I consider his work a piece of art. Story, characters and system fit well.

I think firing him is a bit harsh more like he should never be let in full control of a game ever again.

Should the people behind DMC 2 be fired?

Should Nomura be fired with Coded/Re:Coded?

For that matter should anyone be fired for trying something a little different?

The question of should is difficult to answer because of the divisive opinion of the FFXIII saga.

But let's ask: What is the question of will happen?

It's actually close to zero. Japanese business culture don't have a habit of firing people for lousy performance even if you caused the company to lose a million dollars. They don't fire you until you want to leave. Basically, they hardly ever fire people. When you get a job, a job is for life.

So, no, it won't happen under most circumstances. At the very drastic, they'd just pressure him into resignation, which he may or may not feel, but nobody will be fired.

No, I don't think he should be fired.

Promote the man, and make him head director for life.
