Mist Walker on the X Box next/360 whatever.

That will sell consoles in the US, at least.

So the entire game is centered around making the spikey haired guy squat and grunt out a dragon?

haha.
ALL OF TORIYAMA'S STUFF LOOKS SO DIFFERENT.

I still don't get it. I mean...his men and women look the same! It looks like a 14 year old's fanart! BLEH.

I really like SOME of Toriyama's character designs. His DQ3 and 4 stuff had a lot of charm, and I liked about half the designs in DQ7 as well....but lately, it seems like his stuff is really half-assed most of the time. The main character for this really looks like trash. It's unprofessional.

He is probably doing it in purpose so they finally leave him alone.

I feel like Togashi has been doing the same thing for quite some time. "Come on. I DARE you to publish this chapter of Hunter."

After seeing the terrific design in DQ8...this artwork is a little underwhelming.

Well, what I like in this news is how the terrific power of the next X Box is shown at its full potential in the 0 pics (also, what's the need to hype a game that will be released in at least one year on a console without even a name to kids through Jump, really).

Also, Sakaguchi is making his company to create new forms of entertainment, and new forms of entertainment involve hiring Toriyama, like DQ and Chrono Trigger.

Sakaguchi is like a guy who wants to make something for kids, then asks himself "what do kids want?" and his answer is what he liked when he was himself a kid 30 years ago.
Because, frankly, I'm not sure the children who read Jump now know who is Toriyama beside "that guy who makes DQ illustrations".

Wow. Toriyama must just use a stencil at this point. Pitiful.

A shame, really... I was kinda curious to see what Sakaguchi would do.

I wouldn't say that. There's always coverage on Dragonball things that shouldn't be covered and video games in Jump. I don't know that kids -REALLY- care about Toriyama anymore, but that's not what advertisement is telling me. I thought with the release of so many new DBZ games, there was a revival of interest.

Also (on a different note), there was nothing special about Toriyama's DQ8 designs. Well, not with the human characters at least (no, boobs do not count). But...they still had more heart than this.

This whole situation is upsetting to me, because it really feels obvious that Microsoft is just buying whatever names they can "Guess who we've got...guess what he's doing...and guess who's doing the character designs!!!". I don't like accusing Microsoft of this and that and I've never done it before, but this just seems too obvious, forced and lifeless. Maybe I should blame Sakaguchi instead...or maybe I'll play the game, and be sorry I said anything bad at all.

I kind of like the DQ8 designs, and I can't wait to play the game, but I agree that these designs are too lame, even for a Tori fan like me.

I'd like him to surprise me again like when he published Cowa!, it had a really delicious and refreshing style.

Yeah, because the recent Dragon Ball Perfect Editions didn´t outsell every other manga released in the same period or anything...

I think it's funny how authentic most DBZ fanart looks.

Do you know the price of these ? Do you think children that are under 10 years old can afford this ? Do you think children under 10 buy artbooks ? Do you think children under 10 have found memories of DBGT ? Do you have any idea of what you're talking about ? And, most importantly, where is that stupid Assassin guild that is supposed to be west of Tarmita ?

Questions, questions.

It's true, "acerbic rating" is at 100%, fear! And yeah, those new Toriyama designs are terrible, maybe they're just random scraps he drew for Jump. I don't love his style that much, but his Chrono Trigger designs were very distinctive despite the cartoony style, and DQVIII looks not bad to me, but....
