Q&A: Ninety Nine Nights Producer Tak Fujii On The Extreme Differences Between East And West

As Western design philosophies have taken on increasing market dominance, how do Japanese designers view their differences -- and what do they see as their mandate as they aim to keep pace? Ninety Nine Nights II producer Tak Fujii sees an important marriage of scenario and distinctive technology evolution as a primary goal.

The newly-launched Ninety Nine Nights II is an extreme hack and slash game in the vein of Dynasty Warriors or Sengoku Basara, but versus its competitors boasts some one million troops to dispatch of simultaneously. The game releases this week, and was developed by Feelplus under Q Entertainment, and is being published in North America by Konami.

Gamasutra got a chance to speak with Konami-side producer Fujii about the game's unique qualities. Fujii previously spent several years working on the Pro Evolution Soccer franchise, familiarizing himself with Western game taste there.

The guys first language is not english.. grow up.

calm down. no one is making fun of his dialect - it's the way he was acting during that conference. Not being able to speak English and acting like a total drugged up douche are two different things.

boring pointless interview. japanese developers in their little world still think they are best, well you are not. We are not living in 90s back when you would have western games put in corner and above that write "western dog shit". His game is stupid and just another generic japanese games, no one cares about and here he is talking how they have to change, ok. maybe HHG can help him, he seems to know stuff

For starters, try making games without little elf-looking children as the main protagonists. It's like, gaming for pedophiles. Ok, so I exaggerate a little, but the majority of Japanese-made games seem geared to a very young audience. Back when I was fourteen that was ok but now that I'm a little older (alright, a lot older) they don't have the same appeal. Especially rpg's. I can't stand jrpg's. Gotta go western every time.
