Yakuza games are also full of stylized violence and goofy moments, so Nagoshi doesn’t seem to plan to stray incredibly far from his roots.

Nagoshi left Sega and Ryuga Gotoku Studios last October, and said the team he left behind “will continue to bring great games to the world.” Founded by NetEase Games, a Chinese gaming powerhouse fueled by the success of mobile games such as Identity V.

Prior to retirement, Mr. Nagoshi spent more than 30 years at Sega in various roles. He has been involved in many famous franchises beyond the yakuza, such as Virtua Fighter, Super Monkey Ball, and F-Zero. He said it was nearby.
