Keep reading for the incredibly enthusiastic opening page and an interview with a younger, less tan, Toshihiro Nagoshi.
One of the highlights of the interview for me comes on this last page, when the interviewer asks who AM2’s biggest competitor was. Nagoshi simply responds “AM Annex” (also known as Sega AM9, Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s team).
