Our brothers and sisters from the Far East coast, more specifically BANDAI, decided to create a Dragonball Z MMORPG for the PC. The problem? It’s made by Koreans, not the Japanesse.
The reaction? See this pic for yourself.
The outcry from the Japanesse gamers can be summed up like this: The Japanese game industry will be finished if Japan continues to give up valuable franchises to other countries without reserve.
BANDAI admits they didn’t have the experience in creating online RPGs, while the Korean does considering the fact that they release new MMORPGs on a daily basis. Strangely enough, this outcry was a sudden impact, as there was no prior complaints during the game development.
Just my two cents here, but does anyone else find it completely ironic that Japanesse gamers are pissed that a property of Japan, the Dragonball franchise, was being developed by Koreans. Yet at the very same time, the very origins of Dragonball was based on a Chinese Folklore, Journey to the West?
