Developer Interview 2014

04. Kazunori Sugiura, General Manager of Consumer Games Development Division 2 Department 2 / Creating High-quality Online Games in Close Collaboration with Our Studios in Asia

Leveraging our studios' respective strengths to put out games for all platforms

-   Would you mind telling us about the current setup at Consumer Games Development Division 2 Department 2?
Department 2 is engaged in developing online games and native apps in close collaboration with our studios in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. We have established an organizational management structure to assign the task of developing and operating titles for online games and native apps to several team units. Leveraging each studio's strength, we are allocating each title to the appropriate studio.
-   About how many people do you have working at each studio?
Our studios in Taiwan and Korea have grown to more than 100 people. We have about 400 staff members at the studio in Japan. More specifically, a large project team involved in developing major online game titles, such as "deep down", can consist of well over 100 staff members, while a native apps project team could be composed of anywhere from 10 to dozens of members. The staff number for each project team differs depending on the types of games and on the planning necessary for them.
-   I'd now like to ask you more about each studio's strength.
We at the Japanese studio, of course, handle the concepts that form the foundation of game titles and operate game management in Japan. In Korea, where PC online games have been the most popular, there are many opportunities to regularly experience such games. When it comes to network servers and related matters, therefore, the studio in Korea has an advantage over other studios. Our studio in Taiwan also has many sophisticated programmers specializing in clients and servers.
