Yakuza Creator Hasn’t Really Thought About Bringing Series To Nintendo Switch

Toshihiro Nagoshi, the creator of the Yakuza franchise which is currently on PlayStation systems, has recently been interviewed by IGN Japan. The site asked him whether the Yakuza series could eventually appear on the Nintendo Switch. Mr. Nagoshi replied that he hasn’t actually considered it. He also said in the same interview that he very much doubts that Smash Bros creator Masahiro Sakurai would personally want either Kiryu and Majima as DLC characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

GN: Is there a possibility that the Ryu ga Gotoku series will appear on the Nintendo Switch platform?

Nagoshi: I haven’t considered it at this time.

  1. Doing it when no one cares anymore.
    But anyways, Saint’s Row the Third is pretty good game.
    If you never played it and are glamouring for GTA or Yakuza for Switch, that is a game you should try when it releases.

  2. I had a hard time getting into Yakuza because of the spoken Japanese language. I might have loved it if it were spoken in English. I don’t want to have to read text the whole time I play a game. And btw, is the main guy in this series ever NOT pissed off? In every picture I’ve seen of him, he always looks angry at the world.

  3. That’s a pretty dumb response considering the switch is selling so much in Japan, to not consider it at all is to be out of touch with the market, not a good sign at all.

  4. Thats fine. The series is still fairly new to the pc market with yakuza 0 & yakuza Kiwami.
    I feel like they won’t consider another market place until they’ve gotten a better idea of the pc crowd.

  5. The developers have said they want Yakuza to be “a living room experience”like watching a movie. Maybe they’re not a fan of people experience it on the go in a small screen.
