  • uhawww

    I’m ok with this.
    After finishing Asura’s Wrath not long ago, I’m all for CC2 working on more original titles.

  • 浪黒雷 (ro-kurorai)

    This guy is one of the most awesome, charismatic and likable Japanese CEOs in the gaming industry.

    • Zuhri69

      Because he knows what he wants and continue on producing games that he likes. Other CEO’s should learn from him.

        The quality of their games is mind blowing. I never played the broken bond (360 exclusive Naruto game) but I’ve heard it’s the only one that could match CC2’s quality. I’ve still never seen a more faithful recreation of Konahagakure in any medium besides the original Manga/Anime than in the original UNS for PS3. It was a PS3 exclusive but it featured a fully exploratory 3D modeled re-creation of Konahagakure as the game’s hub. They ditched it for the sequels because it cost lots of time to model. Still, UNS1, the PS3 exclusive, is by far my favorite entry in the series as the Ougi (UJ) are the most spectacular, OTT action I’ve ever seen in video games.

        Simply watch them on youtube and you’ll see what I mean.
        I love CC2 and will support them as long as they create games.

          I agree completely. Also hoping one of the original games are a Mixed Media Project like .hack was, cause CC2’s worlds are just so good *_*

    • After seeing the guy partake a marathon in Paris, he certainly earned my respect for him….

  • Blaz

    Oh yes, yes… Im ready to give my moneys

  • This and Platinum Games; the hope of what’s left of Japanese gaming.

    • DrForbidden

      You forgot Atlus.

      I have nothing against CC2, and MAtsuyama seems like a pretty nice guy, but in all fairness, yet another Naruto game doesn’t really contribute much to the continued improvement of Japanese games. Original IPs, yes. Tie-ins from other properties in manga and anime, not so much.

    Hope CC2 will make a Bleach game in the future.

  • Aldridge517
