What happens when Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy, and Tales producers Yosuke Saito, Shinji Hashimoto, and Hideo Baba share space in Japanese monthly V Jump? JRPG nerds fangasm off into the sunset.
A snippet of possible collaboration talks comes courtesy of Siliconera. This is almost assuredly "what ifs" and "if only" spit balling. Don't expect some sort of Miami Heat-esque JRPG Voltron. But you can think about it, and hopefully that gets you through the day.
Baba (Tales): "If you can do it, then by all means!" Saito (Dragon Quest): "Shall we? We can start right away." Baba: "How about [Akira] Toriyama’s first Tales of game?" Hashimoto (Final Fantasy): "If Toriyama is okay with it, then we’re okay with it. As long as we stay true to the world view, I think [Yuji] Horii would be okay with it, too."
Hashimoto: “How about Kosuke Fujishima (Tales of character designer) draws for a Final Fantasy, and Tetsuya Nomura do Dragon Quest?” Baba: “I’m pretty sure Fujishima would do it.”
