Yakuza Producer and Sega Games Corporate Director Toshihiro Nagoshi walked on the stage of the presentation of the Nintendo Switch to talk about his personal involvement with the new console and that of the publisher.

Nagoshi-san mentioned that Sega sees a “tremendous amount of appeal in the Nintendo Switch” and intends to be present on the platform. Similarly, as an individual creator, Nagoshi-san sees “a new kind of appeal” in the hardware.

The developer promised that the company “will consider new games for the Nintendo Switch and will present them soon.”

Nagoshi-san continued by mentioning that he’d like to take advantage of the new concept of the Nintendo Switch to create an interesting game himself.

It’s worth mentioning that Nagoshi-san did not mention or even hint that the possibility that his game would be a Yakuza title. As a matter of fact, just a couple of weeks ago he mentioned that he’d like to work on something new, and this might very well turn out to be his contribution to the Switch lineup .
