I thought and hoped with Nagoshi-san gone the creative side of SEGA might make a come back. I guess its a bit soon and while its nice to see SEGA focus on making AAA games for the consoles and PC again. It's very disappointing to see them milk the Yakuza IP (yet again) and even more of a letdown to see the team use Unreal for the Remaster, much less have the team handle the remaster too.

Strike when the iron is still hot and I guess that what they do with Yakuza.
That reminds me that back then they used Unreal for Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania since Dragon Engine isn't compatible with Switch.
Could it be they that they use Unreal since may be they're planning Switch version too?
Not soon of course but may be a year later after PC/XBox/PS4&5 version?

I would have liked to see the team given more time to work on a new IP and the Yakuza IP given a little break. I'll still end up buying them all mind LOL

Same. They do work on a new IP but I guess SEGA wouldn't let them focus on that, not when Yakuza is still hot item...

Last year they made Super Monkey Ball Banana Mania and Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown so I'm sure they're good enough to create a new Non Yakuza game.

Happy Crane Day!



Quote
Today is Crane Day in Japan
In the Yakuza series, in addition to delinquents and yakuza, you can also fight against heavy machinery like cranes with wrecking balls!

‘Yakuza 8’ Will be the ‘Largest Like A Dragon Game to Date, Sega Confirms



Quote
Yokoyama further added that Like a Dragon 8 role-playing gameplay design would share similarities with Yakuza: Like a Dragon.
This choice was made due to the game’s story since both games include a ton of discussions and focus on working with friends, so the RPG system and combat appeared to be the way to go.

Yakuza devs reveal why Ishin was remade instead of Kenzan



Quote
"From all of the fan feedback we have received, many fans wanted an Ishin remake more than Kenzan," the Yakuza executive producer Masayoshi Yokoyama and chief producer Hiroyuki Sakamoto pair told the outlet.
"We also believed that Ishin was more popular, and if we wanted to bring in the Kenzan remake, we would want to change the storyline a little bit, and that would take a lot of time and would be budget-consuming. It really needs good timing for us to consider a remake of Kenzan."

Milk like SEGA did with Monkeyball more like ;). I'm not a fan of years sequels for non sports titles and Mania is made with Unity BTW.

They are said to be making a new IP but with the team having to work on so making Yakuza games one wonders how many resources they can dictate to the game.

I agree with you and that what hurts so much.  The team show they can make ace new IP; Binary Domain is ace and for me better than the Gears of War Games. I so rather the team make a sequel to that game

I see.. So that's why Mania is running flawlessly in Switch..
Still it's a 2D game though so I guess it's not the best comparison for Yakuza.

I can imagine how it went in SEGA HQ :

RGG Studio: Okay, if a new IP can't be our focus, our Virtua Fighter 5: Ultimate Showdown! is also done now, can we make Virtua Fighter 6 now?
SEGA : Sure. But after you finished Ishin remake. And LAD Gaiden. And LAD8.

LAD8 is 2024 so probably their new game or VF6 (if it ever planned) will be out in 2025. Or may be later than that if turned out LAD8 is a succes and SEGA askedthem to make LAD9.

Hopfully there're legacy calls made while under Nagoshi-san. Maybe next year we'll see some more creativity back at SEGA. To their credit mind, SEGA Japan been making great games the last few years. I really hope we get a sequel to Sakura Wars

I don't want mobile games to be the future. Let PC master race remain.

I'm a PC gamer because it's more convenient. But whenever Sega releases a new mobile game that my phone just can't play I feel left out. It's why I never played Sonic Runners or Speed Battle even though I'll probably like those games.
