TGS ’09: Japanese developers love Project Natal


We’ve seen what Microsoft can do with Natal and now developers living in the heart of the gaming world are taking high interest in Microsoft’s new techology for Xbox 360.

New interview tapes with Capcom’s Keiji Inafune, Namco’s Yozo Sakagami, Tecmo’s Keisuke Kikuchi, Kojima Pro’s Kenichiro Imaizumi, Sega’s Kenichiro Nagoshi, FromSoftware’s Masanori Takeuchi, and Konami’s Naoki Maeda have been released for TGS and they all seem to love the new motion controller. Inafune sees it as an “enhancement” rather than a replacement to the way we play games.

Listen to what the rest have to say.
