Capcom writes: "PR Staff: Let's start by talking about you. You've said that you're a big movie fan. Has that had an impact on your work?
Takeuchi: Well, soon after joining Capcom, I was assigned to the team working on the original Resident Evil. Shinji Mikami was the director for that one. I was involved with production from the beginning of the series, and it was decided that the game would have a horror slant to it. At that time, if someone said "horror," you would immediately think of movies; since we were making a movie-like game, I knew my interests in movies would serve me well."
