Mr. Iwata Did The Localization Programing For Dragon Warrior

DragonWarriorSince the unfortunate and unexpected announcement of Mr. Iwata’s passing, many people have shared their condolences in and out of the industry. Others who have worked closer with Mr. Iwata have looked back and reflected on past experiences. One such individual is Yuji Horii of Dragon Quest fame. Apparently, Mr. Iwata was also a key individual in the release of the first Dragon Warrior Quest game in the west.

So many amazing stories have come out about Mr. Iwata that many didn’t know. In my book, this goes right up there with the best of them. Sure the Dragon Quest series has never been as big outside of Japan as series’ like Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy, however, to think that Mr. Iwata also played a key role in the first Dragon Warrior Quest getting localized is pretty incredible.
