Dragon among studio people, the new system status

From the producer to the commander in chief of the entire studio; now the director of “Renewal Pole” is actually Mr. Sakamoto, and the original producer, Mr. Yokoyama, will manage the development process.

The reason for publishing 3 times at the same time? because handsome

Yokoyama Masayoshi said, “Because I want everyone to feel that it’s amazing, I released all three times together.” A pole was developed a long time ago and is now almost complete.

When the new studio system was announced last year, everything was still being developed. If I just said there was no problem at the time, I was afraid it would make players worry. be published. Considering development considerations, it will be released together with the demo version. , One of the best ways to convince players.


Why “Renewal in People!” “See Reference” is not “Extreme”

Yokoyama Changyi responded, in “Dragon in the Restoration of the People! Before the release of “Extreme”, no one really cared about this issue, but after the release of “Pole Renewal”, everyone suddenly began to care, and even the development team was shocked by this issue.

The main reason is that the “Dragon in Man” series has been truly localized to the world since 0. Everyone has widely loved up to 6 and 7, and it has received the most voices who hope restore and redo.


“Renew the Dragon among Humans!change

Compared to “Dragon Among People” and “Dragon Among People 2 Pole”, there are more stories about Jinshan and Zhendao, this time “Refresh! Extreme” is to strengthen mini-games, side stories, additional actors, and some characters .

“reform! “The growth elements and the martial arts at the time were well received by players; therefore, in “Renew! Pole” strengthens and completes the fusion.

“reform! Extreme” found some new casts, not really “adding content”, but replacing some actors with new ones. In addition, the sexy actress of the trailer will be in a new video of the new song in karaoke.

“edited! Why isn’t there a Switch version?

Because the Switch’s performance can’t meet expectations, game quality is more important right now.

Kasuga Ichiban is not “Dragon Among Men Restoration!” The reason for the extreme

In fact, Kasuga Ichiban appeared in the clash card; however, Yokoyama Changyi revealed the confused thoughts of the development team.

The main reason is that Izo Okada and Kasuga Ichiban are the same actor, and if Kasuga Ichiban is added, it will make people feel similar. To make Okada seem more important, he is not included.

When asked if there is a chance for Kasuga Ichiban to appear in a period drama, Yokoyama Masagi bluntly said that he didn’t have time to think about it before the release of “Dragon Among Men 8”!

In the “Dragon Among Men 0 The Place of the Oath”, the Chinese version was targeted, and Hong Kong star Li Cansen was also invited to play “Old Ghost” Is there a similar strategy in the future? Yokoyama Masayoshi believes that the current trend is to release it at the same time, and it is difficult to make a difference for a specific version. However, considering the characters of the game, as long as it is necessary to speak other languages, there will still be actors outside of Japan. be considered.


Is there a mystery? The meaning of adding English to the “Dragon Among People 8” logo

The main consideration is “a logo that can be easily understood regardless of region”. Yokoyama Changyi added that he has always wanted to unify the brand’s awareness and convey it to everyone, and “Dragon Among People 8” hopes to do the same.

The “8” in “Dragon Among Men 8” was an infinity symbol at the beginning?

Because he was interested in the “∞” that appeared in the first promotional film of “Dragon Among People 8”, but Yokoyama Masahiro answered directly: Because it will contain some things that the development team has not determined yet. Can’t explain much.

The main reason why “Dragon Among Men 7: A Biography” does not appear in “Dragon Among Men 8”

Kiryu’s appearance in “Dragon Among Men 8” was due to the plot. “Dragon Among Men 7 Gaiden” is independent because the background is too long, and it feels a little difficult to join in one breath. The independent “Dragon Among Men 7 Gaiden” is the development team think that this’ the easiest and most complete way to complete the content.

Will Dragon Among Us 8 be an action RPG or a traditional RPG?

Due to the “action RPG vs. traditional RPG” war caused by “Dragon in the Man 7”, Yokoyama Masahiro believes that the development team will not change their minds due to player choices, because the development considerations areGamers want to play games like thisis the development team’s decisionSelect the game the player wants to play.
