Speaking in a weekly column for Nikkei, Square Enix president Yoichi Wada has admitted he is seriously obsessed with Dragon Quest IX.
How obsessed? He culmated 30 hours in the first four days after the game was released in Japan in July.
You’re proper hardcore now, Wada-san, innit.
But he doesn’t just play for the enjoyment. He also plays to see what makes a good game at Square Enix, what makes a hit over there and what to do next with a game in development.
