The latest episode of Did You Know Gaming webs series takes a look at the Dragon Quest series and the involvement of Dragon Ball creator Akira Toriyama.

RPGs like Ultima and Wizardry inspired the game's creation, which isn't too surprising, but a game released in Japan called The Portopia Serial Murder Case also served as inspiration for the popular Japanese fantasy RPG.

You can learn about the series in the video below.
