Dengeki Online, the website of the renown Japanese magazine, published a roundtable interview with some of the most important Japanese game developers. The focus of the questions was obviously PlayStation 4, which will launch in the land of the Rising Sun on 22th February. Among all of it, we found a particularly interesting piece of information coming from Yohei Shimbori, Director of Team Ninja inside Tecmo Koei Games.

The fourth question by Dengeki asked developers “What part of PlayStation 4 they wanted to challenge?”, and Yohei answered with the following statement:

"I would like to achieve a cutting edge representation of soft body physics by taking full advantage of GPGPU. Right now, even if we try it tends to become unrealistic, ignoring the law of conservation of mass, but I would like to take it to a level where the warmth of the human skin is correctly shown. It is a thing that you want to pursue particularly with a fighting game, where flesh collides and blows connect. This is my personal obsession (laughs)."

Well, I've only played Battle Grounds, and it's pretty damn good. Very addictive.

Yeah, the music in that game is top notch, the mechanics super fun and the design was really cool, hopefully the Vita version comes over, along with the fighting game (not really interested in the fighter part, but the visual novel part :P).

Soft body physics.

WOW ANOTHER PHANTOM BREAKER FAN, one is rare, but TWO IN A DAY?!

Yeah, I agree. I just got it because it was on sale. I didn't expect much, but it's mega awesome.

Vita version is coming this month in Japan, right?

Yeah and it has a bunch of bonus content, what do you think of the characters?

What are your thoughts on it?

#13 Posted by misterpmedia (3362 posts) -

Shit's going to be also like this, confirmed:

They're pretty awesome. I've maxed out Mikoto, although I might get the character DLC. That also raises the level cap to 99. It's 50 now.

Playing with Nagi now, and getting her leveled. Very quirky game.

@SonicNextGen2:

I like it a lot, especially the music and the art style. I also like the enemy designs. Combat is fast and fun, but not too simple. 8 characters is nice too.

Im probably going to get the dlc.

Elaborate because I'm not seeing your angle here.

@I_can_haz: Says they are making a PS4 game. Doesn't say they aren't making it for XB1 or PC. Doesn't say that it's exclusive either.

I read that they were making an exclusive game for PS4. Don't remember the source, but it seemed legit.

They could also be getting ready to troll everyone with cock punching... every time it happens you get a slowed down time close up full screen 1080p...

No Fair I want Gen 8 Boobs too. :(

#48 Posted by Lulu_Lulu (8553 posts) -

But in All seriousness, Tecmo is an Indipendent Company. Its not in their best interest to make an Exclusive. And cows, You don't win or lose anything if it goes Muliplatform. On top of that its a niche genre, hardly a System Seller, so it doesn't help Sony either.

Now watch people ignore that Logic.
