Wii U News: Atsushi Inaba elaborates on Kamiya’s Wonderful 101comments

Platinum games wild child, Hideki Kamiya, caused a stir yesterdy when he made it known Wonderful 101 was a short game. Platinum game producer Atsushi Inaba took to twitter to clear things up. Via mynintendonews, the twitter comments were translated. You can check it out below:

“So it looks like ‪@PG_Kamiya‬ has caused another bit of controversy. What he is saying is his basic approach to how he creates an action game.

“The idea is rooted in that you shouldn’t pad your game with content users won’t enjoy in order to control play time to the end of the game. It isn’t something he wants to do, or thinks you should do.

“BTW, if you didn’t know ‪@PG_Kamiya‬ is the kind of game director who will pack as much content into the game as he can until he is satisfied. If we were to give in to all of his desires, the game we’d ship would probably be some super-long action game that no one would beat.

“I’ve been teamed up with ‪@PG_Kamiya‬ as his producer for a long time now, and game length is something I’ve never once worried about. That means both the length of a single play-through and the replayability of the game. Never worried once. Never. Actually, my job really is to be the one who says ‘This is too %^&* long! Cut it!’

“Of course, even though ‪@pg_kamiya‬ didn’t intend for people to jump to their own conclusions, they did. In this case, that conclusion was ‘So TW101 is going to be short then?!’

“Let me make my own conclusion: TW101 will be so much fun you are going to wear out your Wii U GamePad. You will have plenty of fun playing it for the first time, and just as much fun playing it over and over again. Actually, the Wii U GamePad is pretty sturdy, so you probably won’t wear it out… And I’m sorry I can’t explain to you in exact terms why I think you will have so much fun with TW101.

“I promise there will be plenty of news about the game in the days and weeks to come. But I will say this – Everyone here is working incredibly hard to make sure you say two things about TW101. One: I’m happy I bought a Wii U! — Two: I’m happy I bought The Wonderful 101!”
