Keiji Inafune was always vocal about the decline of the Japanese market; so much that he poured out his feeling plenty of times. Again, he advises the Japanese industry on what to do to stop the decline.

He said that they needed to work with foreign developers who are pretty much advanced when it comes to technical capabilities and only by doing that they can ensure growth, Inafune said to Wired.

“Not just paying them money and letting them make whatever they think is good, but really working together, coming up with new ideas together and discussing how to make something brand new. That would result in a chemical reaction in a good way. There’s no way that Japan can be on their own anymore.”

“But in Japan, Japanese people only learned from former Japanese games and they haven’t admitted that American games are more fun right now,” he said.

“So they’re not learning from the foreign market at all. They’re only learning from former Japanese titles. That’s why they’re only selling in Japan.”
