With the disaster of SHENMUE GAI behind him Yu Suzuki is now doing a mobile VF game...

Sega and former Sega arcade game creator Yu Suzuki are creator are working together on a social Virtua Fighter game. Virtua Fighter Cool Champ is a card battling game for Mobage with Akira Yuki and Sarah Bryant.

 

YS Net, Suzuki’s new studio and developer of Shenmue City, is supervising the game. Epis is developing the title, which is available to play today. Virtua Fighter Cool Champ is free to play, but is monetized through item sales.

So obviously Sega's and Yu's relationship is still A- ok if they are willing to license one of their premier games out to him. It will also fule these rumours about SHENMUE being outsourced to Yu's studio.
