Yakuza Creator Forms New Nagoshi Studio

Yakuza creator Toshihiro Nagoshi is now the president and CEO of the newly-established Nagoshi Studio. The new studio is based in Shibuya, Tokyo, Japan, under NetEase Games.

Back in October 2021, Nagoshi announced his departure from Sega’s Ryu Ga Gotoku (RGG) Studio. At the studio, he created and developed the popular Yakuza franchise, and spinoffs like Judgment (and its sequel). It also turns out that those rumours from August 2021 were true, which then claimed that NetEase Games was looking to hire Nagoshi.

You can head on over to the official website of Nagoshi Studio here.

In the meantime, check out the full statement by Nagoshi himself below:

The sea of change that began in the entertainment industry in the late 20th century has brought even greater change to the industry in the 21st century.

Changes to entertainment content, how it’s made and the business model driven by technology and infrastructure advances have sparked a paradigm shift, and these changes are continuing to unfold with greater and greater speed.

What only yesterday had been considered the height of cool now suddenly becomes outdated before you know it.

For creators, this makes working in the industry today incredibly challenging.

But no matter how the times change, I believe that what people essentially want from entertainment has not changed one bit.

People see their dreams in entertainment.

People look to entertainment to give them hope in life, to soothe them in times of difficulty, and to add excitement in happy times. People look to entertainment to provide the spark for all kinds of events.

The appetite for entertainment is the same today as it was in the past.

There are obviously differences between the past and the present in how entertainment is consumed, its volume and velocity, but its essence remains the same.

The only way to deliver this essence to the world is if all creators approach the works they create with seriousness and clarity while grinding away to get closer to reaching the ideal.

One of my goals at this studio is to create an open atmosphere.

This may sound like an overly simplistic goal.

But even the most talented creators cannot fully unleash their abilities in isolation.

I believe that the first step to creating high-quality titles and delivering the essence of entertainment with strong motivation starts with creating an open atmosphere in the studio.

This means having open-ended discussions that ignore seniority and hierarchy.

This means not fearing mistakes while also not being afraid to correct them, and treating failures as assets. This means not giving up on reaching the ideal, and fighting to get closer to it.

This may seem so simple, but the simplest things can unexpectedly be the hardest to do, and at the same time the most important.

Nagoshi Studio is committed to creating content for the world to enjoy from this atmosphere.

The studio will focus on developing high-quality console titles that will be released worldwide. We look forward to seeing what else Nagoshi and the folks at Nagoshi Studio will have in store for us in the future. Maybe even something as crazy as the Yakuza games.
