Shooter guru Makoto Asada left CAVE to head for MAGES. where he's working on an unannounced Xbox One title.
he is Shooter "guru".
Wow, this is good news. I wasn't a fan of those shooters and only because they just seem impossible to beat or play. But I would love to see a resurgence in that genre.
Who? Just because he is japanese it doesn't mean he is good. Heck, most japanese games now are trash and this is coming from a big jrpg fan from ps1-ps2 days.
Maybe you should read the article instead of making a silly comment :D You wouldn't need to ask yourself who he is.
He's making an Xbox One game...naturally he must be doubted and questioned.
More games the merrier....I suppose but the Japanese market is tanking...nobody believes me. You have individual talented devs leaving big studios and jumping on kickstarter..quite sad I wish I was rich, I'd hire all that talent and start a gaming revolution. Maybe we hear about this game at TGS...
"Japanese market is tanking" Yo, wanna hook me up with the blue stuff you got??
I don't even pay attention to names in the industry except for a handful. I think that there are so many different factors in a game that a developer can work on one awesome game and the next is a piece of garbage.
Deathsmiles, Espgaluda, Akai Katana and Do-Don-Pachi???? wtf. I've never even heard of these games until now.
Its because you play nothing but Uncharted, GoW, Infamous and Killzone. You should try different games.
Obviously you haven't spent longer than 5 minutes in the shoot em' up genre...
Why? I really love shoot em ups, but I won't buy an xbox one. Most japanese gamers, which mostly are the target audience, won't buy it either. Sigh..
Oh wow I cant believe this I wished more info was posted this is big news.
If you like retro shooters this is good news if not then you will probably pass on his games
I love shmups ( I still play radiant silvergun and ikrug, and sine mora amongst others). looking forward to this.
