According to Namco Bandai Partners VP, Olivier Comte Japanese game companies, developers and publishers are in demand because they can help game studios to top themselves. He said, “Many, many top studios right now are interested in working with Japanese publishers, absolutely a new phenomenon.”
“One reason is that they have reached a very high level of quality, it’s absolutely true. Top quality studios are always looking at how they can improve themselves.
They are used to speaking to Western companies but speaking to Japanese companies is completely different in terms of art design, in terms of making games… they’re not the same. I think it brings a new sense, a new feel of how to make videogames.”
