Recently, Masahiro Sakurai was once again interviewed by Famitsu in a column titled “The Hero Joins the Battle! Banjo and Kazooie also Join the Battle!”.
Check out what Sakurai commented on for The Hero in this translation from PushDustIn on Twitter:
-Sakurai has always wanted to include the command prompt from Dragon Quest for The Hero’s moveset.
-He decided that the command prompt should include spells and attacks that you can choose. There will also be an MP system.
-Originally only certain Dragon Quest characters could fight eachother in the series but Smash has been given permission to let more fight for the first time.
-Sakurai felt nervous when taking on such a legendary series and decided that the final smash should have past characters to show off the series.
-Adding voice acting was decided later in development as in the main Dragon Quest XI game The Hero remains silent similar to previous entries. But Dragon Quest XI S gave The Hero a voice actor so plans changed.
