Yakuza director and creator Toshihiro Nagoshi is no longer SEGA's CCO
Toshihiro Nagoshi, creator of the Yakuza series, stepped down as SEGA's Chief Creative Officer to return to the position of creative director, a move that should bring Nagoshi closer to active development rather than just overseeing projects.
With a press release, Sega-Sammy announced a series of internal changes and restructurings to better respond to the needs of a constantly evolving market, in any case "there will be no changes in terms of names, brands, properties, content and capital".
It is unclear why Nagoshi left SEGA’s Chief Creative Officer, Toshihiro will soon resume his position as creative director and will no longer have to deal with creative oversight of all Japanese company projects.
Surely, therefore, the producer will return to dedicate himself body and soul to his most famous creature, with greater involvement in the development of Yakuza 8. Nagoshi founded Studio Yakuza in 2005 after starting the series of the same name and acting as a director executive of Yakuza Zero, Yakuza 6 The Song of Life and Yakuza Like A Dragon.
In the 1990s, Nagoshi collaborated in the development of Daytona USA and Virtua Striker, while in the 2000s he developed other successful franchises, including Super Monkey Ball and IP, such as Binary Domain and Judgment.
I like several different works, but with a tendency for strange and funny stories.
I like arts, games, drawings and interesting things.
