For most of us, we can wait a little longer until Dragon Quest IX is released, but not 73-year-old Japanese actress Keiko Awaji.
For her, it's a matter of life or death.
Japanese film actress Keiko Awaji wants to play new Dragon Quest and pronto. Awaji, who has appeared in over 160 movies since 1949 including Akira Kurosawa's police noir Stray Dog, said this about DQ.
"I won't live forever. I'd like to play two more more games... I really want them to put out a new game once every two years."
Don't we all Awaji-san, don't we all.
Awaji is a big fan of role-playing games, including Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and Mother (known in the West as Earthbound).
