Sega's full-year sales jump 20% as Persona and Like a Dragon sales surge



Quote

As for the dip in proftability, Sega blamed it in part on the costs of its European restructuring, which included hundreds of layoffs and was announced just days before the end of the fiscal year.
While the entertainment contents division (including the home gaming business) was treading water through the first nine months of the fiscal year, a strong fourth quarter pushed the segment's full-year sales up 12% to ...

Former Sega CCO Toshihiro Nagoshi Reveals Yakuza’s Rocky Path To Approval



Quote
In a recent interview with Weekly Ochiai, former Sega chief creative officer Toshihiro Nagoshi explained how the first Yakuza game struggled to get greenlit by Sega.
