I read an excerpt from an interview (with Minabi I believe) in the Metro a while back and I remember him saying a very similar thing about making Japanese games that appeal to a western audience. I personally prefer Japanese games over any other type (largely because that's all I played for most of my childhood and adolescence) so it's great that they endeavour to make those kinds of games that more and more people can enjoy.

I don't think that they should own darksiders but them working on it together.

There's no one for them to work with; THQ have sold off their IP and are declaring bankruptcy for what's no sold. Vigil and thus their Darksiders IP are the only ones not to have been bought by someone (the rights that is).
