For me at least this sounds like someone has finally gotten a clue in Japan. I buy JRPGs because of their eastern influence. Most people who fell in love with Resident Evil or Final Fantasy fell in love with the eastern flavor but now companies are so obsessed with pandering to the western crowd they lose what makes them special, makes them an alternative to Gearheads of War and the like.
Suteki da ne was a really beautiful song, an excellent theme for FFX, then X-2 came out and all the songs were translated into english (with mixed results)
Then by FF13 we get some third rate pop crap from Leona Lewis for the western release, the Japanese theme Kimi Ga Iru Kara was a superior song in every way but apparently we westerners are too stupid for Japanese songs. Because we couldn't possibly look up a translation for these things could we.
Squeenix, Capcom et al, you are Japanese, don't be ashamed of it, embrace it, you can offer us experiences that western developers cannot, and in many cases will not. Would a western developer have given us anything like Tales of Symphonia, The Last Story, Xenoblade Chronicles.
Heck Capcom, you tried to Westernise Sengoku Basara, tell me how exactly did that work out for you again?
