Tori Matsuzaka and Mirei Kiritani Talk About Their Experience In Dragon Quest Heroes
Posted by Hanamaru Kunikida in Video Games November 03, 2014 at 12:31:05 AM

The latest Weekly Shonen Jump magazine reveals some details about Tori Matsuzaka and Mirei Kiritani, two of the voice actors of the game. Within the interview, you will learn more about the voice actors as well as their experience working in this new Dragon Quest title. Matsuzaka is the voice actor of Akuto, the Male Protagonist while Kiritani is the voice actor of Meer, the Female Protagonist.

(Tori) Matsuzaka: When I first got the job, I had never played a character in Dragon Quest, so it
was like, "Oh, I am playing a hero!?" It was a shock...!? That question mark feeling came about a
lot, but after finally realizing that I would be playing the character... I downright went into a
happy mood that can not be repeated.

(Mirei) Kiritani: I was so surprised... and there is that anxiety that you put upon yourself, but
there was also a joy that played into it which I enjoyed. Since the Dragon Quest series is
tremendously popular, there was also the pressure of whether the fans would accept me. Now
that I am working on this, I have thoughts like, "I'll defeat the full monster"!

Matsuzaka: This time, there are a lot of characters coming from Dragon Quest Chronicles... also,
I love Terry, coming from "Dragon Quest VI". So this time, with it being entwined with Terry, I
just couldn't wait. It was a double whammy because my favorite voice actor plays Terry. I was
excited! I was and am extremely happy!!

Kiritani: Also, there is a scene where Meer, played by myself, talks with Bianca, my favorite
character, and the only thing I could say was "Wow!" due to my excitement (Laughs).

Matsuzaka: There are an interesting tangle of characters in this yet it still has the exact feel of
Dragon Quest, so it's very interesting.

Kiritani: While I was recording, I had found a will inside of me that had become stronger and
stronger. Of course I still have not played [the game], but from recording you get the sense that
you are already playing! I am actually in the game, and I am looking forward to it.

Matsuzaka: This work is, in no other way to put it, revolutionary, so for you Jump Readers, I

Hope you are looking forward to the release!
