The creative left SEGA when the Yakuza saga was at its peak.
In recent years we have been able to see how one of the sagas with the highest growth in the video game industry It has been Yakuza, which has the blessing of being a SEGA license that, in a certain sense, began as a niche, to end up reaching the whole world with even a USAtranslation. And it must be said that the person responsible for this was Toshihiro Nagoshiwho, to the fear of many, left SEGA last year even when Yakuza 8 remained to be released, of which we have already seen the first images.
Be that as it may, it must be said that his departure, despite being notorious, has allowed him create your own studio with NetEase as parent company, this being known as Nagoshi Studio, which is already with the development of your first project. And under this same premise, we have already known the first details of this.
Nagoshi intends to make a video game with violence, but with touches of humor in the purest style of the director
This has been known through an interview with this creative in the German medium 4Players, where he has stated that the idea is to make a game like a Quentin Tarantino moviealthough he has not given many more details about it, but he affirms that they have a rough idea of the violence that the game will havealthough without reaching the genre of suspense or horror.
In fact, as a result of the latter, he has reiterated Tarantino’s style because, despite the violence, he also has own dose of humor, which could go hand in hand with other video games such as SUDA 51 with No More Heroes. In this way, he ends by mentioning that wants something with a bit of silliness, but with human touches and seriousness.
For all these reasons, we will have to see what Nagoshi has in store for him soon, since everything indicates that it will take time to see this or any other project that the creative may launch over time. However, the Yakuza saga makes we can trust your work as director now alone.
