Reclusive Artist: Yoko Taro considers most of interviews a "boring chore" and often either looks away or dons a No. 7 mask in front of cameras. However, he's evidently more forthcoming with information when he's having a drink.
Or in the case of the Drakengard 3 interview he donned a hand puppet and spoke through that.
He had some really dickish moves planned for Drakengard 3 but didn't follow through on them - namely, calling it Drakengard 4, supposed to leave fans confused as to where the third game went to. Also he was planning to make it take place in a contemporary setting following the adventures of a Japanese high school girl who would call for her dragon companion through her cellphone.
