Has Yuji Naka been interviewed in the mag about his legacy and games he's been involved in? I'm sure I've read plenty about him over the years. Was he in the 'Legends' article? I had a quick look at the archive of RG contents but couldn't see what I was looking for.

I have all the mags, 1 through to the current issue, and I'd rather not have to leaf through them all looking for Yuji stuff! So, if anyone can remember and could point me to the correct issues that'd be great.

We've interviewed him in issue 100 about SOnic the hedgehog but that's about it. Nick would have a better idea as he writes all our sonic articles.

Thanks, Darren, I'll have a look at that issue.

Ah, a late one here, but I also interviewed him for the making of Phantasy Star (issue 167). We haven't done an overall career retrospective interview yet.

He made Girls Garden I believe on the SG1000 and did some conversions of OutRun/Afterburner on the SMS.

He's also done NiGHTs but not 100% sure if it was his idea or Ilzuka's.
