Quote from: Keiji Inafune
«It's true that I shared dinner last night with Suzuki-san, and we talked about the issue of crowdfunding. The thing I said to Suzuki-san is that with the crowdfunding ... Of course you have to think of the players when creating a game, even if you belong to a big company, but for the collective funding you have to think even more for the players, since the connection between the players and you is much stronger, so you have to carefully understand what players want and explain 'this is a game that you want, please fund it'. "That kind of attitude is very important."»

At least Inafune didn't have an issue with licensing. If he's tried to make a Mega Man/Rockman game, he'd have had trouble.

I think that advice is pretty redundant when it comes to Shenmue though, if I'm honest. In fact, the main thing the players would want is the truest version of Suzuki's vision, I would argue.
