Resi 5 producer "worried" about Western developers

resi51b.jpgIn an interview with Famitsu, Resident Evil 5 producer, Jun Takeuchi, has expressed concern that Western developers are slowly taking over the Japanese marketplace.

"I'm worried about the movements of Western developers," he said. "Japan is now their target - it's the last big marketplace. The truth is that Western studios are making great games, and they're going to continue to do so next year too.

"It's not good if Japanese developers are making games that can't be enjoyed by Japanese people," he went on.

"2009 will also see Resident Evil 5 finally released, and it'll also then see us on to our next step. We haven't shown what Capcom has in store for 2009 yet, so I hope we can surprise you all soon."

Thanks, Develop.
