Umehara Gunslinger Stratos interview from Famitsu

Square Enix announced Gunslinger Stratos on January 11 and they made Daigo Umehara "official supporter" of the game. It seems like Famitsu had an interview with him that day but was published just today.

- The offer: He was happy with the offer. He likes Square Enix's games and they're his favorite game developer.
- His impression: The cabinets are big and flashy, that will attract people. And character designs and settings are a charm factor. Players don't need to be a game lover.
- Fun factor: The feeling "there's always something to do" it keeps you busy.
- He felt that gun action scares some people away but this game's cute character designs and world and such will make it easier to approach.
- Opinion on Gunglinger Stratos National Tournament (that has prize money): He'd be happy if prize money becomes a norm. But for him, he already likes new thing or new challenge, so it's interesting. If more game companies do this (prize money), pro gamers will increase. But it's also important to make a good game.
- Will he play Gunslinger Stratos?: He thinks so. His interest depends on number of people. And he thinks the game will certainly attract people. You don't want to miss that.
- His experience on large scale co-op game: Back in the past, he actually hated co-op games. (laugh)
