Passwords could make a return in Dragon Quest XI

Remember when video games didn't have the ability to save your progress? You had to write down a password that would unlock your progress when you returned to a game later. We've since moved on from passwords thanks to carts that save games and storage space on platforms, but Dragon Quest series creator Yuji Horii would like to see passwords return. Believe it or not, Horii stated that he really wants passwords to be a part of Dragon Quest XI. He didn't specify how he wanted them use, but don't worry, these passwords would only be in conjunction with traditional save methods.

The Delusions of Von Sottendorff and his Square Mind part of IndieCade E3 showcase

Coming from Arturo Monedero -- Chief Creative Officer at Delirium Studios...

To be at IndieCade Showcase @ E3 is a dream came true. We had received several national awards in the past, which are always a moral boost for the team, but we never hoped to be invited to the world's most important video game fair as one of the selected indie games.

Monedero also stated that details on Delirium's next project are going to be revealed at the IndieCade event. We'll be sure to keep our ear to the ground just incase that news is Nintendo related!

The following comes from a NTower interview with Capcom's Ryôzô Tsujimoto and Shintarô Kojima...

- development for Monster Hunter Generations started at the same time as Monster Hunter 4 Ultimat
- team wanted to focus on the existing weapons and develop their systems even more

- they also can't use hunter items, but do have support skills for healing
- Generations' four main monsters are Glavenus, Astalos, Mizutsune and Gammoth
- Glavenus is on the 3DS packshot because he is the main of the four monsters
- new item for sword and shield players that you can put on the tip of your sword in order to acquire different effects
- no amiibo functions
- some of the DLC costumes will not come to the west, but there will be exclusive costumes for the west
- Fire Emblem and Ōkami costumes are actually exclusive to the west
- currently no plans to bring the series back to a Nintendo home console
