maybe they can get Sakaguchi to join them?

Level-5 and Atlus are now the best JRPG makers, they just to bring their games to the HD generation.

nah. Purchase of Eidos saved them. Deus Ex, Tomb Raider, Hitman all look awesome. Plus they have more games coming. They are turning to the west. Old SE is dead. You will see almost complete switch to western style of games. Except for milking of FF for few more years until it dies.

good, maybe there he will be able to make games again.
Troll-without-Bridge  +   1180d ago
Its a shame that all he will be doing is family games (according to the article)

I hope he's happy at level 5, great developer.

Hopefully he will enhance the quality of Level 5's games. They haven't been bad this gen, but not that great either.
