Yasuhiro Wada, the man behind the Harvest Moon games and current President of Marvelous Interactive, cleared time out of his day to make a cameo in Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness. The tribal tower guard known as Wada is based on the creator of the Harvest Moon series. Wada-san, to the best of my knowledge, doesn’t dress in a tunic in real life. He wore a suit when I met him and looked like this with longer hair. Whoever designed the Wada character in Harvest Moon: Island of Happiness used their imagination and Wada-san must have a sense of humor since it’s rather unusual to see a Japanese corporate executive show up in a video game as a caveman.
