Toshihiro Nagoshi, creator of Yakuza, would like to do something new
In his own words, he considers it a shame that a talented team like Ryu Ga Gotoku’s has only worked on one series all this time.
For a few years, the Yakuza saga has been living a magical moment, more and more players are entering their digital worlds, meeting their characters and falling in love with everything. Now, with the latest release in the saga (Yakuza Like a Dragon) and most of its titles on multiple platforms, and many on digital services like Xbox Game Pass, its creator has given an interview about his life, career, etc.
And it was precisely in this interview with Gameinformer that he opened up about the saga in general, how the beginning of this started a drunken night and what Nagoshi he helped his parents pay off debts. After 15 years of his lifeIt is clear that what he is best known for is Yakuza, and he will precisely want to move in other areas than to be known only for one work.
Nagoshi is aware that Yakuza fans they will want more games in the series in the future, but also mention that he would like to see his team with new challenges in the future. “The team members in Ryu Ga Gotoku have only worked on the Yakuza saga, I think it would be a waste if so much talent in the team couldn’t use their abilities to their full potential,” Nagoshi said in the interview.
“That might challenge ourselves to create something totally new in a different genre and with a different style. We still don’t know what it might be, but that’s something we’re considering a lot right now as our team grows as a team. everything”.
Remember the fact that the team behind Yakuza also created Judgment, but even if it was a new IP it is based on the same world as a spin-off.

For now, right now we don’t know anything beyond Yakuza, but surely soon they will find something that satisfies them as a team.
