[Ueda is on the left.]
Ryuta Ueda! Who is he you ask? Just a man that worked on games like Panzer Dragoon Saga, Jet Set Radio and the first 3 Yakuza games. Pretty much classy stuff.
Not only is he directing the project, he is also writing scenarios, doing the artwork and more (so teases his facebook page). So if you are a hardcore SEGA fan, this is a title you might want to keep a close eye on.
