Dragon Quest vs. Dragon Slayer – 1987 Developer Interview
 
http://shmuplations.com/kiyahorii/ Yuji Horii and Yoshio Kiya were two of the giants of the Japanese RPG world in the 80s. This short but sweet interview offers a candid, broad look at their development process before turning to speculation on the future of RPGs. “Network rpg” is the term they use, but clearly the modern MMORPG is what they had in mind… in 1987!
