Curious to get a general resource of this going here. 

Was talking with some people about the Pokemon Sword and Shield issues, and among the things that came up are a few things that create feedback dissonance between the western fans and the developers in Japan. 

Among them are the social features that either come off as a lot less convenient out west than in Japan (like local wireless events) and what they like and we find annoying (paired versions). 

I also know there is a larger fondness for grinding in eastern developers mindsets than the western ones, though with loot box economies that might have changed a bit. 

So local wireless, paired versions, and grinding. What else stands out as a difference in developer mentalities?

The Democratic Nintendo that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
