Crunchyroll Expo has just added another stellar guest to the 2018 lineup of all-stars: Yuji Horii, the Series Creator and Game Designer of Square Enix’s famed DRAGON QUEST series!


Yuji Horii was born in Hyogo, Japan in 1954. After graduating from Waseda University's School of Letters, Arts and Sciences I, he worked as a freelance writer for newspapers and magazines. He took his first steps as a Game Designer in 1982 when he won a game programming contest sponsored by Enix (now Square Enix).
