Forums / News / Quote from Square Enix president Yoichi Wada

[The Last Remnant] is a Square Enix RPG for the world; [it will] become a cornerstone for our worldwide strategy... Square Enix RPGs are in a league of their own, and in a world of new technology, we need to expand our portfolio, and The Last Remnant is a brand new franchise being designed by a new generation of developers, scheduled for a simultaneous U.S./Japan release.
"We dumbed it down, so any dumb ass could play it. That's right America, we're talking about you." - Yoichi Wada
I wouldn't be so offended. This has been common practice for many a game by many a company for many a year.
And the movie industry, and the music industry, and any kind of media intended to be distributed to the general population.

Accessibility means money, even if we encourage idiocy.

Keep it down! I can't hear my Maroon 5 album, watch American Idol, or order my Netflix copy of Jumper without being distracted by your anti-American hate speech! Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go out and enjoy some fine, authentic Italian cuisine at the Olive Garden.
