Yamauchi discussed a wide range of topics in a lengthy interview with KPMG, the accounting firm KPMG. But there is a connection, because the person Yamauchi talked with was KPMG’s current chief digital officer Massayuki Chatani, who worked for Sony Interactive Entertainment (then Sony Computer Entertainment) for 14 years and experienced PS3 work.
A specific part of the chat touched on Yamauchi’s dream for the future and what the legendary designer envisioned for his own work in the next few years. According to GT Planet reports, Yamauchi revealed that he wants to make more “Gran Turismo” games after next year’s “Gran Turismo 7”.
Yamauchi said: “Well, I intend to continue to develop Gran Turismo, it will keep pace with the car culture and the car industry.” “At the same time, I also want to do something different.”
Yamauchi went on to say that video games have always aspired to be the “digital twin” of the real world, but you don’t necessarily need real things to have a sense of reality.
He explained: “Whether through the Grand Prix or not, I want to face a challenge and create a world where people feel more reality than reality.”
Yamauchi gave an example of how the digital environment reproduces his childhood so that he can reproduce moments and experiences that are no longer possible in the real world.
“In the 1970s, the foothills and flat land stretched out like My Neighbor Totoro World in my hometown of Kashiwa. When I grew up like collecting insects and climbing mountains, I used to spend a whole day in the forest or Playing in the river.
“However, it may not be possible in Japan now. In that case, when we enter the natural world, why not create a certain digital nature and convey the complexity and harshness of the world, and the feeling that things cannot be realized as expected . This is my fantasy.”
Gran Turismo 7 was recently postponed to 2022. It has no release date yet.
