"In the world of home console role playing games, there seems to be three tiers of production values. In the high-budget and high production values you have Japanese RPG developers like SquareEnix, Level 5, and Tri Ace, pushing our multimillion dollar games like Final Fantasy XIII, White Knight Chronicles and Resonance of Fate. In the middle, you have Japanese RPG developers like Atlus, NIS and Gust who are producing games budgets that are not too conservative, but not breaking the bank, they produce games like Catherine, Disgaea, and Atelier Meruru. Then you have the game developers that push lower budget titles like Idea Factory and Compile Heart, behind games like Hyperdimension Neptunia and Record of the Agarest War Zero. There are fans of all those companies in the USA, as evidenced by having the developers of Neptunia and Record of the Agarest War as Guests of Honor for Anime Expo."
