Resident Evil producer revises opinion on action focused design
Well, at least they learned.
Resident Evil producer Masachika Kawata has told Videogamer that an action focused direction for the series was probably not a right choice. He says that after taking the feedback of people his opinion has slightly changed.
Earlier, Capcom had said that pure horror games don’t have a market and the genre needs to adapt to the changing market conditions.
“Looking at user feedback from the last couple of games, I’ve started to slightly revise my opinion on that matter,” he said.
“I still think that, for example, bringing Resident Evil: Revelations to consoles falls within what I was saying, where it’s a game that contains classic Resident Evil elements but it also has features that modern gamers expect in a game. Hopefully it can appeal to both camps.”
He also revealed that it was important to take risks but the core focus of the series which is horror won’t be abandoned.
“Going forward is the most important thing to me and the future of the series. No matter what, we’re always going to have to focus on horror and fear as the main core pillar of the series. That’s something I think that is not going to change.”
