Yutaka “Yoot” Saito has worked on titles like Seaman, Odama, and Areo Porter in the past. In an interview with WIRED, Saito had some praise to share about Nintendo’s drive to get exciting titles:
They don’t care about money in order to get a very exciting title. They take every risk to make titles interesting. When working with a publisher, never hesitate to take risks. That’s the point. The risk takers are always… Sexy. I love them.
