The Video Game Art of Akira Toriyama

Den of Geek's got an awesome article exploring Akira Toriyama's involvement in video games that I highly recommend checking out!

"Fans of Akira Toriyama undoubtedly know him best from his work in both manga and anime. His main creation, Dragon Ball, is nothing short of a masterpiece. 
From Dragon Ball's debut in Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1986 to its latest anime series, Dragon Ball Super, Toriyama has been dazzling his audience with epic quests, mystical artifacts, and martial arts. His magnum opus has lived on to inspire millions of fans and creators.  
The same could be said of Toriyama's video game work, which occupies a distinct corner of his career. Through several collaborations with both Square and Enix (before the holy merger) as lead artist, Toriyama shaped the art style of many legendary JRPG titles, including Chrono Trigger and the Dragon Quest series, which proved to be his most lasting success."
