Director of “Devil May Cry” and “Dragon’s Dogma” Hideaki Itsuno Hardware on the PlayStation 3 “Felt Disappointed”
Hideaki Itsuno, director of the video games Dragon’s Dogma and Devil May Cry, has stated that he “felt let down” by the PlayStation 3 technology.
Itsuno outlined the methods that Capcom programmers have implemented to improve the overall visual presentation of games for the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 in a recent interview that was released by Bokeh Game Studio.
“It was strange that we were able to work with so many translucent layers on the PlayStation and PlayStation 2 consoles. It would be as simple as layering one on top of the other to produce the desired visual effects, he explained.
On the other hand, since since the PlayStation 3, we haven’t been able to accomplish it. In this generation, everyone has had to fight for what they want. We were somewhat disheartened with the whole experience.
He went on to remark that he saw a significant difference between the production of Devil May Cry 3 for PS2 and the development of Devil May Cry 4 for PS3, both of which he directed.
“For me, this shift occurred simply between Devil May Cry 3 and Devil May Cry 4,” he stated. “It was only between those two games that I noticed it.” We were informed that we are not even allowed to repeat what we did in the past.
“For the past five years, our only focus has been on developing games for the PlayStation 2 that make effective use of translucent layers. On the PlayStation 3, we didn’t even have the option to consider using this strategy. I believe [developers] all across the world have had a difficult time.”
After a wait of ten years, the confirmation of Dragon’s Dogma 2 came in June of this year, and Itsuno is presently directing the game.
In addition to that, it is being built using the RE Engine, which was previously used for the development of Resident Evil Biohazard and Resident Evil Village, in addition to Monster Hunter Rise.
The original game is well-liked for its difficult combat, wide environment, and atmosphere, all of which helped it garner a large number of admirers.
It is currently uncertain when Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be made available for purchase or on which platforms it will run.
