The Iwata Asks session also includes a rather creepy discussion about lips!
Shibata: Kikuchi gave a lot of detailed instructions about their faces in particular.
Kikuchi: Yes, that’s right. I was especially concerned with getting their lips right.
Shibata: Yes, he really was! For a decade now, Kikuchi has been very particular about the shape of the heroine’s lips. It got to the point where the team would say, “Not the lips again!” (laughs)
Kikuchi: Well, I think that while the eyes obviously play a major role in feminine beauty, the mouth is also extremely important.
Iwata: Um, I’m not sure if we’re still discussing the game here… (laughs)
