An old CT interview? / V-Jump player's guide
« on: April 03, 2010, 04:28:18 pm »
A few days ago, I was looking at some Japanese pages through Google Translate when I came across this post:
Quote
    こんなもん見つけた。全文読みてえなあ

    インタビュアー:サラとジャキというのは、バーチャファイターからきたんですか?
    全員:ハハハハハ。
    加藤:よく言われるんですけどね、全然意識してなかったです(笑)。
       たまたまなんですよ、ほんとに。
    北瀬:サラってけっこうあちこちで出てきてるんですよ。
       よくある名前だからめずらしくないですよ。
    インタビュアー:コンフュージョンっていうのも気になったんですよ。
    全員:ハハハハハ(笑)。
    加藤:あれもけっこう揉めたんですけどね。
    時田:一時期はグレートコンバインっていってたんだよね(笑)。
    加藤:あれもだから意識せずに書いたんですよ。
       僕、マンガをあまり読まない人間なんで。
       DBとか全然関係なくて、ここはもうコンフュージョンしかねえよな、とか勝手に書いてたら、
       あれはあまりじゃねえかとか言われて(笑)。
       なにがあまりなのって言ったら、実はあれ鳥山マンガでやってるよって言われて。
       ああ、それはまずいかもしれん、と思って一時期グレートコンバインになって(笑)。
    全員:ワハハハ(笑)!!
    時田:そんな名前じゃ、よっぽどわけがわからない。
    加藤:そうしたら、そうしたで今度はモニターで賛否両論で、元に戻せだの、
       コンフュージョンに戻したら戻したで、あれはパクリだのと(笑)。
       いや、俺はもうコンフュージョンは真似して作ったんじゃないから、これで行くみたいなノリで、
       最後はあのまま落ち着いたんですよ(笑)。
    インタビュアー:ポーズも似てたんで、これはまちがいないなと。
    加藤:あのポーズ自体はもう、モンスター班の攻撃のポーズとしてあったやつを、
       これは使えるから変身ポーズに使っちゃえって勝手に流用しただけなんで(笑)。
    インタビュアー:あのポーズはフュージョンを狙ったんですか。
    加藤:本当に偶然が重なって、ああなったんです(笑)。

    以上、Vジャンプ増刊号クロノ・トリガー攻略大特集
    「チーム クロノ・トリガー スペシャルトーク ~クロノ・トリガーの真実~」より179~180ページを引用
From what I can tell, it doesn't seem to be anything special (it apparently starts with asking if the names "Sarah" and "Jaki" come from Virtua Fighter!), at least not in the quoted section.

Also, moving to a tangent, I don't believe we have any information about the guide it's said to be from.

I got this picture from an auction site:
(Image long since lost)


Edit:
When I was looking at the pictures (not in the image I posted), I thought something seemed familiar about the arrangement used, and I was right.
This is a currently ongoing Ebay auction.

Were any of the CT team involved in Tobal No. 1 besides Toriyama? If they really did pluck names from Virtua Fighter, I wonder if their appreciation for that game led to Squaresoft's own ventures into the fighting game arena (namely Tobal and Ehrgeiz, I guess).

From what I can tell from machine translation, the "Virtua Fighter" thing is just speculation by the interviewer.

I'm more sure now that what I've quoted is only part of the interview. I'm currently trying to figure out what other things are said to be from the guide.

For a minor example, this very short snippet which is supposedly about "Cyrus Punch" (The poster apparently wanted to make a point with this):
http://www.unkar.org/read/schiphol.2ch.net/gamerpg/1227787527/#l521

    時田:あれは結局なくしたの?
    加藤:さすがにはずしました。

Or for example, this probably paraphrased description, apparently about that famous snow artwork:
Quote
また、重要な発言として、鳥山氏のイラストを再現するにあたって、クロノ、マール、カエルin雪山のイラストについて、
「これはゲームには雪山が無いらしくて、難しい」という坂口の発言があった。
ここで雑誌にも注釈で「このインタビュー時、死の山は存在していなかった」ともある。
この時すでに堀井はプロットを手放し、監修も終えている段階であるため、
これがトリガーのシナリオ中枢を担う古代編(死の山イベント含む)に一切関わっていなかったことの裏づけになる。

Not that it would have had much influence as far as pulling names goes, Yasunori Mitsuda was music producer and one of the many composers for the Tobal No.1 soundtrack. Noriko Matsueda also did a track for the score.

They're all there. These are brilliant, and an incredible contribution to the history of the series. I'll mark you down as the next Guru of Time.

Thank you so much!!!  :o    :D
 Iím currently scanning the rest of the magazine; hopefully it should be ready by the end of the next week. By the way, is the image resolution Iím currently using working fine? Or would you recommend a higher (or lower) one?
