Gran Turismo storied director Kazunori Yamauchi has some ideas about what he wants to do with the series and more.
Kazunori Yamauchi the longtime director and co -creator of Gran Turismo has often been the face of developer Polyphony Digital and its team’s attention to detail. As Polyphony continued to work on Gran Turismo 7 Yamauchi looked to the future.
Yamauchi discussed a wide range of topics in a lengthy interview with KPMG, an accountant firm of all things. But there is a connection, however, because the person Yamauchi spoke to was Masayuki Chatani, current chief digital officer at KPMG, who had the same job at Sony Interactive Entertainment (then Sony Computer Entertainment) for 14 years and in those days. of the PS3.  A particular chat section linked Yamauchi's dreams for the future, and what the legendary designer assumes he will be working on in the coming years. As reported by GT Planet, Yamauchi announced that he would like to create more Gran Turismo games to post in next year’s Gran Turismo 7.
“So, I plan to continue Gran Turismo going forward, which will be in both the boat of car culture and the automobile industry, ”Yamauchi said. "At the same time, I want to do something else as well."
Yamauchi went on to add that video games have long aspired to be a "digital twin" in the real world, but you don't need something to truly have a sense of reality.
“I wanted to take on the challenge of creating a world where people feel more reality than the real thing, through Grand Tourism or not,” he explains.
Yamauchi provided an example of how digital environments can recreate moments and experiences that are no longer possible in the real world, by revealing a little more about his childhood.
"In the 1970s, mountain foothills and flat terrain, like the world of Totoro, expanded into my hometown of Kashiwa City. Just as I loved collecting insects and climbing mountains since I was a child , I spent the whole day in the woods or playing in the river, "he recalls.
"However, this is probably not possible in Japan today. In that case, why not create some kind of digital nature and convey the complexity and seriousness of the world when we go out into nature and the feeling that things doesn't work as one would expect. This is what I fantasize about. "
Gran Turismo 7 was recently delayed until 2022. It doesn't have a release date yet.
The post that the director of Gran Turismo wanted to create something more real than the reality that first appeared in VG247.
