Final Fantasy XV and Kingdom Hearts III director Tetsuya Nomura was asked a few questions on the latest issue of the Japanese PlayStation-centric magazine Dengeki PlayStation, including what games excluding his own work managed to impress him.

The answer was fairly surpising (especially considering the Japanese tendency towards diplomacy): despite speaking to a PlayStation  magazine Nomura-san had no qualms in singling out an Xbox game: Titanfall

When asked the reason, Nomura-san responded explaining that the game uses giant robots that aren’t real, but manages to portray realistic battles.

He was also asked what he thinks about the future developments of the gaming market, and he mentioned that according to him the social gaming trend will last for another year, while afterwards the consumer market will steer towards next gen hardware. He also foretold a hybrid market where different devices interact between each other.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
