Yoko Taro: “I’ve thought about it, but because you need money, I think I’d first like to search for a person with money.”

Question: “What about a Drakengard sequel?”

Yoko Taro: “I believe there’s a Square Enix producer over there, and if the producer said he’d put up the money, I’d make it whenever.”

Question: “What if you were to make the next Nier game?”

Yoko Taro: “I think I’d want to make the Nier: Automata sequel that isn’t the one people are thinking I’d make. I think I’d jumble it all up.”

Question: “Yoko san, up to now you’ve been involved with games, a novel, and a stage play. But here on out, what kind of medium do you want to make?”

Yoko Taro: “I imagine this will be off putting, but I want to make an adult video. Once in my life, I’m thinking I’d like to make one.”
