Stephen Frost talks about Sega of Japan’s involvement in Shinobi 3DS

Siliconera has posted an interesting interview with Stephen Frost, the producer behind Shinobi 3DS. He talks a lot about the gameplay and how the whole system works, but also describes how the team works together with Sega of Japan:

They look through, they give feedback, and they comment on our decisions and stuff like that. From the get-go, they’ve been very supportive and very excited. Fundamentally, Shinobi has been a Japanese franchise, but they’re excited to see a North American version of it, not just for the American audience but also for the Japanese audience who is looking for a fresh take on the stuff they’ve been playing for a while.

It’s good to see that they work together so closeley, ensuring that the game feels like it belongs to the Shinobi franchise. Head over to Siliconera for more details!

    So agreed. I just wish Japanese developers understood more about the American game market.
