Play Arts Kai is a weird conundrum; on one hand, they have some of the best licenses right now on the market (Batman Arkham Asylum, Uncharted, Resident Evil, Final Fantasy, ect.), but on the other hand, said figures are not what we would call “Quality”, especially with other companies like Bandai doing much better job with video game licenses. But how can Square-Enix get away from this stigma of “good idea, bad execution”? Let’s take a look at everything so far with Play Arts and find a way from there.
I figured we’d start with what they are doing right first, because once we find SOME good, we can better detect the bad.
