...roughly, "By the way, a little while ago I found the planning documents for "Densetsu --" [Ogre Battle] and read through them again; there were four protagonists originally. The berserker Ash, Prince Tristan, Aisha the monk, and the mage Saladin. The graphics for the male warrior in Ogre Battle in fact came from Ashe in that [document]."
I've never played the original Ogre Battle; does that make sense to anyone?
Thanks DaBubba! I didn't even see this one on the Twitter account, so this is a real treat. Was it a newer entry, or one of the older ones?
The male "Lord" class always looked like a big brute in Ogre Battle, so envisioning him as a "berserker" at first makes sense. At least, I think that's what Matsuno is referring to when he says "male warrior."
Prince Tristan, Aisha, and Saladin (translated as "Saradin" IIRC) made it into the final version of Ogre Battle: MOTBQ as very important characters. What I'm not sure about is whether "Ash" eventually developed into the knight "Ashe," or if they're completely unrelated.
I'm so loving that Matsuno's going back through his notes on the series. It shows that he's interested either in continuing the series if LUCT sells well enough, or maybe even going back to MOTBQ and sprucing it up, maybe...
