Over at 1UP, Jeremy Parish puts up a fine article explaining the impact Studio Ghibli has left on the Japanese gaming industry. He focuses on two of Hayao Miyazaki’s films, Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and Laputa: Castle in the Sky, and supplies plenty of solid examples of gaming cribbing from those classic films. For example, Final Fantasy’s Chobobos are pretty damn similar to Nausicaa’s Hookclaws (seen at left). A great read!
