Mor­ishita on how his free-to-play ti­tan is evolv­ing to sur­vive

Mor­ishita is far from naïve about the fu­ture of Puzzle & Drag­ons, but he’s op­ti­mistic when ques­tioned about the prospects of his so­cial game. “In 2002, ev­ery­one said Rag­narok On­line would never last, but ten years later it’s still go­ing,” he says. “I don’t know that Puzzle & Drag­ons as it stands to­day will last for ten years, but we will con­tinue to evolve not only the mon­sters and dun­geons in­side the game but also the ways to play. For in­stance, we have an ar­cade game com­ing out with Square Enix [ Puzzle & Drag­ons Bat­tle Tour­na­ment], and the 3DS game [ Puzzle & Drag­ons Z, re­leased in De­cem­ber in Ja­pan], so I think we can make the brand last a long time.”
