According to comments from key personnel, it was thanks to Koei the strong desire from Koei Tecmo president and CEO Yoichi Erikawa that Jessica made it in. “I’m always getting my butt slapped by my wife, but I’d also like to try using a whip,” said Erikawa with a laugh.

 

As far as Yangus’ selection goes, “the Dragon Quest series has a lot of old guys. So, if we don’t have some in [Dragon Quest Heroes] now, if we were to make a second game for it, then it’d be full of old guys,” Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii jokingly explained.
