“One of the reasons we’re so confident about redesigning everything is that we have a lot of veterans on the team — many of our developers have been on the series for ten years or more, and some even for twenty years,” Harada explained.
“So everyone has a deep understanding of Tekken, what makes the game great and what fans love the most, but they also know how to avoid common mistakes. Either way, no matter how experienced you are. Find the right way to replace some items with new ones.”
“If you don’t change enough, people will think that this isn’t really a new game, but an update of Tekken 7. If you change too much, you risk undoing those aspects that users have always loved in the series.”
“So, no matter how experienced you are, it is always very difficult to face such a path and no one has a ready answer.”
