NetEase launched a new studio with veteran Yakuza producer and executive director Toshihiro Nagoshi. The new Game Studio will simply be called Nagoshi Studio.
Nagoshi will serve as CEO and representative director of the Tokyo-based developer.
The studio has a founding team of eight other members, all veterans from Sega and Yakuza developer Ryu Ga Gotoku Studio.
Nagoshi Studio will focus on “developing high-quality console titles that will be released globally,” NetEase said.
Toshihiro Nagoshi left Sega in February 2021, and reports emerged in August that he was joining NetEase.
