    I actually thought this was a very good read & interview of the Mega Man creator.

    Have a read:
    http://www.gamespot.com/articles/mega-man-creator-on-japan-s-culture-of-fear/1100-6428379/

    What he says makes sense and true at the same time. It just makes it so important for all of the anticipated Japanese games and JRPGs as it determines how the Japanese gaming industry will function in the future.

    If all goes well, we'll see many Japanese game studios will gain the confidence to try to go for something different.... Different in a good way.

    Just have a read on the interview, trust me. It really does spark a good & meaty discussion.

    I hope that with this recent events, more japanese developer would start taking more into consideration the non-japanese market and that there´s demand for games made by them.

    On the other hand i´m fearing that they will only make games that they/fans are familiar with.

    As in "playing safe", right? They need a confidence boost to go well beyond that.
