A few weeks ago, there were media reports that Toshihiro Nagoshi would migrate from Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio to NetEase. They came out today and it’s going to be even bigger.
In addition to Toshihiro Nagoshi, Daisuke Sato will also leave the studio. Former Yakuza producer Masayoshi Yokoyama becomes the new studio boss. In this context, it was also confirmed that the story of Ichiban Kasuga will be continued. A sequel to Yakuza: Like a Dragon is already in development.
The studio’s new management team can be found in an English-language post on the official website remove. You can also find messages from Masayoshi Yokoyama, Toshihiro Nagoshi and Daisuke Sato.
With Yakuza: Like a Dragon, the popular Yakuza series has already received some innovations, including a new main character to follow in the great footsteps of Kazuma Kiryu. There was also a turn-based combat system, which the second part will probably stick to.
In an interview, the creators recently revealed that it’s also conceivable that the Yakuza series may leave Japan behind and its characters will explore new countries and regions in the future. Let’s see how much fresh air the series is getting now.
