RPGFan Exclusive Interview Series: 2006 Edition
Conducted and Translated by Chris Winkler

The positive reception and feedback we received for last year's series of exclusive interviews motivated us to bring you another special feature in 2006. Hence, RPGFan is proud to present the 2006 version of our Exclusive Interview Series. We will kick off this year's feature with an interview with GameArts president Youichi Miyaji, followed by Final Fantasy series composer Nobuo Uematsu, Takashi Fukushima, president of WildARMS developer Media Vision, Arte Piazza president Shinjirou Majima, Hudson president Hidetoshi Endou, and Cavia producer Takuya Iwazaki.

Last year we had the opportunity to hear what the minds behind Shadow Hearts, Rogue Galaxy, Disgaea: Hour of Darkness and Shining Force Neo/Sakura Taisen had to say about their present and future projects. This year Nobuo Uematsu and Takuya Iwazaki will talk about their work on next-generation RPGs, while the president of Arte Piazza will shed some light on Innocent Life Shin Bokujou Monogatari (Harvest Moon). GameArts, Hudson and Media Vision will offer us a glimpse of what is in store for their heralded RPG series Grandia, Tengai Makyou and WildARMS. All of the interviews were conducted by Chief News Editor Chris Winkler in Japanese and then translated into English. RPGFan would like to thank all participants as well as their public relations managers for sacrificing their precious time and participating in this exclusive interview feature. This feature will contain the comprehensive translations of the following interviews.
