Kawata: Japanse developers have difficulty to develop for next generation

In an interview with GameRush.nl Masachika Kawata (Resident Evil 5) told he thinks it's logic Japanse developers have difficulty developing for the next generation consoles. Developing for the next generation is easier for people who are used to developing for PC.

Kawata thinks his team and everybody at Capcom is doing a great job in the production of Resident Evil 5. And of course they feel pressured. Not only there's the huge success of Resident Evil 4, but also just by making a Resident Evil game people get high expectations.

Kawata wasn't very clear on the possibilty for a PC version of his game; "When the fans want it, we will consider developing it." (Dev, PS3, Resident Evil 5, Xbox 360)

Indeed
Japanese devs doesn't have enough Technical experience as western devs do (they had a lot of experience developing PC games in the past)

But then again, Japanese devs still make better games (Gameplay wise and graphics wise)

I mean just look at resident evil 5 and MGS4 and FFXIII ... Technical and artistic achievement

The larger studios are still good at graphics, the smaller ones are mediocre.

I think that difference in graphical prowess is smaller when you compare large and small western studios.

Many western developers take inspiration from the Japanese developers and their focus on art direction. Mirror's Edge is the latest example of that.

Speaking of good art direction, I wish Sega would release a new Jet Set Radio game. Or Panzer Dragoon. Panzer Dragoon Orta and Jet Set Radio Future were the main reasons I purchased an Xbox last gen.

"The larger studios are still good at graphics, the smaller ones are mediocre."

Look at the size of Remedy (one of the smallest developers) and you will see that with the recent screens of "Alan Wake", this comment is not entirely true. It really depends on the individual artists in the studio and how much time/money they have to put into a title.

Not Capcom. Lost Planet, Dead Rising plus Street Fighter IV and RE5 to come.

Am i the only one, not that interested in RE5 anymore? :\
BYE  +   2644d ago
Yeah, it looks like a generic shooter, I hope there will be enough quiet sequences with puzzles and atmosphere, the stuff that defines a RE game.

In the interview on GameRush you can read something which goes like the following:

"The stuff we've shown is mostly open areas with lots of action. I can promise you there will enough narrow areas with scary moments in it."

(something like that...)
