“Unemployed man” Hideki Kamiya continues to replace his YouTube channel within the wake of his departure from Platinum, holding the world at giant up to date on what he is been cooking, his opinions on onsen, and the final time he visited an aquarium.
All of which is a deal with, however Kamiya has been chatting about just a few videogame-related issues too, together with the probability of him ever teaming up with different legendary devs like Yoko Taro and Hideo Kojima. In brief? Kamiya reckons a team-up like that might simply trigger friction.
After a fan remarked that it might be nice if he ever made a recreation with Lifeless Or Alive creator Tomonobu Itagaki, Kamiya chuckled that he “[gets] this sort of remark so much,” noting that folks typically get excited in regards to the prospect of him working alongside Yoko Taro or Hideo Kojima particularly. “Look,” stated Kamiya straight into the digital camera, as if delivering the information that Christmas has been cancelled to a dewy-eyed 6 12 months previous, “It could be a DISASTER!”
“It does not work like in Dragon Ball, the place Goku fuses with different characters,” continued Kamiya, “Two folks with utterly totally different personalities and concepts would conflict. There isn’t any means you’d get an honest recreation of that.” Kamiya appears a bit exasperated—although in a good-humoured means—that the prospect retains getting introduced up. “Why is that onerous for folks to know?” he asks Japan at giant, “There’s a Japanese saying, possibly a proverb? ‘Too many captains will steer the ship up a mountain’… so there ought to solely be ONE CAPTAIN!”
So no Kojima/Kamiya collab for us within the close to future, I assume, as this might run counter to Kamiya’s strict naval rules. “That is simply how it’s with distinctive recreation creators,” he says. He in all probability has some extent, though I believe it might need extra to do with Kamiya himself slightly than “distinctive recreation creators” generally. He’s, in spite of everything, a person with very clear concepts about what he needs his video games to appear to be and who can typically be a bit, uh, abrasive.
Who is aware of? Maybe he’ll mellow out slightly as his day off work wears on. Perhaps all we’d like is just a few extra soothing aquarium visits earlier than we get the Steel Gear Rising sequel that includes Bayonetta that we have to make the world entire.
