Congratulations on the announcement of Dragon Quest IX!
So the next Dragon Quest is coming to the DS! That was a surprise to me. Surprised you too, right?
But this is really good news to me. I had gradually been losing my enthusiasm, but this makes me feel as if we'll be able to make a bit of a return to the good old days. "Wow!" I thought, "Horii's the man! He's really done it!"
This may just be the nostalgic ramblings of an old man, but back then I really enjoyed making concept art for games. I feel I can proudly say "now those were games!" This time I want to absolutely give it my all to produce fun, simple and impactful new designs.
I'm getting on in my years, but for just a little bit longer, I'm going to give it my best!
Expect big things!
