An exclusive interview conducted by gc-navi.jap with a producer who worked on Valkyria for PS3. When asked what he thinks about the game industry he replied:
"Interviewer: Tell us about your take of the future of the game industry..?
Nishino: There is a problem with the platforms .. I feel confused that games like Wii Fit sell.. They aren't games.. I did make some casual titles too.. But really.. Wii Fit and Wii Sports should be the gateway for the nongamers.. But ultimately they should play proper games like Valkyria Chronicles."
--Finally, please tell us your thoughts about the gaming industry; present and future.
Nishino: First off, there's the issue of what is happening with game hardware. Looking at "Wii Fit", that isn't in the realm of games anymore. I have mixed feelings when these types of titles end up being top sellers. I used to develop casual titles and would like to see said titles to be a catalyst for converting casual gamers to mainstream gamers. In the end, though, I would really like to see casual gamers try titles games which can be classified as games, such as "Valkyria Chroniles".
