It's a proven fact that Japanese companies are better at making fighting games than Western companies. Just look at all the best fighting games, all Japanese made.The Japanese are just better at making games where deeper gameplay is more important and understand the intrinsic mechanics that go along with it.
If this game was made by the Japanese we would have gotten 10X better gameplay and RPG reps because the Japanese also understand how important RPGs are.
I knew this game was doomed from the start when I heard a random Western dev was making it.
TC has a point, ya'll should seriously stop denouncing this opinion.
Japanese fighters are undoubtedly superior to Western fighters in terms of depth and balance development. This is a huge reason why even Americans prefer Japanese fighters over Western ones. In fact, I can't even think of many western fighters outside of MK?
This also would have had a HUGE impact on the roster. Square Enix and maybe if Team ICO would most likely had been more compliant with a familiar, Japanese developer than a Greenhorn Western developer.
