Inafune Hails Canadian Developers
Inafune collaborated with Canadian studio Blue Castle Games on zombie-sequel Dead Rising 2. Asked about Canada's growing importance to the videogame market Inafune told NowGamer: "I heard their share of the global market… I can't remember what it was, but they are getting very important now."
"There are lots of background reasons for it, tax relief and government policies and so on and so forth, but from the developers point of view, Canada is part of North America so you can sort of [include it as] North American," Inafune continued.
"But compared to Americans, Canadians are a bit… more serious, if you like. Also, compared to big cities such as Los Angeles, it's also a little bit cheaper. So they've got potential to be at the epicentre of videogame development."
Dead Rising 2 is out in the UK on 24 September – look out for NowGamer's vrdict nearer release, and check back for our full interview with Inafune later on today…
