Yakuza creator explains his loyalty to SEGA
In a time that Japanese games development luminaries are leaving their comfortable jobs to go it alone, the man behind some of SEGA's biggest hits of their post-hardware development era, Toshihiro Nagoshi plans to remain with SEGA.
Nagoshi-san's reasons behind staying with SEGA lie in his deep loyalty to the company that h says taught him about having fun making games.
He said: "I doubt I would leave this company in 10 or even 20 years. It's not that I'm satisfied at Sega so much as I really owe one to Sega - they taught me how much fun making games can be. Unless something really drastic happens, I'm not going to leave on my own volition."
Nagoshi is responsible for the Yakuza and Super Monkey Ball franchises and has a new sci-fi shooter, Binary Domain, due out in February on SP3 and Xbox 360.
