Kotaku: 40 hours, Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii told Kotaku today. Why 40? Why not 30 or 50?
"It just sounds like the right number," Horii said through a translator in an interview with Kotaku at Nintendo's New York office today. "No particular reason."
Horii is the creator of the Dragon Quest role-playing game series, one of Japan's most massive video game success of the past 25 years. His games, including Dragon Quest IX, which launches in America this weekend, is another that will take many hours to complete.
