Square-Enix Boss Wants More Heavy Rain


Square-Enix CEO and noted Westernophile Yoichi Wada is a fan of Quantic Dream’s quick-time-event thriller, and wants to see more games like it.

Have you been feeling like Square-Enix is on a bit of a pro-Western-games kick lately? Good, you aren’t the only one.

In an interview with Japanese gaming uber-mag Famitsu, Squeenix boss Yoichi Wada said that he’d been playing Quantic Dream’s thriller Heavy Rain as of late, and that he’d become a fan: “It would be good if they made more games like Heavy Rain.”

Hey, Wada-san, last I checked you were the President and CEO of one of the largest game studios in the world. It’s not like you guys haven’t specialized in making essentially interactive cutscenes before, either. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that if you want to see more games like Heavy Rain, you can probably make that happen.

They’d probably have better voice acting, too.
