Vanquish’s visuals where inspired by Casshern

I think everyone knows t that Mikami’s Vanquish title is aimed more at the Western audiences. But did you know their visuals where originally inspired by Casshern, a Japanese anime?

“I do think the visuals lean more towards a Western style, but the original inspiration was from Casshern, a Japanese animated show, and a lot of the game’s taste comes from that,”

I would have liked if they stuck more Japanese style, instead of thinking about what Westerners want. Also, Casshern is pretty awesome.
