoon, and Breath of Fire for PS4/next gen consoles.
