Yuji Horii comments on the controller's interactive potential.
At a London press event for the European release of Dragon Quest VIII on PS2, the creator of the RPG series mentioned his feelings about the Revolution controller. From Eurogamer:
I like the idea of interactivity with the hardware, so there, where you mention the Nintendo controller, it's a new interface, and it's exciting to have that reaction. You do something, and it reacts to you. It's human nature that to have some feedback from your actions it rewarding."
The Dragon Quest series is massively popular in Japan, but has not appeared on a Nintendo console since the Super Famicom days. It still makes occasional appearances on Nintendo's handhelds, including the recent release of Slime no Mori Mori 2 for the DS.
