Keiji Inafune Interview Transcription:

Developer Interview: Keiji Inafune
Capcom Managing Corporate Officer
Global Head of Research & Development



"Hi, I'm Keiji Inafune, I lead game development here at Capcom.

When Nintendo first told me about the Nintendo 3DS and its 3D screen I was really surprised. I was waiting for a system with such powerful processing ability. It is very attractive. Capcom games tend to eat up a lot of machine power, including graphics. Everyone at Capcom wants to make games with the best graphics. The Nintendo 3DS can help make that happen.

That feature, which may not sound fancy, is what I'm most excited about when I tested the hardware. We want to make great games to not put the hardware to shame, so please look forward to it.

The Resident Evil series, I want people to play it on the Nintendo 3DS. This will be a complete original. As a game, it will make you want to explore all sorts of secrets. I think 3D images make players wonder what's at the end of the hallway or what's behind the furniture. We're making it so it's really like watching a movie in 3D, so it's very engaging. Zombie hordes will come at you with more behind it, and when you see that it will make you think you have to shoot faster. By the game being in 3D, it can bring more fun and excitement to the players.

We've been making several Resident Evil games, but this one will be the real thing. It will be a complete original, similar to Resident Evil 5. I hope you'll take a look at the show floor.

It's not out on E3, but we're also working on Super Street Fighter 4 for the Nintendo 3DS. It's a game that's made for 2D, but I really like the way those 2D elements appear in 3D. I like it a lot."

I wonder how long before we get to actually see this. RE PSP is MIA. Hopefully though we'll see that at SOny conference.

donny: I know they said that. But Capcom is not likely to make a new RE for each system when the 3DS obviously does everything the PSP can technologically.






Where are those pictures from? Have I missed any articles about RE on 3DS or PSP?

Where are all these third-party 3DS screens coming from? If those are actually realtime, they look like everything I'd have realistically hoped for from 3DS on a technical level - much better than Kid Icarus.

Yeah, plus there was no location like that to explore with Sheva and with Chris wearing his original BSAA uniform..plus if you look really close characters models are more ..simple than the PS3/360 version..

Though..still..holy shit! :O!

EDIT:
Looking closely, seems that's Jill..brown haired..exploring a mansion..and Hunk wasn't there in the DLC-chapter.

I think that's what Capcom WANTS it to look like. It will be interesting to see what they actual end up shipping, though.

in fact, I'm fairly sure those are RE5-engine on low-settings shots.

This has to be the same game as what was announced last year.

We literally only knew the name of RE Portable, and now we have something more concrete.

Capcom has a lot to gain by putting this game on the PSP given the sales of Monster Hunter in Japan. The 3DS version can also be played without the 3D. It only makes sense... but it wouldn't be unprecedented either for this to be another RE3/CODE: Veronica, REmake/Outbreak, Outbreak File 2/RE4 or REUC/RE5 situation. That much is true as well.

I don't think those shots are in-game. There seems to be anti-aliasing.

oh, I know, but I question how much time they were given to throw this together.

Yeah, I'm hoping the PSP version isn't vaporware like DMC PSP. :/

they are probably 6000x3000 AA'd to fuck and downsampled. That's how most PSP bullshots are.

This (and some of the other third party games) look SO much better than Kid Icarus that I find that really hard to believe.
