Supposing about Tetsuya Nomura; Search for Online Reputation

Yesterday I saw an open tweet which exasperated me. Outlet Nintendo Life published their review of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy VII Reunion, the statement, who shared it, contained blatant misinformation.

This tweet was deleted but the following is a photo showcasing it: “The one which is right now”

I wish I hardly any wish to change that sentence to anyone who wrote it. As for those unaware of what makes this post uninformative, it is clear that Tetsuya Nomura did not write the Final Fantasy: Crisis Core. The actual writers are Kazushige Nojima and Sachie Hirano.

For something very basic as the game staff, you wouldn’t think it would take many a lot of effort to identify it. And it doesn’t matter that much. Just looking up the title and doing about a half minute of research will show you who the writers are. Even though it wasn’t apparent, what caused the tweet to be sent in a so far identical tone?

I think that I’ve got a hunch. Tetsuya Nomura is pretty much a divisive figure on the internet, one says. If you don’t follow either the Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts fanbases, it wouldn’t be easy to know that there are incredibly vocal groups who vehemently oppose his involvement in any project, especially if it doesn’t include artistic work. Although his illustrations attract lots of angry reactions, such as praise for others.

Because of this discontent, Nomura has accepted the notion that a person cannot give a word to parties of Final Fantasy and all of Kingdom Hearts — even if he has no proof. It was likely that the tweet was adapted from that collective kind of assumption because it describes ‘Prosperity in Philosophy’ as nomuras Goofiest and is not, as we have already established, a science fiction, but it’s often not because of truth. Thus, the natural conclusion that a reader can examine this review tweets with this added context is that whoever illustrated the phrasing equates goofiness to Nomura, likely because of his online reputation.

I was upset to not be a huge fan of the Final Fantasy VII series, as a result of the numerous disingenuous conversations that took place at that time, a tweet showcasing what second nature the assumptions are. Several instances of critique towards Final Fantasy VII Remake tend to consist of culturally accepted, hand-waving mockery toward Nomura, regardless of facts.

During the period between Final Fantasy VII and its first weeks of development, many people think that the decision being nominated as a 1:1 remake was mostly wrong. When, in fact, he was someone on staff who tried to avoid monumental deviations from the original game (thanks to The Landi Lodge for sharing this source):

Interviewer: Generally speaking, they are not good at remakes, but there are those who don’t want changes from the original, and there are another bunch that do that. Since the creators were concerned about changing what to do and what else to do?

Nomura: Because the plan for the 7th FF was originally adopted from the very start, there weren’t any disputes. Nonetheless, from person to person there were different approaches of thinking; despite this, there were many instances in which I got into a disloyalty of self-defence.

To the moment, there are some who blame Nomura for his sudden changes; he influenced his peers for the worst. I kid him off, that is a real sentiment that I noticed almost humorously a few times.

I’m convinced that that a large part of this abhorrence for Nomura stems from Kingdom Hearts, which many detractors claim is irresponsible. What is the resemblance of an old-hat that usually happens to be presented on sheep-like basis is that it isn’t worth a question here.

What should be discussed is, however, a very widely believed falsity about Kingdom Hearts is based on the assumptions people make about Nomura. After years, people said that he’s a very drunk drunk. If you think that sounds too bizarre to be accurate, then you’d be correct.

This new revelation was based on a mistranslated section of a Famitsu interview in October 2007. If you’re curious about this whole story, you should buy this video by the popular creator of Kingdom Hearts, Regular Pat, which details and debunks all types of false-smoking opinions about this series. This was very likely to be widely accepted because of the vast amount of wacky and sinless Kingdom Hearts, and Nomura by extension, of fans and gaming fans alike.

I also don’t entirely agree with you. We were also detesting to believing drunk fabrication, and it was honestly due to how Kingdom Hearts is perceived. This was the development that appeared in line with the number of people talking about the series and Nomura, so I decided not to consider it a silliness, no matter what the importance was.

You should not like Nomuras work. Whenever you notice, that is when you complain. As I said earlier, I do not like everything Nomuras has ever been involved. Unlike that old favorite series, Kingdom Hearts, there are characters I haven’t known. Nevertheless, simply affixing Nomura, if there are a total of a team working on these projects, makes both the efforts of everyone else and his peers invalidates the actions of Nomura.

This article may be a mess, but seeing such blatant misinformation spread about easily accessible information simply because a creator is involved frustrates me immensely.

When closing the piece, I’d like to highlight the tweets that I saw in the post, created by the KZ and the Washington Post Games Reporter Gene Park. They bring up a disturbing trend, which is worth taking into account how Japanese game writing is perceived as a very disturbing approach.

Another episode of Games Media yelled about “Wacky Japanese.”

That time it’s the people erasing their original writers of a game, rather than being blamed on the “reads notes” character designer. [Do you want to] keep the “book” busy.

As a longtime member and former voted official of the Asian American Journalists Association, there are always hints of anti-Asian sentiment throughout western media, often in the most remote way, but rarely by peers.
