Square’s Star Ocean producer Yoshinori Yamagishi was keen on making erotic games at one time.
Yamagishi explained to Videogamer:
“This is actually a quotation from a conversation I had when I was still talking with Enix before the company merged with top management people,” he said. “I said yes, maybe one day I would like to try something more adult content. That’s true!
“But that’s not to say that we wanted to create something erotic and ended up with Star Ocean: the Last Hope. That’s not the case.”
Yamagishi mentioned that the Star Ocean engine makes it possible to do a DS, PSP, or a PS3 version–but that’s just not as interesting.
