Keiji Inafune Wants To Restore Japanese Game's Glory

With the Japanese gaming industry and it's gamers not showing much interest in big title games anymore, it's a sad state in comparison to what it was in it's glory days especially in the action-adventure genres. From surprising master pieces like Okami, Shadow of The Collosus and Zelda series they're are now far and very few between.

Now Inafune want's to invigorate the Japanese development community again to bring back those glory days of surprising and innovative games by creating Recore into another potential Japanese master piece.

With Hidekya Kajima creating Scalebound and now Inafune himself creating Recore it seems Microsoft wants to bring that missed out potential to the US market where big title games are more popular than ever before especially in contention to some corporate media who tried to claim console and big games in the US is dying. As a result may influence the Japanese gaming industry once again.

if Kenji inafune re-introducing classic games im all for it.
im very sure fps open world games are boring now since 2006 ........ c'mon Kickstarter developers bring excitement back to video games . normal developers not doing it, same rehash from 2006 being made.
have not bought a game since 2002 NFS , 2003 R&C
that's SAD

Just create game console games that make the Japanese Kids want to play them instead of sticking to Mobile Phone Games.

Was thinking the same, the revival of the Japanese glory days... on a console that was dead before it even launched in Japan.

It really did. Like I came out of that with the hype for new games I haven’t felt since… well the better years of E3.

It was without a doubt one of the better showcases in years. There was plenty there that excited me. Something has been lacking in years on all platforms

Show was so good, it made me forget about that blue dragon rumor until the next day. Too many games to process.
