DIGITAL DAYDREAMS: A TALE OF A JAPANESE VIDEO GAME CREATOR

Hiroshi Matsuyama



 

“CyberConnect2 is a pain to deal with.”


After lifting themselves to fame with the .hack series, CyberConnect2 proved that the concept that licensed games are immediately bad with their mega-hit game adaptations of Naruto and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Their incredible success in the licensed game genre has led this game development company based in Fukuoka to being praised by those within and outside of the industry. Why does CC2 never make compromises in regards to quality? What is the company’s secret to success that led them to releasing the NARUTO: Ultimate Ninja series, that has shipped over 13 million copies worldwide? The author of this book—who just happens to be a game creator and the president of CC2—explains the madness behind his digital daydreams, and how he makes those dreams into reality.


“It’s something that everyone can do, but something no one actually does. That’s all there is to it.”
