Xbox pays homage to Akira Toriyama with a small gift for fans

Akira Toriyama is such a legendary figure that he will be honored for a long time to come, and in addition to the well-known Dragon Ball saga his contribution was legendary for video games, including the Blue Dragon released for Xbox 360 way back in 2006 in Japan.\ r\nDeveloped by Hironobu Sakaguchi’s Mistwalker, creator of Final Fantasy, the title released on the old generation of Microsoft consoles was an attempt to approach the Japanese market with a JRPG that was attractive to fans of the Land of the Rising Sun.\r\nWith the contribution of Akira Toriyama in the character design, Blue Dragon was a moderately successful title that also generated a spin-off for Nintendo DS and an animated series (you can also get it on Blu-Ray on Amazon).\r\nDespite not being a best seller , Blue Dragon is a video game that has managed to carve out its own niche and that especially today, after the premature death of the master Toriyama, can only be remembered with more sadness than nostalgia.\r\nFor this reason, Microsoft has decided to give a small gift to his fans, dedicated specifically to Blue Dragon:\r\n\r\nFrom now on it is possible to download and install a dynamic theme dedicated to the JRPG for free, to have a pinch of Akira Toriyama’s art always within reach of your dashboard. \r\nWho knows, for this sad occasion there may be the possibility of rediscovering Blue Dragon, perhaps with a remake or a remastered version for the new generations, although it is very difficult.\r\nWe will certainly remember Blue Dragon and Akira’s work Toriyama also in video games, given that his connection with this medium has been very extensive even well outside of Dragon Ball, as we told you in one of our Gameshift Originals.\r\nAnd it is curious how the master’s next upcoming video game and Sand Land, a tie-in from one of his lesser-known but very interesting works, which we tried recently.
