Takeuchi: “Cultural differences” prevent Japanese working with western devs

Big-time Capcom producer Jun Takeuchi – Lost Planet, Resident Evil 5 – reckons western developers can’t work with Japanese developers thanks to culture.

“The core elements of [Lost Planet 2] were developed in Japan, while the music and some of the language details were handled overseas”, he said in an internal interview.

“Cultural differences don’t allow for the smooth collaboration between Japan and developers overseas.”

Highly progressive thinking there, Jun. Thanks, Kotaku.
