In July, Yakuza executive director and producer Toshihiro Nagoshi used slang to disparage puzzle-game pro players during a livestream. Sega soon apologised, and now, nearly a month later, so has Nagoshi.
Sure, it’s on PC now, but the Yakuza series is synonymous with three generations of PlayStation consoles. And for good reason: Nintendo and Microsoft had their chance, but simply weren’t interested in the Japanese gangster saga.
As previously reported, the new Yakuza game, Yakuza 0, has been announced. As you can probably guess from the number, it’s a prequel.
