Ways for Destiny to appeal to the Japanese/Asian market

With the short week-long alpha launch of Destiny last week during E3, much of the elements within the gameplay look very promising. Of course, Bungie also announced that a PC version isn’t completely off the radar, so that would naturally be my choice of platform for any kind of First Person Shooter game.

A couple of months ago, Bungie announced that they’ll be spending US$500,000,000 (that’s five hundred million for those who can’t count the zeroes) for Destiny’s projected 10-year life cycle, which include everything from development to marketing and the like. That is a lot of money, probably more than World of Warcraft has ever invested in thus far, and definitely more than GTA V.

Since this is mainly a Japanese sub-culture blog, I’ll talk about the elements that may work with the Japanese and Asian market when it comes to content.
