- Jun Takeuchi
"Yes, it's true we did feel extreme pressure - and Mikami-san's shadow - after Resi 4," - "However, because we were creating the sequel to this huge franchise we wanted to make our fresh direction clear." - "Personally, I don't think I'm gonna deal with Resident Evil 6 at all - as far as the series is concerned I'm not planning to return until at least two more Olympics have passed!"
Takeuchi-san also said that he feels less pressure when working on a relatively new IP like Lost Planet, but that doing so requires "physical strength" to get right.
[*Mikami-san left the Capcom in 2007, he's currently running his own fledgling Tokyo based development house called "Tango" ]
