ISSUE 43 FULL CONTENTS
DRAGON QUEST HEROES
Legendary producer Ryota Aomi explains the pain (and the pleasure) of turning one of the world’s most famous JRPGs into an action RPG, as Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree’s Woe and the Blight Below is released in the UK.
TALES OF ZESTIRIA
MyM played through the opening moments of the 15th main entry in the Tales of… series, before talking exclusively with the franchise’s shepherd, Hideo Baba, about the JRPG’s 20th anniversary.
THE VOICE OF MARIO
Celebrating Mario’s 30th Anniversary and the recent release of the amazing Super Mario Maker, we sat down with legendary voice actor Charles Martinet to discuss life as the most recognisable character in gaming.
Former model Doona Bae has racked up roles in high-profile projects such as Ring, Cloud Atlas, Jupiter Ascending and Sense8. She reveals how she’s still a crack shot with a bow following top creature feature The Host and how some roles are so tempting, it’s worth waiving your fee.
ON SET: JEKYLL & HYDE
A major new 10-part television drama reimagines Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic gothic horror story, setting it in 1930s London. MyM joined creator Charlie Higson on the set of ITV’s monstrously ambitious production.
Including all the gaming highlights from EGX and a report from London’s annual festival of J-culture.
Rebecca Moriarty sits down with internationally-renowned cosplayer and burlesque performer Stella Chuu, Katharine Byrne chats with Russian Final Fantasy fan Leetah, and we present four more cool cosplay posters for your delight and delectation.
THE TOP 10: MOVIE DINOSAURS
Counting down the best dino-superstars ever to grace the silver screen. What no Jurassic World? Scandal!
