The NYU Game Center Lecture Series is pleased to welcome Yoichi Wada, President of Shinra Technologies, Inc.
Wada-san, former President of Square Enix and Executive Producer on many of the titles in the popular Final Fantasy series, is a key figure in the Japanese game industry. Shinra, his new venture, aims to enable new types of games through cloud technology.
“Game design is defined by the platform. That is to say that user interface, computing power, and how the user perceives value, form the three factors by which game design must be planned.” Wada-san will discuss his vision of how cloud computing will affect game design.
After the talk, Game Center Director Frank Lantz will speak with Wada-san about his influential career, his perspective transitioning from a Japanese to an American industry, and his vision for the future of games. After the interview the audience will be welcomed to join the conversation.
