If you don't know Yuji Horii, then you
probably live outside of Japan. As the producer for the Dragon Quest
series, his games have caused a cultural phenomenon
in the Land of
the Rising Sun - and now he's caught the Nintendo bug. Speaking yesterday in London, Horii mentioned his excitement for
the Revolution's controller and its interactivity: "it's a new interface and it's exciting to have that
reaction." This is not a confirmation that he is developing anything for Nintendo's love child, but he's certainly
toying with the idea.
Other news of interest include a snippet from a pre-interview release, which noted
that it's yet to be determined if Dragon Quest VIII
will be released on other consoles. It's interesting to
see Square Enix, yet again
being ambiguous about its multiplatform initiatives.
